Climbers Bivouac which accesses the summer climbing route to the summit of Mt. St. Helens (Monitor Ridge route) is now OPEN.
Be advised the Monitor Ridge route is popular and parking is limited at Climbers Bivouac. Motorhomes and trailer trailers are asked to park at Marble Mountain Sno Park. Overflow parking for climbing is located at Marble Mountain Sno Park, however this parking area accesses the winter climbing route (Worm Flows). Be prepared to adjust your trip due to limited parking.
Hikers and back packers should be prepared for limited water resources this spring and summer on the Monument due to low winter snow pack. Please be prepared and carry plenty of water when visiting the Monument’s backcountry and trails.
