Mt. St. Helens Volcano Run

Cathedral Park Boat Ramp

About this event

Join us for a back country run to Mount St. Helens! Joining us on the drive will be members of the Puget Sound BMW CCA Chapter!

Stage 1
We’ll meet at Cathedral Park, adjacent to the St John's Bridge, in the large parking lot by the boat put in, for our Drivers’ Orientation and to form our driving groups at 9am. We’ll depart 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 the Puget Sound BMW CCA Chapter for lunch.

Stage 2
After “filling our tanks”, we’ll re-group 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 for any auto enthusiast. We’ll stop for a group car photo in the Observatory's parking area and enjoy the awesome display of nature’s power at the volcano interpretive center.

More Details
You can do one or both stages. There will be a 15-minute restroom break about halfway through each stage. Note: There are *no* gas stations between the start and Longview, and then none after Toutle on Hwy 504. So make sure you tank up before you arrive at Cathedral Park in the morning!  

The drive is free but attendees pay their own lunch and such.

Join us for a great drive, awesome scenery, and a glimpse at nature’s amazing power!

Don't forget, you must sign up to attend, so be sure to register by June 16th!
