Did it today and actually made it to the top! So beautiful, the whole entire climb! Will defineftly being doing it multiple times over the summer!

Went out on a Wednesday morning and the place was packed. Nice views and the waterfall was a treat! Only downside was all the traffic (I assume) due to the nearby Oregon trails being closed. Will definitely go back during summer.

A beautiful, quiet snowshoe with the dog. Saw not a soul on the pine marten or June lake trail that morning. Still about 3 feet of snow at the lake, had to break my own trail from about .25 miles out. I was surprised there was not more foot traffic, but glad for it. Roads plowed / all asphalt getting to marble mountain.

Great trail for hybrid hiking/trail running. Beautiful waterfalls, wasn’t too busy today. With spring rains there were no views but it was a fun hike with elevation. Some mud pits in high traffic areas but mostly in good condition. Will definitely be repeating in the summer to check out the views.

Beautiful hike! It's a pretty intense few miles up to the summit of Hamilton Mountain with beautiful views along the way and a nice variety of scenery. It was rainy and windy today when we climbed it, so I can't say much about the view at the top, but the trail itself was great. We were surprised to find a little snow at the top, but not too much! Looking forward to trying it again on a sunny day!

Pretty easy hike! Will definitely be going again =)

Fun hike with our dogs. It was pretty crowded early Saturday morning but still worth it. Beautiful views!

Hiked 03/30/18. Since Mount Defiance is still closed from the Eagle Creek Fire, I have searched for a route to kick-start conditioning for longer trips that are part of this summer's plans. I recorded a loop system I am calling "Dog Chases Tail" which utilizes the entire trail system on Dog Mountain. It was a good work out, but I think the next time I will ascend and descend counter-clockwise to record the differences.

Rant Note:
If you take the time to bring toilet paper on a hike, please also bring a way for you to comfortably pack your garbage back out with you.

Orange peels, toilet paper, sunflower seed hulls and dog poop bags are garbage and don't belong on Dog Mountain. They belong in a trash can.

Hiked on 03/30/18 and it was the first of 3 hikes that day. I also included the small spur that goes out to the view point on the east side of the mountain. If you do this too, the trail is in much better condition if you stay to the right as you descend. This goes down to a pretty steep cliff and the view of the valley is good. Wind mountain is speaking to you, the question is are you listening? Please pack out your toilet paper waste, sunflower seed hulls, dog poop bags and orange peels. I saw all of this garbage on my hike today.

We were the only people at the bottom. Complete solitude and serenity with amazing views of the mountain. Logs from the blast still float along the edges of Spirit Lake. While the hike is steep its only a mile down and a mile up. Take down some lunch and enjoy the beauty.

awesome hike! definitely would do it again

That trail from the Power line trail is “Closed” and is private property according to letters on posts near gate.

This is an easy trail that sticks next to the Siouxon Creek the majority of the way. There are some spectacular waterfalls and deep, clear pools along the way. Loads of good camping spots all along the trail and tons of secondary trails, perfect for an overnight pack trip that won't get boring no matter how many times you do it.

A NW Forest Pass is required to park at the trail head and the access road is in fairly serious disrepair. Cars with normal clearance can make it with care, but anything that's been lowered shouldn't even try it.

This was my first really big hike. I got the permit in February and climbed in July. Couldn't have done it without poles and ankle boots (for the support). I didn't need crampons or anything at this point, but I did glissade down some snow chutes and could have used an ice pick. I used my retracted hiking poles. Be very careful if you glissade - there are some chutes that lead to nowhere or off of a cliff. Definitely wear long sleeve, light weight hiking shirts/pants. I wore a tank and a light sports hoody which I took off. My shoulders burned like crazy even with a ton of sunscreen. The snow, ash, and high altitude are the perfect recipe for a burn. Part 1 was a normal, medium-level hike. Part 2 was a rock scramble that lasted quite a long time. Bring gloves for this. Part 3 was the transition from a rock scramble to volcano ash, and Part 4 was all volcano ash. You actually fall two steps back for every step you take forward. It's like climbing a sand dune but less stable! But when you get to the top, the view is so incredible and there's enough flat land to stop for a snack or meal. Take in the beautiful peaks of other prominent mountains/volcanoes in the distance and marvel at how close the planes and helicopters are flying to you!

Easy and short hike up to the top, but surprised more people haven’t talked about the heights! I’ve hiked well over 30 trails in the Oregon/Washington area, and this is one of the few that actually made me nervous on my way to the top! There are guard rails, but it’s just wide open to the side of the rock as you ascend. Worth it for the views at the top!

A nice, easy walk, can be a little muddy.

Great walk! The gorge winds made it an epic climb up the switchbacks. Totally worth going to the top.

A nice, easy walk through the woods with some gentle changes in elevation and good viewpoints.

This trail is popular, so I would recommend hiking on weekdays. It’s the perfect amount of challenging climbs with gradual trails, throughout many different types of geography. Totally worth it for the view—though the best views are just before the summit (I would say). Wear proper hiking footwear!

This trail had some amazing views at the top. The elevation gain is about 1300 ft in 1.4 miles but the struggle is worth it. It is also pretty busy on the weekends but a perfect place for a little picnic on the summit.

I'm sure it's fantastic... I was prepared for some snow traverse on the trail, but what I didn't expect was for the snow traverse. AWD SUV, and I decided I had better turn it around on the single lane fire road with about 13 miles to go. A couple vehicles had previously passed and left a hard pack, but the snow was up to a foot in some places. No-go for this pretend SUV.

One of the best hikes in the gorge. Uphill but easy.

I have been up this trail several times. I would consider this more of a gateway trail to Mt. Adams. It offers nice views up the Cascade Creek drainage and the Salt Creek Drainage. Graveyard Camp used to be a junction for the trail to Looking Glass Lake, it seems that the US Forest Service decided that the cut across trail does not need to be there. the sign is gone and the route is not shown on newer maps. (or the maps I have). I have the benefit of owning Columbia National Forest map from 1940. It's a shame so much history is forgotten. This area used to have shelters and structures all over the area.

Great hike, I think it is definitely a new favorite. Lots of people on the portion to the waterfall, but hardly saw anyone up to the summit. Very muddy and a lot of snow, but it is well worth going through for the views.

Awesome views! The top is really not that great compare to the trek up the mountain! Try to go on any other day except for a weekend. This trail is highly trafficked.

Good workout. Great views. I did this during the summertime and it was breathtaking.

Not too difficult with big reward at the top!

great hike. awesome views
