13.5 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain • 1 night

Secluded day, only ran into two groups of trail runners the entire loop.

When I want a reminder how small and insignificant I am, I visit Mt St Helen's to be in awe of what nature if capable of. Always amazing to see an ever changing landscape.

Hunting season is definitely gearing up, saw multiple camps set up near the trailhead. Elk season starting soon. Be cautious if visiting in the coming weeks.


Father Guido Sarducci and nuizontann heart this trip.
