Day Hike - Norway Pass

A 4.5 mile trail with fantastic views of Mount Saint Helens, Spirit Lake and the Mount Margaret backcountry area. This trail is a great outing to view the destruction and regrowth that continues to happen around the Mount Saint Helens blast zone. The top of the pass offers a panoramic view of Spirit Lake. We can pick huckleberries from the bushes growing beside the trail. After the hike, we will drive to the Windy Ridge lookout
