Snowshoe Adventures allow participants to explore some of the most breathtaking scenery in the state, including Elk Rock, Old Man Pass, Ape Caves, and June Lake. Hikes are guided by outdoor specialists from the Mount St. Helens Institute.
Participants can bring their own snowshoes or rent a pair (with trekking poles) for $15. Hiking routes are moderately difficult, and hikers need to come prepared with proper gear and water. The Snowshoe Adventures are quite popular, and some hikes sell out in advance, so early registration is suggested. Please note: the $30 registration fee is non-refundable.
Snowshoe Adventures will be held on Feb. 15, 22, March 1 and 8.
