Forest Road Hike Near Mt. St. Helens

2020 Hike #: 164

Hike Distance: 7.8 miles

Elevation Gain: 1317 feet

Yearly Hike Distance: 1247.2 miles

Yearly Elevation Gain: 186058 feet

A beautiful day with plenty of sun and the wind helped us stay cool!

This was a new road area for us and the views were epic. Our favorite part of the hike were the views of Mt. Rainier. Almost all roads we walked had a different vantage point for viewing Mt. Rainier. We dearly miss visiting Mt. Rainier National Park, but it’s very popular and crowded, so we’re happy to view it from this safe location. šŸ™‚

We were also able to see the top one third of Mt. St. Helens but it was obstructed by clouds until the end of our hike. This wasn’t the best location for a photo, though, due to a clear cut location relative to the mountain. Oh well, you can’t have everything.
