Recommended Map

Well maintained trail, borders on 'hard' difficulty at times being rather steep. No snow today.
My hike said it was 5.8 miles, which is significantly longer than the 4 that I anticipated. Granted, I took the Humbug viewpoint detour but that's only .4 round trip. Not sure how I got an extra mile. But all around very satisfying and I'm now very exhausted:

Great views on top.

Hiked 4/20/18...sunny day, a few wildflowers out but the full wildflower bloom is probably a few weeks out. Route: up Dog Mountain Trail, down Augspurger and clocked about 10 miles total.

Beautiful hidden hike. Took longer than I thought to get to the trailhead but was totally worth it! Good hike if you’re headed to the beach

The trail was great! It was muddy like other people said but we live where we live and it didn’t hinder the hike at all. No obstacles on trail and well maintained. So glad this beauty is open! If you want the solitude then take the upper falls hike loop. I had it all to myself this morning and I started late.

This trail is another awesome hidden gem. The trail itself is fairly easy to moderate at points, as it had some downed trees and bush across the path. I hiked the weekend of the windstorm in April 2018. The suspension bridge was great, I was expecting more movement, but it only had slight bobbing with only me on it. Very sturdy and well built, with a perfect view of the gorge and falls below. Keep going down the trail after crossing, as it switches back down towards the falls for a front row view. Very powerful, and pools were filled and raging at this time of year. Hike back is all up hill, but not bad at all. I had the place to myself early, but passed many people coming down on my way back up.

Fantastic hike! Took about an hour & 45 to get up and a little less than an hour to come back down. Gorgeous views! I brought a small dog and he did fine but was very tired out by the end.

I had a perfect day for hiking. Had A skiff of snow the night before, but the sun came out and the view was incredible.

Easy out and back trail. Was surprisingly busy for a middle of the week... was spring break for some, just not Oregon. Good views. Well maintained.

When reaching the trailhead you have the option of hard or harder, I took the hard path. Awesome hike in spring, lots of flowers blooming and at least when I went the winds were really tame. It’s a quad burner for sure with the incline and maybe not the best if you have any knee issues. Views are awesome, great view of the Oregon side of the gorge. Great for people with energetic dogs that feed off off exercise. All in all a great hike that left me a little sore a couple days after. Be aware that due to last year’s fires, many gorge trails are still closed making hike options limited, might want to get up early.

Nice hike. Kids liked the falls. Good workout. Really far out while driving. You think maybe you've missed it. Keep going. Worth the drive.

Easy hike. Definitely worth seeing the bridge and falls. Plan to do again soon.

Did this April second and the flowers are just starting to pop up in some places but nothing crazy yet. Will be returning to repeat this hike in about a month to see all the flowers.

SUPER easy hike! Got there faster than I was expecting and even got to stand at the base of the falls! Definitely one I’ll be revisiting soon!

Trail is technically closed right now due to wildfire damage. However, trail is clear of debris and is an easy beautiful hike to the waterfall.

Beautiful hike and stunning waterfall.

Amazing place absolutely love it!

Took the dog mountain shuttle from Skamania Fairgrounds parking lot on Rock Creek Drive. I got the first shuttle out at 730 am. Ride to the trailhead was about 15 min. When u pay your $2 for the shuttle your wristband serves as a hiking permit. When we got there there were several park rangers strictly enforcing the new permit rules. Many were turned away.
I took the “more difficult” segment of dog mountain trail up and Augsberger trail down. Took me 3.5 hrs. I had solitude most of the time with the exception of the top.
Great views of Hood and St. Helens. There were some small yellow flowers up at the top and the lower trees were just starting to bloom. Will have to come back when the wildflowers are in full swing. Beautiful moss laden Forest for most of the hike.

Very fun short hike w great views! We missed the North loop which would have made it a bit longer. But crowded on a Sunny weekend and hard to find a parking space. There is a nice side trip- a covered bridge on bear creek road if u go that way instead of taking 101.

My husband and I loved this hike. There are two waterfalls and a well maintained trail. I used my trekking poles for stability in the muddy areas and for grip on the steeper parts. I’m pretty heavy and not in great shape, so I took several quick breaks, but it was very doable and I’m looking forward to going back again soon.

Visited mid-March. Sunny but cold. Most other trails were closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire. Muddy and some sections are steep. Fairly crowded. Hiked with 10yo and 4yo who completed the loop without complaining. Passed a few folks stopping to catch their breath. Upper and lower falls are beautiful. You'll get a little wet at the bottom of the upper falls. Only complaint is the lack of trail markers. Lots of folks were blazing their own.

This was my first hike, and one of the best simple ones I have ever done. Make sure to stop at the brewery on your way out!

Took the Red Meadow trail from the bottom of the parking lot. Spectacular little less traveled, unpacked connector to the Trillium Lake road. Main trail was well packed and easily traveled without snowshoes. Gorgeous easy trail!

Total distance from parking lot to and back was about 5 miles. Distance listed is for the Lake Loop only so be prepared for double depending on route. What we walked was the Lake road. The trail loop indicated in this file is the low trail at the lake's edge.

3/24 Latourell Falls, beautiful!
Crowded, which I didn't like. However, because it was so muddy most people didn't go far..

Great views, lots of fun-but suuuuper muddy right now

Incredible! But, busy.

Great hike.... cable suspension bridge and view of fall were awesome
