I didn’t have enough time to hike as much of the Loowit trail as I would’ve liked, but I did have some fun rambling about on the boulders of this small section of the trail. The full trail goes all the way around the base of Mt. St. Helens…it’s 28 miles round trip, so I suppose it might be possible to knock it out in one day, but it would be challenging. Most people backpack it and camp along the way (life goals!).
There’s a steep, short trail leading up to the Loowit trail from June Lake
Plenty of views of the mountain!
It’s always funny how the mountain looks different as you approach it
Rubble and ash from the eruption
