To Do > Hike Dog Mountain (kinda)

by Rainbow Bobbins

Dog Mountain wildflowers

Geez. Someday I will get to the top. Once again I under estimated the time it would take to get to the top of Dog Mountain. I made it halfway up and had to come back down in time to watch The Know play softball back in PDX. If you are looking for solitude this is not the hike. Tons ‘o people are heading up this mountain for the wildflowers and panoramic views of the gorge. I like it for the butt-sculpting steepness – this hike is a great workout. Click HERE for trail description, reviews and directions. Next week I return to summit.

Looking East toward Hood River - lovely flowers

Along the trail - a relatively flat part
