Ride to Mt. St. Helens (Johnston Ridge) - Saturday, 9/10

The weather is looking promising for a ride down to Mt. St. Helens this Saturday. I'll be heading down to the west side observation area, Johnston Ridge, followed by a late lunch somewhere on the way back.

The route is about 350 miles, and 7.5 hours of travel time.

If anyone south of Seattle would like to come along, I'll arrange a second pick up spot.

Closest we'll come is when 505 meets Spirit Lake Hwy, near Riverdale Raceway. Should be there around 11:15-11:30. Want to meet us at the little pullout on 505, just north of the stop sign?

Winthrop? That would make for a hell of a long trip. I've never been to this side of St. Helens before, so I'm eager to see it. Have fun in Winthrop. Find the lamb-burgers!

Possibly. Let me ask around and see what interest I can get for this. If I get a bigger group together would you mind coming to Toutle gas station (5 min the other direction) so we have a paved parking lot for a bunch of us to meet up? If it's just a few of us then we'll meet you in the gravel pull off on 505.

No that's Windy Ridge. The Johnston Ridge side is nice and smooth.

Yall might want to look into the state of construction up there. I was up there about 3 weeks ago and they had just begun road work. The weekend after a buddy of mine went and said it was mostly chip seal.

Looks like we're gonna have a decent size group heading up from the 'couve. We'll be going up via back roads. I'll post up the meeting spot/time as soon as we get the details hammered out.
