The Beauty of Life is Found in Adventure!

Cascade Pack & Paddle, LLC offers Volcano Naturalist guided kayak tours on Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument's Coldwater Lake and kayak tours and kayak camping on the Lewis River's Merwin, Yale and Swift reservoirs.  And we will be offering a number of Volcano Discovery Hikes for the Mount St. Helens Institute and led Snowshoe Adventures for the Institute this past winter.

We offer Coldwater Lake kayak tours from May through the end of September. More information can be found at the Kayak Tours page. 

Kayak tours on Lake Merwin, Yale Reservoir and Swift Reservoir in Southwest Washington are offered from April through October. More information can be found at the Kayak Tours page.

Hiking and Backpacking

For 2014 we will be leading the Volcano Discovery Hikes including a beginners backpacking trip. More information can be found at the Hike & Backpack page.


The Mount St. Helens Institute contracted with us to lead Snowshoe Adventures this winter.  These trips began in January 2014 and continued through March 2014.  We snowshoed to June Lake, Ape Cave, Old Man Pass, Elk Rock and Mount Adam's Ice Caves/Natural Bridges.

We are proud to provide these services in our local area and hope that our recreational and educational tours and trips will enrich the participants understanding of the Mount St. Helens and Lewis River area.
