A novel trip. See inside the volcano and the new dome rising from the middle. Enjoy and scenic drive to the observatory and many other interesting stops along the way. You can learn a lot about the volcano stopping at each visitor center. No charges except at Johnston Ridge.
About 2 hours from us but is one of the best places to view Mt Saint Helens in the area.

For spectacular views of Mt. St. Helens, a great film about the day the volcano blew, and rangers on hand to field questions. This is the destination to head for to really see the volcano!
Great Mountain View on a clear day. A few hikes you can do from here with a permit.
Stare right into the crater of Mt. St. Helens from the huge glass windows of the observatory. Learn of the eruption and see the aftereffects as time slowly heals the path of destruction. Recommended.
A must see when you're in Washington " Mount St Helens". She's really quite impressive.
Incredible visitor center. Watch the film- the curtain at the end will make your jaw drop.
If you want to see the famous volcano site, this is it. The Observatory sits on a bluff just 5-1/2 miles from the crater and offers grand views of Mount St. Helens and much of the 1980 blast zone.
