About the event

Note: Creation Encounter has been closely following state restrictions and reopening. As such, this trip will proceed as long as Skamania County is at Phase 3 reopening and the roads to the East Side are open, which we hope will be the case in late June/early July.

Dr Keith Swenson, Adjunct Professor of Natural Sciences at Multnomah University, will lead this trip. With a highlight of a 2.5-mile (round trip) hike on the Harmony Trail to Spirit Lake and the floating log mat, this day trip will provide a good introduction to Mount St. Helens. In addition, we will visit an old growth forest, historic Bear Meadow, Meta Lake, and Windy Ridge. Teaching will be based on a biblical creation worldview. Multnomah Professor Keith Swenson will lead the trip assisted by other Creation Encounter leaders. Please note that moderate physical fitness is required as we will be hiking a total of about three miles and there will be a 600-foot uphill climb coming out from Spirit Lake. 

The trip will meet at 8:30 AM in the rest area in ‘downtown’ Cougar, WA. From there we will carpool to the mountain. Return time to Cougar will be approximately 5 PM. A forest pass is required at the mountain and may be purchased in Cougar or in the national monument for $5. Additional information will be sent to registrants prior to the trip. A donation of $25 per family or $15 for an individual is suggested. This can be payed the day of the tour by cash or check (made payable to ‘John Hergenrather’). 

 --Please also note that we have been implementing an Acknowledgement of Risk for our tours---
