Day Hike - Little St. Helens

Rainy day but the views are probably beautiful if you could see anything through the fog and mist!

  • Road rough but passable

    Hansen Creek Trailhead is off exit 47 on i90, follow the FS road past the Humpback Mountain Trailhead and continue up, up, up unti the road dead-ends. The trail is a loop, we headed right from the parking area and followed a pretty sweet mountain bike path to a turnoff (not hard to find, stump with a cairn), down a soaking wet grassy old forest service road to the top of the mountain.

WET! Cold! We saw...nothing. Well, whiteness. But I bet the views are gorgeous on a clear sunny day! Followed the grassy road down to the intersection and turned right, which made the loop. The last mile or so are on a gravel road, since it was raining so heavily and had been for days we saw some pretty waterfalls!
