The junction of the Ape Canyon Trail #234 and the Loowit Trail #216 is about 4 1/2 miles from the Ape Canyon Trailhead. It is on the edge of the 1980 blast zone and offers vistas to the southwest slopes of Mount Saint Helens and the vestiges of several glaciers as well as south and east. It is 1.8 miles north to the Abraham Trail and 5 miles west to the intersection with the June Lake Trail.
