We just returned from a week plus trip around the western and southern sides of Mt Adams, venturing to some of the more popular campgrounds and one a little more remote but perhaps even more impressive than the rest.
The trip started at the Kamala Horse Camp where we spent three days riding the varied paths that make up the trail system there. From low level, flat, trails going to Kalama Falls and passing by, and over, ancient lava beds to the Cinnamon trail which follows a ridge top that overlooks the Kalama River Valley, McBride Lake, and offers spectacular views of Mt St. Helens.
The trails here are all wonderfully maintained and the camp itself is just outstanding. It’s the only horse camp that we’ve been to where we could roll out of bed in the AM and pick huckleberries for pancakes!

I’ll post trip reports on the other stops of the trip soon. We’re heading to Haney Meadow
over Labor Day to wrap up collecting data for that area. Have a great weekend!
