Truman Trail is 6.5 miles long, receives medium use and features volcanic landscapes and high country views.

The Truman Trail begins at the Windy Ridge Trailhead on Forest Road 99. It descends in elevation, following an old road bed. The trail then traverses the pumice plain and it is located by wooden post route markers. It then ascends in elevation to its junction with Boundary Trail #1. The trail traverses the pyroclastic flow and debris avalanche deposits north of the crater of Mount St. Helens. New plant life is returning to the area as visitors can discover the effects which the eruption had upon this landscape.

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, the Independence Pass Trailhead and the Windy Ridge Viewpoint to the trailhead (called Windy Ridge Trailhead).
