FRIDAY 9/7 Day trip from Portland... Mt St Helens, Gorge...?

Jump to last reply

Hi all - in need of some slightly last-minute advice! My boyfriend and I are in Portland until Saturday and I've booked a Zipcar (AWD Subaru Impreza that comes with an OR State Parks pass!) from 8am-8pm on Friday 9/7. The original plan was to visit Mt. St. Helens, but I have some questions/uncertainties I'm hoping you can help with:

1. Is Mt. St. Helens the best day trip option, or should we consider Mt. Hood or somewhere else? I know some people suggest the coast as a better day trip but we'd really love to get out to the mountains, coming from WI. If this is the best option, what is the best route/stops/way to do this - just head up to Johnston Ridge Observatory and back? Any beginner-intermediate hiking trails we should check out? And what should we do about lunch/dinner - we don't have a cooler or anything to bring with, unfortunately.

2. Is it possible to visit Multnomah Falls and Mt. St. Helens in this time frame? If not, is there somewhere else in the mountains we can go from Multnomah Falls that will be more feasible?

Thanks a bunch in advance!
