Mt. St. Helens Summit
Hike to the crater rim of Mt. St. Helens, and gaze into the Northwest's most famous volcano. This is a single-day hike.
Climb an Iconic Volcano
Join us for a day packed full of action and adventure on this iconic volcano! Permits for Mt. St. Helens sell out within hours each season. Leave it to us to provide the permits, get you to and from the mountain, and up to the crater rim. There you will enjoy a stunning panorama of Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Adams (on a clear day), as well as a view of the new summit building within the crater of Mt. Saint Helens. You will also get to witness the power of the blast that forever changed the surrounding area. This adventure is a full day, and you should be in adequate physical condition to attempt the hike.
Your guides will teach you everything you need to know about hiking Mt. St. Helens. No climbing experience necessary!
Participants must be able to hike several miles a day up very steep inclines on loose rock and snow while carrying a 40lb (or heavier) pack.

We had a great time on our trip with Rare Earth Adventures. Our knowledgeable guide Ryan was excellent and made it great! We learned a lot and most importantly had lots of fun. We highly recommend this company!
