Parking Pass/Entry Fee


In spring, due to the popularity of this trail, a permit is required for each person hiking the trails on Augspurger or Dog Mountain on weekends. Note that parking is limited at the trailhead. The spring hiking permits are required in addition to a parking pass. Having a hiking permit does not ensure a parking spot.

The Augspurger Mountain Trail offers a great loop option to the popular Dog Mountain Trail. The two trails share the same trailhead, but the Augspurger trail heads off to the west. The way is more gentle, and a 1.5 mile connector trail links the two together. Along the way, enjoy bouncy balsamroot blooms in May and fantastic views of the Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood and more all year round.

Getting There

This is a popular trail, and the small trailhead can become quite crowded. To save time, consider taking a shuttle from nearby Stevenson, or visit during the week or early in the day for a better chance at a parking spot.

Driving Directions

From Vancouver drive east on State Highway 14, alongside the Columbia River, to just past milepost 53. The trailhead is on north side of State Highway 14. (Driving time from Vancouver is approximately 1 hour.)

Please do not park on Highway 14; high speed traffic comes both ways on this highway.
