Driving Directions

Drive I-5 north to Exit 21 for Highway 503E, Woodland, and Cougar.

Turn right after exiting onto Highway 503, and drive 0.8 miles to a roundabout.

Bear right off the roundabout onto the Lewis River Road (Highway 503) for Cougar, and proceed 22.1 miles.

Where Highway 503 makes a 90-degree turn right, keep straight on the 503 Spur for Mt. St. Helens, Ape Cave, and Lava Canyon to continue 8.3 miles through Cougar.

Turn right and then right again onto FR 10 to go 0.3 miles, crossing the Lewis River on a bridge.

The gravel road curves left, and you’ll continue another 0.4 miles.

Then turn right onto Road S-1000 (seems to be labeled S-6000 at junction), and you’ll wind up on this road for 4.7 miles to a junction at a saddle (keep on the main track and stay left at junctions with logging roads).

Keep straight, and descend 1.0 miles to make a very sharp turn left.

Drive 1.9 miles to the end of the road.

Fees, Regulations, etc.
