Mt St Helens close proximity to Portland makes it almost seem like an Oregon trail sometimes. So much so that the Oregon Endurance Series (https://ormtb.wordpress.com) an unofficial, informal race series, has included St Helens. This is that course. It's a big one, 80 miles and about 11K of climbing.
