Mount St. Helens Volcano trail system

Trail system around the volcano at Mount St. Helens

Detailed Description

A trail system is gradually being developed in the region around the volcano along routes considered safe for public access. Many parts of the volcano and debris field remain unstable ground since the eruption. Collapse of ash and rock debris are still occurring throughout the crater and resurgent dome, and along the redeveloping stream and river channels in the debris field. Much of the recoverable timber knocked down by the blast of the volcanic eruption has been removed. However, many areas along the high hillsides, particularly on the area protected from the direct blast, still display fallen trees oriented away from the source of the blast from Mount St. Helens.
