After hiking Dog Mountain many times, I finally visited Augspurger. The views are wonderful, though the wildflowers were a bit underwhelming. The trail appeared to have been maintained just beyond the Dog Mountain Trail junction, but that might have been my imagination. I would do this hike again.
Finally got around to doing this one on a gloomy June morning. I decided to try to run up it to save some time and see what kind of shape I was in. Well, running uphill doesn't last too long, the flat parts were fine. Some neat open ridges and meadows on this one kept the more than 12 miles from being boring. Lots of up and down too, very good workout. I ran as much as I could on the way up and the whole way back. Still took too long taking photos and think it was like 5 hours 15 minutes round trip in the blustery rain.
