Sheep Canyon Loop via Toutle Trail
This is a difficult lollipop loop route in Mount Saint Helens National Volcanic Monument. Highlights of this hike include Blue Lake, Upper Sheep Canyon Falls (after a short detour along Sheep Canyon Trail) and great views of the Toutle River and Mt. St. Helens. Much of the hike is forested.
The hike begins at the end of forest road 8123, which is blocked due to a washout. More detailed forest service directions. Find the trail to the right (east of FR 8123) and very soon the junction with the Toutle Trail. Turn left (north) to Blue Lake and onward.
Appropriate for teenagers.
