A 1-mile loop trail to the summit provides easy access through flowered hillsides and offers an incredible view of the western portion of the Columbia River Gorge You can also get superb views along the eastern fork of the trail, without having to climb all the way to the summit.
The northern route climbs steeply for 2.5 miles through a dense forest to the lookout site. The trail intersects the loop trail to the summit of Dog Mountain.
Directions: Take I-84 eastbound approximately 40 miles to Cascade Locks. Take exit 44, and cross the Bridge of the Gods to the Washington side of the river. Remember that the toll to cross the bridge is $1.00 per car each way. After crossing the bridge, turn right on SR-14 for 12 miles. Between mileposts 53 and 54, there will be a sign on the left side of the road reading "Dog Mountain Trailhead", set in a large turnout area. Just look for lots of cars, and you'll find it easily. Make sure you have a Northwest Forest Pass to park at the trailhead.
