USGS Mt Adams West. DeLorme: p34/C4. S2-T8N-R10E.

Until its May 18, 1980 eruption, Mount St Helens (9677') was the County HP. When that blast blew its elevation down to 8365 feet, a non-descript spot on the east boundary of the county, on the west ridge of Mount Adams above the Pinnacle Glacier, became the HP. The quickest way is from the west via a trail off FS Road 23 between Noname and Twin Falls Creeks to Burnt Rock, then up easy snow and volcanic rock slopes.
