Trip Reports Weather Forecast
Online registration for this event will open up on Sunday, July 15 at 10:15 am. Registering allows us to reserve a seat for you if you would like to ride in the church van.

Join us as we head to Mount Saint Helens and hike the only trail that leads to the edge of Spirit Lake. Before the eruption, Harmony Falls was a sight to behold as it tumbled down toward Spirit Lake. Today, those falls are underwater as the lake is now 250 feet higher than it was before the eruption. The current Harmony Falls is small set of melodious cascades.

Gaze across Spirit Lake as you stare into the heart of the blast zone. You will notice the logs, still floating on the surface of Spirit Lake, drifting to and fro with the wind, refusing to sink, giving their testimony to the forest that stood before the blast.

Bench and Snow lakes are found just above the head of the Stevens Canyon Road, but you will feel like you're deep in the backcountry once you immerse yourself in the cool lakes basin. The lakes are clear and pristine, and the upper lake, Snow, is nestled in a snow-filled cirque with fabulous views up to Unicorn Peak. Bench Lake boasts a great view of Mount Rainier.
