Popular difficult climb in the eastern Columbia River Gorge. The summit meadow area features views of Mount Saint Helens, Mount Adams and the tip of Mount Hood peaking over Mount Defiance. Dog Mountain is famous for its abundant wildflowers in springtime, but it is a magnificent summit year round.

The actual summit is forested and viewless. A spur trail leads in here from the meadow.
