“Come visit St. Helens and marvel at how the landscape was transformed by the eruption in 1986 and the 30+ years of recovery and regeneration. All visitors centers are worth the stop. ”

“Part of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, The Ape Caves, Lava Tube and Interpretive Center are popular attractions in the Mount St. Helens National Monument and the longest lava tube in the continental United States at over two miles in length. The Ape Caves are located on the south side of Mount St. Helens and accessed through Woodland. Go up highway 503 past Cougar. Driving time from I-5 and highway 504 where all the Mount St. Helens Visitor Centers are to the Ape Cave is just over an hour. The Ape Caves are open year-round though the parking lot gets snowed in during the winter. This attraction is very popular with East Coast visitors.”

Museum
“Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument -- the official visitors center built on the ridge where David Johnston, USGS volcanologist, radioed that he was witnessing Mt. St. Helens collapse in the largest landslide in recorded history.... and where he perished moments later. The views of the crater are stunning, and a 9-mile hike will take you into the crater atop the debris -- to the limit where the public is allowed to travel. Ascending the Sasquatch Steps, a waterfall pours out of the crated into the debris field. Pumice stones the size of your head lay scattered about the pumice fields (because of the air pockets, you can toss them about like softballs). Nothing beats the night sky!”
