The most spectacular hike on the Washington side of the Columbia gorge, Dog Mountain offers much to bark about. Straddling the transition zone between swirling clouds and golden rays of sunshine, Dog affords a beautiful perspective of the multifaceted gorge. The view straight down to the river and over the cone of Wind Mountain is beyond breathtaking. And the flowers! you’ll find the most stunning floral show sprawled across the sun-kissed meadows of this riverside peak. But there’s a hitch. The way is steep making this a dog of a hike. And its popularity means you’re never far from the pack.
