Ride the new road into the Mount St. Helens blast zone! The Spirit Lake Memorial Highway winds its way up the Toutle Valley to the Johnston Ridge Viewpoint. This is an open highway ride. Most of the course is on new highway with wide shoulders and excellent visibility.
You decide what distance to ride!
53K (33-mile) round-trip fun ride to the Hoffstadt Bluffs Rest Area/Viewpoint. Approximately only a 900′ elevation gain.
87K (54-mile) round trip to Elk Rock.
132K (82-mile) round trip to Johnston Ridge viewpoint.
This is a serious ride. If you think you have the gumption bring all you have because this is a truly hardcore ride.
