Dog Mountain Trail System Permits Are Available!
Dog Mountain is arguably one of the most popular (if not the most) hikes in the Columbia River Gorge. This beautiful hike is especially busy in the spring due to its springtime wildflower blooms and stunning views! Hikers enjoy panoramic views of the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood to the south.
Because of its popularity, the busy months (April 23 – June 12) require a permit which went on sale March 1st. Get your permit here! Note: A permit is also required on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2022. There is a free shuttle to and from Dog Mountain from the Skamania County fairgrounds each weekend! Hop on the free shuttle and head to Dog Mountain!
