Perhaps the loneliest mountain accessible by trail on the Washington side of the gorge—ironic too, due to its easy access right off State Route 14 and its close proximity to Dog Mountain, one of the most popular peaks in the gorge. The views from augspurger are also sprawling and plentiful— some of the best in the gorge. Likewise for wildflowers. And you’ll get it all to yourself. So what’s the scoop? The way is long, with a lot of elevation and a section of encroaching greenery that scares people away. But the brush is ephemeral and the trail is in excellent shape—what are you waiting for?
