Mt. St. Helens Volcano Run
June 17 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm| Free
Join us for a back country run to Mount St. Helens! Our guests will be members of the Puget Sound Chapter.
We’ll meet at Golden Valley Brewery in Beaverton for our Drivers’ Orientation and to form groups. We’ll depart GVB and wind our way through the twisty back roads on the Oregon side of the Columbia River, avoiding Hwy 30 as much as possible. We’ll cross the river at Longview and begin a leisurely cruise through beautiful countryside heading north to Castle Rock. There we’ll meet up with members of the Puget Sound chapter for lunch.
After “filling our tanks” we’ll form up again and head up Hwy 504 to Johnston Ridge Observatory. The panoramic scenery of this drive is amazing, and gliding along the big sweepers is pure bliss to any auto enthusiast. We’ll form up for a group photo at the Observatory parking area, then enjoy the awesome display of nature’s power at the volcano interpretive center.
You can do one or both stages. There will be a 15-minute restroom break about halfway through each stage. There are no gas stations between the start and Longview, and none after Toutle on hwy 504. Event is free, drivers pay their own lunch, etc.
Join us for a great drive, awesome scenery, and a glimpse at nature’s amazing power.
