Silver Lake, Washington: Outdoor Adventure and Fishing Near Mount St. Helens
Silver Lake can’t ask for a better backdrop, what with Mount St. Helens looming in the distance. Pine trees and a freshwater lake complete the scenic views at this outdoor destination. Boaters and anglers flock to the shores to catch bluegill and other fish, while others are content to paddle canoes through the peaceful waters.
On land, mountain biking is a popular distraction, as is hiking along the wooded trails of Gifford Pinchot National Forest, where more than 1 million acres stretch past forests and waterfalls amid views of Mount St. Helens. When the weather gets colder, skiers can zoom down winding paths at nearby Marble Mountain Snow Park.
