In the northern part of the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, only a few miles but seemingly a world away from the crowds that gather near the volcano, this wonderful loop hike explores the edge of the volcano’s recovering devastated area. The loop has it all: high ridges with outstanding views; a mountain lake that is ideal for swimming; a lush river valley with huge old-growth forests; and, most surprisingly, very few people. In fact, the trails are more commonly used by equestrians than by hikers. Despite the horses, the trails are in good shape and not badly damaged by hooves or overly aromatic from “apples.”
