Gorgeous views! A little slippery in spots but not too bad considering it was rainy. Kinda brutal, uphill alllll the way.

Don't take Berger Rd! It's terrifying!

Great introductory hike for a newbie. Not saying it was a breeze - my legs definitely felt the up and back but due to moderate length well accessible to all with the right shoes (I had tennis sneakers which were not ideal!) Anyway this walk has now got me up for more - !

Had some steep hills, a bit slippery with the wet leaves and dirt! Gorgeous trail and views!

This is a great moderate hike with really nice views. Not busy at all, although we did see a couple people on the hike.
The last turn onto Indian race track (going counter-clockwise) was a little difficult to see at first, so keep your eye out.

Extremely steep most of the way up but the views at the top are worth it! Didn’t see anyone else on the trail and it was a beautiful clear day.

Beautiful view at the top and short hike.

Pretty forest hike with expansive views from Red Mountain. Better hiked as an out and back as the descent on the road is boring (but quick). Not too hard except for the final few hundred feet which is steep.

Last 4 miles in were rough, but we did it in a Honda Civic. As long as you can maneuver well in your car you should be fine. The hike itself was pretty, the creek was pretty dried up. Plenty of falls with beautiful pools you can swim in. Tons of camping all over the place. You need a recreation pass, America the Beautiful or NW forest pass cover it.

Challenging for this beginner but well worth it. Such a breathtaking view!

The hike was indeed difficult but also beautiful! Just ask our two huskies who are both super tuckered out. I was very surprised by the amount of poison oak on the sides of the trail. Hoping we avoided it well enough. We are hoping to come back in the spring for the wild flowers!

Short but steep. Incredible views at the top and very windy. Rocky at times

Awesome trail! Beautiful views. Steep enough to be a decent workout. Be careful at the top, I heard some rattlesnakes nesting in the rocks!

Trail in decent shape, dusty in mid-August. Trail is unrelentingly uphill, but beautiful at the top. Nice views of the river and Dog Mountain. The sacred nature of the space at the top was a nice surprise to me and made it more memorable than it might have otherwise been.

Busy on the wrong day, dead on the right.

Such a nice hike, really love this one.

Got there around 6 am and was the only person in the lot so I did get to enjoy the hike without seeing anyone else which was cool. However! This hike is pretty intense but for what feels like no payoff. For almost all of the hike you’re in a basic forest setting and that’s all you see. You’re teased with one view of the gorge before you head back into the forest and do about 1.5 more miles before the view opens up again. In my opinion there are hikes very close to here with MUCH better views that are less crowded, still a workout, and more rewarding.

Excellent hike! The trail was very well maintained and I had no issues with bugs at all. The creek was cold but felt so good on my feet after a long day.

The only negative I have to say is, there were SOOO many people camping. Wow.

We hiked Wind mountain while vacationing in Stevenson, Wa. We started out near sunset and were rewarded with breathtaking views of the gorge. We chose to do wind mountain as a prep for our big hike the next day (dog mountain) and were surprised by how much we enjoyed it. I would do it again for the amazing views. Short and sweet with a glorious view makes this hike a must do!

Chose the “more difficult” route, aka the long loop. This route had almost zero switchbacks and was a constant steep incline in a beautiful wooded area. Definitely a quad burner. It was 95 degrees today, so the tree coverage was greatly appreciated. I’d love to see this hike in spring, when the wildflowers are freshly bloomed.

We love it! Great hike, not as populated which is great.

Too many people but still a decent hike. Gorgeous weather! Ultra clear and cold stream water but also refreshing.

I have hiked this trail many times over the years and it never gets old. The grade is gradual so the nine mile hike to Chinook Falls and back wasn't difficult. The parking lot was almost full but the trail didn't feel crowded. Love all the beautiful waterfalls. The road has gotten much worse. I made it in my Ford Focus with no problems, but you really have to watch where you are going.

We really like this trail because we can take people of any skill level. The grandkids love this one. Very scenic and most of the hike is in the shade. Have taken a dip a couple of times in one of the pools. This water is cold. I’ve also been with a group that mountain biked this trail. We had a couple of riders that weren’t very skilled at biking and they found the trail a little narrow but a beautiful ride.

Beautiful hike. A steep down to start, but not too bad, and so worth it. Take a dip at one of the pools toward the end.

It was a very easy trail to find and follow! The views were magnificent!

Beautiful hike on a hot day because you’re almost entirely in shade. The forest was lovely as was the crystal clear creek the trail followed. Lovely waterfalls and not too many people on the trail. We took our dog on a leash and he loved it. Take plenty of water and a snack. It’s a nice easy hike on a well maintained trail.

Hiked 192 with my walking club on Saturday. We went to the end of the trail and at the top we connected with the 132 Observation Peak trail & hiked down the mountain.... overall it was 18.23 miles & 3,444 elevation according to my fitbit. This is definitely a hard trail up & it looked like most hikers do this loop over a weekend. Was pretty moderate up till the 5 mile mark when you start climbing up the mountain on switchbacks. Most of us did great, I struggled on the incline but made the top. There were wild blueberries & orchids along the way & quite a few log bridges to cross over the creek. It’s beautiful & the waterfall platform was breathtaking.

Went early on Friday July 6th, only one other car at TH. Challenging hike to Dog Mtn, wildflowers drying out but views gorgeous. My intention was to cross over to Augspurger. Dropped down into valley trail, very cool and well maintained. Took Dog / Augspurger trail split and had to turn back after about 1/4 mi. Trail to Augspurger extremely overgrown right now...lost the trail completely. Hike down Augspurger side of trail back to parking lot was easy, several people hiking up this route. Lot was almost full at this time. Definitely good idea to get there early

Great trail, great views of the Columbia River gorge, Mt Saint Helens and Mt Adams. Native historical site at the top. One of my favorite hikes.
