Everyone knows exercise is great for health! This is a mildly strenuous climb up Mount St. Helens located roughly 70 miles from Portland in Washington map (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=portland,+or&daddr=Trail+marker+for+the+Monitor+Ridge+summit+route,+Mount+St.+Helens,+Washington+USA&hl=en&geocode=%3BCVW0oDmbqOL6FWDSwAIdIHa3-CE3Mp_wzsrm9g&mra=pe&mrcr=0&sll=45.777834,-122.550754&sspn=1.162755,2.903137&ie=UTF8&ll=45.838368,-122.461853&spn=1.161477,2.903137&z=9). It is a rugged, off trail scramble suitable for people in good physical condition who are comfortable on steep irregular terrain. At 8,365 feet elevation, Mount St. Helens provides outstanding views of the crater, lava dome, blast area and surrounding volcanic peaks. The route climbs 4,500 feet from trailhead to rim in 4.5 miles. Estimation on completion of the round trip is 6 - 8.5 hours. What a workout!
We will plan on leaving Portland at 5:30a.m. from New Seasons Concordia Market (NE 33rd and Killingsworth) parking lot. Map.
