Windy Ridge is the closest place you can get to Mt. St. Helens in a car and currently the only visitor access to the volcano after rockslides this summer, 2023, closed the road to Johnson Ridge Observatory. While another rockslide summer 2023 closed the highway to Windy Ridge from Cougar, you CAN still access the ridge from Randle. I will say the road to Windy Ridge is slow and adventurous but passable. It takes every bit of an hour to reach the parking lot and viewing area from Randle. While the views from Johnson Ridge appear amazing, this is the closest you can get to the volcano, and if you hike the ridge, you can get amazing views of the volcano and Spirit Lake. I was simply glad there was a least some place I could visit and see the volcano of my youth. Additionally, from Windy Ridge there is a trail where you can walk on the volcano. The trail is a 2 mile gravel road from the parking lot to the volcano where you can hike up the mounds of dirt and rock moved by the eruption. It was really cool to walk on the volcano.

Windy Ridge was constructed right after the eruption with pictures of the parking lot open in 1985. Today it looks like the park service has abandoned the amenities and it looks as though nature is simply taking over. With that said, if you can brave the ride out, it is amazing for those who visit. I have been to Vesuvius and the experience here is simply better.

Very disappointed we drove 2 hours to find the road closed. We desperately wanted to see the Mt St Helens blast zone area but could not get close. Not sure why road was closed in mid-late June. We did get a distant photo of the mountain.

This is our third trip to Mt. St. Helen's and we never tire of it; although, the older we get the more challenging it gets to climb up to the viewpoints. It's been at least 28 years since we last came to this area and this particular viewpoint wasn't there. It was awesome to see how nature is repairing itself. Even though it was cloudy, we still managed to get some great views.

Went here with our three children. It was incredible to see the destruction of the trees and vegetation. The view of Mount St Helens and Spirit Lake are like no other. Highly recommend!

Worth the scenic drive, watch out for uneven roads though. You have a great view of the crater and the surrounding area on a nice day. Unfortunately it was a little cloudy when we went but it was still amazing. If you feel up for it, climb the 400+ stairs to have an even better view of the area. Really beautiful.

The drive is a bit long and winding but interesting to see the damage done to the forest. After all of these years it is still evident that the mountain had blown. When you get to the top of the road, there is ample parking. You can then hike around for a short walk or long. Lots of beautiful views.

Spectacularly beautiful! A great location to bring the family not much for facilities but the view is undescribable!

Windy Ridge Viewpoint is stunning! The drive to the viewpoint is gorgeous as well. I was surprised to see the log mat still in Spirit Lake. We took the sand ladder trail (368 steps) for great views of spirit lake and Mt. St. Helens. It was sad and hard to grasp that there was lodge now underneath Spirit Lake. You would never know from looking at all the beauty that there was such devastation here years ago.

We traveled from Packwood to windy Ridge; it was on paved roads, in fairly good condition. some areas were in need of paving but for the most part, pretty good. the road winds up and up. It was a relatively quick trip, first thing in the morning. Probably too 45-50 minutes. You know you are getting close when you see the skeletons of the trees. Even after all these years, the damage is evident. When Mt' St Helen's blew out, there was no lava...just hot ash, force and mud. When you turn into the parking lot and view the size of the volcano it leaves you speechless. There are signs along the railings in the parking lot with information but there is no visitors center. There are basic restrooms just below the ladder steps ,384 I think...to view on high the volcano, the lake and the surrounding area. there are also informative signs here as well. On the way down we stopped at some of the side trails. The power of nature cannot be underestimated...seeing this certainly was humbling.
