Mount St. Helens Singletrack (MTB)

Location:  WA, United States
Starting From: US $1,395.00

Mt St Helens Singletrack

Mount St. Helens was once the 5th largest peak in Washington state. Part of the Cascade Range that includes Mt. Hood, it became infamous in 1980 when a massive eruption killed 57 people, and destroyed homes and infrastructure in the region as it buried the mountains base with hundreds of feet of debris. Volcanic ash showered a wide area, with bits falling from the sky in places as far away as Oklahoma!

The effects of the volcano's frequent eruptions are readily evident, from dried volcanic mud streams, to the crater atop the mountain's summit, but the Mt. St. Helens area more than just a volcanic landscape. There is another whole world of verdant forest filled with creeks, lakes and waterfalls that lies in the shadow of this iconic peak.

And lucky for us, there is a remarkably extensive trail system that runs through this geological patchwork. We ride through deep shaded forest and along exposed ridges as we explore the Mt St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Gifford Pinchot National Forest. You'll get an up-close look at volcanic lahars and the new and different terrain created by the eruption, but you'll also enjoy serene evergreen forest complete with colorful wildflowers, magical meadows, and plenty of plenty of cold, crisp water. It is easy to see how some failed to recognize the destructive potential of this beautiful place.

We take on a moderate amount of mileage each day, but keep in mind, our routes contain lots of climbing and several of the rides include areas with steep drop-offs on the side of the trail.

Travel Insurance

We encourage you very strongly to purchase travel insurance to protect against extenuating circumstances such as illness and injury - believe us, they do come up! We have a special arrangement with TravelGuard insurance so that you may purchase reasonably-priced travel insurance at the same time you place your tour reservation. For a detailed description of the TravelGuard policy we offer, visit our website or call 866-385-4839 ask about product 007715.

Transfer Policy
Multi-day tours only: If you would like to change to a different tour or departure date after signing up, we will be happy to transfer you on a space available basis up until 45 days prior to your tour. Please provide your transfer request in writing - email is sufficient. Please note, a $25 transfer fee will be deducted from your previous payments for each transfer, and if you later choose to cancel your tour, the cancellation deadlines will apply to the date of the originally scheduled tour. Does not apply to ½ and full day tours in Las Vegas or Moab.

Tour Confirmation
Escape confirms tours 30 days prior to tour departure; prior to this time, tours may be cancelled due to low enrollment. After your tour is confirmed, it will not be cancelled for low- enrollment, but in rare cases may be cancelled due to weather, government intervention, unsafe trail conditions, or any other reason that would affect the quality of the schedule tour or the safety of its participants. If we are forced to cancel your tour, we will provide a 100% refund and work to add you to another trip that works for you. If you need to cancel your multiday tour for any reason, your request must be in writing - email is sufficient (no phone cancellations will be accepted).

Travel Plans
We advise you to avoid non-refundable flights and other travel arrangements, and are not responsible for the costs of such arrangement in the event your tour is canceled. The travel insurance offered in conjunction with our tours covers the cost of your tour, but does not cover additional costs such as travel to and from your tour departure location, and hotel stays prior to or following your tour. Please consider purchasing additional insurance coverage if you have non-refundable travel arrangements.
