Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens spewed 540 million tons of gas and ash, toppled miles of trees, and sent devastating debris flowing down its flanks. Two years later Congress established the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to allow the volcanically altered landscape to recover naturally and to provide for educational, recreational, and research opportunities. Today the 110,000-acre monument has become a world-renowned attraction, with many thousands of visitors each year. A FalconGuide to Mount St. Helens offers twenty-three trails—from short self-guided tours to multiday backpacks—that will help you get the most out of your time on this extraordinary mountain. Through explorations of Lava Canyon, the Plains of Abraham, and much more, author and veteran hiker Fred Barstad offers a close-up look at the destruction and remarkable recovery of Mount St. Helens. He discusses the area's natural and cultural history and points out the geological features, flora, and fauna that make this dynamic region so fascinating and unique. Inside you'll find: • in-depth trail information • detailed trail maps • elevation profiles • accurate directions from major access points • difficulty ratings for each hike Whether you are planning a visit or live in the area, use A FalconGuide to Mount St. Helens as your guide.

About the Author

Fred Barstad has hiked and climbed most of the Cascade Volcanos in Washington and Oregon. He is the author of three Falcon guides, and resides in Enterprise, Oregon.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book - it explains what happened over the millenia, as well as what happened in the spring of 1980, when it erupted in a spectacular fashion. We are spending several days there this summer, and this book really helped us pick out the trails and other things we want to do while we're there. There is a lava tube hike, which I've never seen before! Many thanks to Fred Barstad for an informative and detailed description of Mt. St. Helen's - we can't wait to explore it!
