Mount Saint Helens National Monument Day Tour
One of the most astonishing landscapes on the planet – Mt. St. Helens is like nowhere you’ve been before.
This isn’t just another driving tour of a beautiful landscape - we prefer to keep travelers outside the vehicle for walks and exploration. You may stop at Lewis & Clark State Park to bask in the shadow of the old-growth forests that once covered the blast zone, or at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge to explore estuary wetlands among a symphony of birdsong.
Once in the Volcanic Monument, you’ll traverse the barren landscapes, stopping for a peaceful hike along the Hummocks Trail or to take in the still blue waters of Coldwater Lake. You will arrive with your guide to the blast-zone, just 5 miles from the crater at the Johnston Ridge Visitors Centre and Observatory. Here, you can snap some photos of the mountain while your naturalist tells the story of that fated day. You will also learn interesting and unique facts about volcanoes and their ever-changing faces. Thereafter, embark on an interpretive walk along the famous Eruption Trail, which offers sweeping views of the blast zone and crater, and teems with stunning purple lupine and other flowers in the mid-to-late summer.
