There are five Mount St. Helens visitor centers located on State Highway 504, the main route into the National Volcanic Monument. Each offers different educational exhibits and viewing opportunities, along with shops, refreshments, and restrooms. Most offer access to trails.
The best way to experience the mountain is to spend a full day, or more, driving east on highway 504, stopping at visitor centers, trails, and view points along the way. The extent of the devastation - obvious even three decades after the 1980 eruption - unfolds with each mile. Yet you will also see nature's amazing recovery, plants and animals of all kinds.
If you only have a short time to spend on your Mount St. Helens visit, the visitor center at Silver Lake is located just off Interstate 5 and offers excellent exhibits and a moving film. If you have time to drive all the way in, but can only stop at a single visitor center, choose the Johnston Ridge Observatory. Both offer stunning views into the volcano's crater.
Note: Volcano viewing is highly dependent on the weather. However, if visibility does not allow a view of Mount St. Helens itself, spending time in the blast zone, visiting the centers, and hiking along interpretive trails is still an experience of a lifetime.
Mount St. Helens Ape Cave Lava Tube is a popular attraction in the Mount St.
Helens National Monument and the longest lava tube in the continental United
States at over two miles in length. The Ape Caves are located on the south
side of Mount St. Helens and accessed through Woodland - go up highway 503
past Cougar. Driving time from I-5 and highway 504 where all the Mount St.
Helens Visitor Centers are to the Ape Cave is just over an hour. The Ape Caves
are open year-round though the parking lot gets snowed in during the winter.
