Situated just an hour drive from Portland, this is a popular hike that offers views of Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and the Columbia River Gorge. It's best to get here early on a warm weekend, as the parking area gets quite full. Visitors here will find waterfalls, rivers, wildflowers and striking mountains here. $10 parking fee for day hikes.Show more

A great way to do Dog Mountain (a little longer, but worth it). The trail is in fantastic condition. The most spectacular wildflower meadows of the Columbia Gorge drape the alp-like slopes of Dog Mountain, north of the Columbia River in Washington. in May and June these hills are alive yellow balsamrot, red paintbrush and blue lupine. Even flowerless seasons provide breathtaking views of the Columbia Gorge. Such beauty has made the steep climb popular, but with three trails to the top, you can choose your route. Permits are required on Saturdays & Sundays March 31 - July 1 for each individual hiker. Permits are not available at the trailhead but can be purchased online. You can also save the parking challenge and take the shuttle from Skamania County Fairgrounds on the weekends for $2.00 and this includes your day pass to hike. $5/vehicle/day at Dog Mountain TrailheadShow more

The views are incredible on this hike on a clear day you can see Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson to the south, Mount St Helens and Mt. Rainier to the north and Mt. Adams to the northeast. This is a shorter hike but you do get a decent uphill climb and the views far exceed the effort to get to the top. There are lots of trails that lead up to Three Corner rock but this is the easiest. You do have to be careful when hiking this to make sure you turn off the PCT onto the trail that leads to 3 Corner Rock or you could be hiking much further than planned. Fall is a great time of year to do this hike. Some of the foliage was turning red and the views were incredible. If you visit in spring you will encounter lots of snow!Show more

This is a great backpacking loop for beginners. Starting at the Thomas Lake Trailhead, you'll hike up to Thomas Lake. Great views of St. Helens behind you, and the huckleberries were just beginning to ripen down this low. Thomas Lake is stocked with rainbow and brook trout. Continue on until you reach Blue Lake, which is on the PCT. Blue Lake has a very strong population of Western Slope Cutthroat. Spend the night at Blue Lake, then take the PCT to Lemei Lake Trail, then Indian Heaven Trail to Deep Lake. Deep Lake has a good view of Mt. Adams, and a strong population of Western Slope Cutthroat. Spend the night at Deep Lake, then backtrack down Indian Heaven Trail to the PCT, then Elk Lake Trail back to Elk Lake. Elk Lake has a few fish, but Bear Lake has a much stronger population of Western Slope Cutthroat. From Elk Lake proceed back down Elk Lake Trail to a lesser traveled, unnamed trail (which parallels the PCT to the west) back to the Thomas Lake Trail to the trailhead. During August, this trail is amazing - the huckleberries are just beginning to ripen, the wildflowers are still going, and the mosquito levels are dropping (but still needed plenty of deet). The section of this route between Bear Lake and Rock Lake is an old trail that was decommissioned decades ago due to the sensitivity of the environment that it crosses. It is unmarked, has not been maintained in decades, and comes and goes in places. Please be prepared for cross country-esque travel, route-finding, and be extra conscious when traveling through this beautiful and sensitive environment.Show more
