The Hummocks Trail is about a 2.4 mile loop trail that explores the unique geology of the ever-changing Hummocks area below Mt. St. Helens.

The trail has a number of ups and downs as you pass the many ponds and ash/rock/mud hills (hummocks) on your way towards the North Fork Toutle River. There is abundant wildlife in the area including birds, beaver and elk.

This is also a great place to park and extend your day of hiking on the Boundary Trail towards Johnston Ridge. The Boundary Trail is accessible about 1/2 half mile from the parking lot.

Getting there: From Castle Rock, drive about 45 miles east on Highway 504 toward Johnston Ridge. Just past the Coldwater Lake turn off, turn right into the Hummocks trailhead parking area.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
