Fun hike with nice views of the gorge. Did as a hike to stretch our legs before a Mt. Hood attempt.

Great hike on a really nice day. Lots of atmospheric haze in the Gorge and an amazing sunset.

I'd climbed this as early as the late 70's but failed to log it. Done it about 12 times over the years and it's always a great little hike. Saw a couple of baby rattlesnakes on the trail on the west side last year.

This is a great hike! Have done it four times (always with our dog) in winter and early spring. Will make it out there sometime in late spring to check out the wild flower displays.

Soup

I was on the trail by 5:30 am to beat the heat and huffed on up a nice and quiet trail. The wildflowers looked like they were sufferin' from our coming summer sun; about a quarter were burned out, but the three-fourths remaining were great! There were clear skies like crazy; Hood, Adams, and St. Helens all showed up.



When I was eating breakfast up top, two deer crossed the meadow not more then 25 feet away from me. On my decent, I walked right up on a rattle snake eating his own chipmunk breakfast. I do believe that there is nothing like the sound of that rattle!

December, 2002 - Hiked in the wind and rain and had no view. could barely see Wind Mountain.

April, 2004 - Hiked on a windy and suny day and had great views of the whitecaps on the columbia, Mt defiance, the top of Hood, Mt St Helens, and down the gorge. Also a lot of wildflowers in bloom. took about an hour and half to the top. very windy and pretty crowded. I would hate to see it on a weekend.

May, 2004 - I did this to wrap up a 4 summit day. It was preceded by Lookout Mountain, Bald Butte, and Mount Defiance. I saw quite a few people headed down as i was going up. Pretty cloudy, but i still had decent views of Hood, Defiance, and the Gorge. It was an appropriate finale to my day since it got dark on the way down and then it started to lightning. I saw a lot of flashes for the final mile or so, but didn't start hearing thunder until i was back to my truck and safe.

December 2006 - hiked up to a snow covered mostly viewless summit.

March 29, 2007 - Great hike with Jen and Dosha on a perfect day. Could see St Helens, Adams, and part of Hood along with the other gorge peaks. Even found the geocache at the top just for fun! had burgers and beer in Hood River before heading back to OC.

This is always a great hike - and I was surprised by how many wildflowers were already in bloom. I had intended on doing the Augsberger Mtn hike, but after realizing that I didn't have enough time for the 15-mile loop I cut over to Dog Mountain instead. Great views and unusually warm weather - definitely didn't feel like April!!

This was my first time doing this hike--I can see why it is so popular. The views were incredible. (See Brian Jenkins' log). I definitely plan to do this hike many more times.--Natasha

Set off around 3pm with running shoes. Made summit Via Scenic Route in 1 hour 8 min. Back Down to the car in another 36 minutes. As if my brother and I weren't beat enough we scrambled up beacon rock immediately following. Shooting for 50 min to the top this year.

theplugger

Up here in Twisp we were getting Spring Fever, since the snow hasn't melted out enough for access to our local trails. So we made a trip down to the Columbia River Gorge for some conditioning hikes. Got to the top of Dog Mtn but didn't do the additional Augsberger Mtn. Great views. No sun, but then again, no rain. So it was a great day.

Nice training run. Good scenery. I was weathered off all of my more serious aspirations my second trip out west in 02, so I ran up this thing to relieve my frustration... But thats part of it.

Classic Columbia River Gorge hike. Climbed it last Jan., and then twice in July. Tends to be quite crowded in the summer, so I would recommend leaving early. But, as my father likes to say "I've never had a bad day on this mountain".

Great conditioner and a chance to get out of the house and hike with great friends (the Boltons). Its a 160 mile drive from Kennewick but well worth it considering the company I had on this hike. We did the complete loop and met a fellow SP'er on the summit (David Jordan).


Some snow on the trail and a great view of the gorge on this rather non sunny day. At least it didn't rain.

This isn't just for plant lovers. It's a great training hike, and there are some interesting basalt formations passed on the way.

Bob BoltonRoute Climbed: All Date Climbed: At least once per year for many years  Sucess!

Bob Bolton

This hike is a standard springtime conditioner for me. I like it best in May while the flowers are at their peak. Because the trail is on a south-facing slope I usually avoid it in summer - too hot! I usually do the Scenic Route up and the Augspurger trail down, which makes a nice loop hike.

This mountain can be very crowded on weekends. Great views of Hood River, Mt. Defiance, and Mt. Adams. My best time is 1 hr 9 min up, 30 min down. This is the best trail in the Gorge to do laps on for training as it is one of the steepest on average.
