The Forest Service is starting to plan new trails and campgrounds in the Mt. St. Helens National Monument. Lisa Romano says it's difficult finding enough flat space to build a campground. Two trails are being considered: a one-mile trail from the Ape Ccaves, and then a longer trail from Johnston Ridge Observatory that would give hikers a view at 6800 feet into the crater. They’ll start initial environmental reviews this summer.
