This is a relatively easy hike...not too strenuous. The parking lot for the trailhead is right on the scenic highway. Because there were no real "wow" moments, I would suggest going to the visitor center and observatory first to get all of your Mt. St. Helens info, and then do the hike if you have time/daylight.
