Description

From the Loowit Trail (#216) and Ape Canyon Trail (#234) riding up from the south, head north to the Plains of Abraham Trail (#216D) with incredible up close views of Mt. St. Helens eastern slope. Signposts note the trail junctions and mileage and dark volcanic rock cairns help mark the route.

The trail climbs and descends along a hillside ridge to Windy Ridge Road (FS 99), but a good turnaround point is at the long staircase just south of the road.
