Independence Loop

Independence Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The Independence Loop offers some of the best scenery to be found in Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, including Spirit Lake, the gaping crater of Mount St. Helens, the huge volcanic cones of Mount Adams and Mount Rainier, and the jagged peaks and green ridges of the Mount Margaret Backcountry. All the while you are passing through terrain that nature is diligently working to revegetate."
