For part of the ride he runs along Yale Lake, and if you're out there on the right day you can see the top of Mount St. Helens peeking over the top of the trees. As he passes through the town of Cougar, Highway 503 turns into Road 90. The route gradually elevates into the mountains with mile after mile of dense forests as you navigate through semi-banked turns and crests. About 13 miles northeast of Cougar is the iconic, Mount St. Helens. Overall, it's a great trip if you're in the mood for a nice, mellow day ride.
