I've hiked this trail twice, with my younger son in the late fall a few years ago during a light snow and in late June with my older son. It gives a sense of the scale of the landslide that happened during the 1980 eruption....More

We hiked the trail in March during light snowfall, temperature in the low 30's, and encountered equal amounts of snow and gravel/mud. Trail was still easy to discern. Beautiful this time of year too, although too overcast on this day to see the mountain.

This is a relatively easy hike...not too strenuous. The parking lot for the trailhead is right on the scenic highway. Because there were no real "wow" moments, I would suggest going to the visitor center and observatory first to get all of your Mt. St....More

This is one of the better hikes that I have taken in both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. It is a 2.5 mile loop that isn't too steep either going up or down. Along the way, you will pass through different habitats ranging from...More

We walked Hummocks after hearing a talk at the main center ....really helped with knowing what we were looking at. It was a very hot day and we were glad that we had water. I would say this trail was easy but longer than I...More

Went through this trail today with a 5 and 3 yr old. Our 3 yr old rode in the hiking backpack almost the whole way. Would have been a bit much for her, especially up and down some of the steeper inclines. Our son did...More

A hummock is a steep-sided hill that used to be part of the peak of Mount St. Helens. The hummocks were created in the valley of the North Fork Toutle River where the landslide that followed the volcano eruption deposited portions of the former peak....More

Very easy trail, great for small children. Essentially flat, with an easy turn around spot if the full loop is too long for you. The sites are fairly mediocre. If you have the skill for a more difficult trail, I wouldn't recommend spending your time...More
