Saint Helens Lake Arch

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking west through the St. Helens Arch, Coldwater Ridge, Boundary Trail (bobcat)


The Boundary Trail passes through this arch on a narrow ridge above Saint Helens Lake. The arch was virtually unknown until the 1980 eruption, after which it was exposed for all to see, and the trail was reconstructed to pass through it. This is the only trail in southwest Washington/northwest Oregon that passes through a rock arch!
