Enjoy a view of Spirit Lake with its still-floating raft of logs deposited during the 1980 eruption. An interpretive display shares the magic of the forest and lake, pre-eruption. Depart on the steep, one-mile Harmony Trail #224 that leads to the lakeshore. Harmony Falls is not visible. The site was submerged by the May 18, 1980 landslide which slammed into Spirit Lake, causing a 200-foot rise in lake level.
