Mt. St. Helens is unquestionably one of the region’s most iconic, well-known, and “powerful” attractions. Approaching Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument from the south, you'll have the unique opportunity to enjoy both spelunking at the Ape Cave, the largest continuous lava tube in the continental United States, as well as exploring the visitor centers in and around the “Blast Zone.”
Traveling along the Historic Columbia River Highway, you will have the chance to see a few of over 70 waterfalls, including the second tallest perennial waterfall in the US, Multnomah Falls. Opportunities for hiking, splashing, and photography abound as trails to, under and around these natural beauties provide ample access for every kind of adventurer. You'll also enjoy some wine tasting.
