So cool to be walking on hills that came out from the crater, and have been recovering for 35 years.

Hummocks are small intact pieces from the mountain. They are small hills. After St. Helen's many of the Hummocks slided with th landslide.

Still I was able to take a picture and it was beautiful. We hiked and found it.

Worthwhile to see!

We did the trail in about 2 hours because there is a lot of neat scenery to take in. It's an interesting trail that takes you into rain forest type areas with a little stream running throughout and then you come out and see bigger hammocks and rocky ares and swampy areas. Lots of variety. It was a fairly relaxing trail. We went in the morning and were the only ones on the trail. It can get wet in certain areas with the plants right next to the trail and they can get you pretty wet. I had to wring my socks out when we were done. But it was worth it.

I've hiked this trail twice, with my younger son in the late fall a few years ago during a light snow and in late June with my older son. It gives a sense of the scale of the landslide that happened during the 1980 eruption.

Looking at the large hummocks and then turning to Mt. St. Helens and realizing these house sized boulders were sent hurtling down the mountain in the landslide was quite impressive.

On both occasions we saw wildlife. Notably Elk on the hike in the fall - we were able to see a group of Elk (one bull and four cows) on several occasions on the hike although they stayed far enough to prevent getting any good pictures. On the hike this summer, we saw two deer and were able to get very close (see pictures).

It's not a difficult hike, okay for younger kids and worth the time. Another reviewer suggested going to the visitor center and/or Johnston Ridge first. I completely agree with this advice. Definitely want to get a good view of the mountain and a sense of the scale of what happened before this hike.

Definitely worthwhile if your schedule allows.
