Whether you just want to stretch your legs on a short interpretive trail near the visitor center or you're looking for an uncrowded backcountry route on the side of an active volcano, Day Hiking: Mount St. Helens
will help you select the adventure you're looking for.
This newest addition in this popular Day Hiking series includes a new feature: hikes of less than 3 miles - nature and interpretive trails - that are featured in short write-ups, without a point by point description or map. They are a bonus to the meat of this collection of the best trails on Mount St. Helens and in the surrounding forests. The guide also includes photos, maps, descriptions, and driving directions to all the longer trails, indicating those with camping sites and opportunities to link hikes for multi-day adventures. The book is organized according to the mountain's aspects - east side, west side, south side, or north side, which is how many people explore it.
