Beyond Beacon Rock, Hamilton Mountain, and just beyond Wind Mountain lies Dog Mountain. A steep trail to the top of a beautiful peak with sweeping views of the Columbia River Gorge.
Most people hike this trail in the spring and summer. But winter can be just as enjoyable and a lot less crowded.
This trail is one of the best in the area to get you back in shape for the summer hiking season. You will climb about 2,800 feet of elevation during this 3.8 mile hike to the summit of Dog Mountain.
