2018 Loowit Trail Attempt Around Mount St. Helens

I have an annual commitment to hike around Mount St. Helens along the Loowit Trail in the spring. Usually the snow has melted, however this year in 2018 there was more snow than usual and our trip had to be adjusted.

Backpacking is about making good decisions, taking calculated risks, and ultimately having a good time. After falling into melted snow holes while pushing through the timber trying to find the trail and only going 5 miles in about 5 hours, we took lunch, and made an alternate plan.

This is a video of that trip. Enjoy!
