During historical eruptions of Mount St. Helens, pyroclastic flows have originated from collapsing eruption columns and from gravitational or explosive disruption of growing lava domes.Driven by gravity, pyroclastic flows seek topographically low areas and can travel down valleys at high velocities beyond the flanks of the volcano.

This fallout, mixed with magma, mud, and steam, sent additional pyroclastic flows speeding down St. Helens' flanks. Later, slower flows came directly from the new north-facing crater and consisted of glowing pumice bombs and very hot pumiceous ash. ... "Eruption of Mount St. Helens".

The Worm Flows Route is considered the standard winter route on Mount St. Helens, as it is the most direct route to the summit. The route gains about 5,700 feet (1,700 m) in elevation over about 6 miles (10 km) from trailhead to summit but does not demand the technical climbing that some other Cascade peaks like Mount Rainier do.

The Swift Creek fan, composed of pyroclastic flows and lahars, buried Cougar-age deposits on the south flank of Mount St. Helens. The Crescent fan consists of pyroclastic flows at least 180 m (600 ft) thick on the west flank of the volcano, which were derived from the Crescent lava dome.

Pyroclastic flows originated in both ways at Mount St. Helens on May 18, but flows of mappable volume were of the latter type. The flows were entirely restricted to a small fan-shaped zone that flares northward from the summit crater.
