OmachePDXWinter bliss  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 29, 2009


Did this one in the snow, from the TH to the summit. I found myself nearly alone at the top, and picked a clear day for great views! The wind made things a little colder, but tucked back near the trees on the South-face I found great protection while enjoying the views.

Took the "easy" route. Enjoyed the scenery and the standard Black Butte Poter at the top.

Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2009


Summitted My Mountain with my Dad in icy conditions. Good thing I have built in crampons. My first major mountain. Not too bad for a 28 pound 4 month old, eh? Suck it, you city Pomeranians!

Did it again in the flowers 5/31/09. Again in the snow 3/14/10. I own this place!

Beautiful day and much less crowded then other times we've done this hike. We took the more difficult option up and stayed cool in the shade. Enjoyed amazing views of Mt.Hood and Helens along the way and enjoyed a snack at the top. The dog loved it!

Weighted down pack gave me a good workout. My girlfriend spanked me on this one (not literally). We took the 3.7 mile route that put us in the shade and snow, but it wasn't too bad.

Had the summit to myself...
How many time can you say that about Dog Mountain.
The snow at the summit was over 7' deep.

YEMAugspurger/Dog Loop  Sucess!


One of the best wildflower displays I have ever seen. Continuing to Augspurger was a great idea and the best way to avoid the crowds. I came back in the winter and getting to the true summit was a lot different without a trail or even footprints. I need to explore the east side of the mountain. I've seen cliffs from I-84 that are far from the trails.

mrbynumMemorial Day hike with all of Portland  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2007


Hot day, especially when starting at 11AM and still recovering from the previous nights celebrations. No shortage of people on this trail, especially at the top (rough estimate: ~200 people encountered). Following the loop which towards Augspurger resulted in significantly fewer other hikers than on the main trail. The wild flowers at the top were spectacular and worth the climb, I would recommend avoiding Dog on summer Holidays.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2007


Took the steep scenic trail from the parking lot near the gorge. Wildflowers were out in full force. Nice, challenging hike. Up and down in 3.5 hours.

LCannonUp Scenic Route, Down Auspurger  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 26, 2007


I took my two girls 15/11 up this time and we made it to the top after 3 hours. There were a TON of people here too, although didn't see so many on the way down. The parking lot was full with parking on the shoulders!! Glad I was the 6th car in the lot, early in the morning. The wildflowers are definitely worth the climb.

mradventureFirst Ascent at 6 yrs old  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2007


What a great day and a very wonderful feeling when the weather is nice and my 6 yr old son hikes all the way up and down on Dog Mtn. As usual he needed lots of motivation, but perseverance paid off when he arrived at the summit. He was amazed at the many flowers and how small the train and cars and trucks looked way down below. Since it was the weekend, there were many hikers. A little overcast, windy, and a great view. My brother and I took along our 50lb. packs to slow us down but we still had a hard time keeping up with my son. The poison oak is ready to flower and there is lots near the trail along with small lizards running in the dirt.

LCannonRoute Climbed: Auspurgur Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2007


I decided to give Dog Mountain a try from the western trail the Auspurger Loop only instead of going up the "regular" way and down Auspurger I went up the Auspurger trail first. It provided some scenery I had not enjoyed on past trips and was a bit less steep, although in places it was fairly difficult too.
At the top the clouds had rolled in and covered the summit in a white blanket, but down near the summit loop end it was clear although cloudy. The wind was blowing so hard I had a difficult time getting any decent photos and I was really glad I'd brought my hiking stick to help balance myself on the way down.

Was lucky enough to be included with Brian and Karl up Dog Tooth's Ridge. Definitely a lot funner than the regular trail!
