Coldwater Trail receives low use and features volcanic landscapes and high country views.

Coldwater Trail heads west from Boundary Trail #1 through a saddle to where it traverses to overlook standing-dead and blown-down trees and views of construction activities. It then descends to Coldwater Creek where it crosses via a bridge and connects to Lakes Trail #211. From the trail are spectacular views of Mount St. Helens, Johnston Ridge, Coldwater Lake and Coldwater Peak. In addition, high country views of Mt. Whittier and Minnie Peak grace this trail.

Directions: From Iron Creek, Follow Forest Route 25 south for approximately five miles to Forest Route 99. Follow 99 southwest past Miner's Car Interpretive Site, to Primary Forest Route 26. Follow 26 north to the Norway Pass trailhead. Take the Boundary Trail #1 west (approximately 5-6 miles) to Coldwater Trail.
