Spirit Lake Highway closes

By , Columbian Editor

Highway 504, the Spirit Lake Memorial Highway leading toward Mount St. Helens, has closed for the season.

Each year, the state coordinates the annual closure with the U.S. Forest Service in anticipation of hazardous winter weather. The road reopens each spring.

The scenic byway will be closed from the Hummocks Trailhead to the Johnston Ridge Observatory, but Coldwater Lake still will be accessible as weather conditions allow, according to a news release.
