The trails in and around Stevenson, Washington, are the stuff of legend (so is Sasquatch, an occasional hiker hereabouts). With the Gifford Pinchot National Forest all around, Dog Mountain’s trails beckoning, the historical Beacon Rock trail, Fall Creek Falls and many more, your feet will be in heaven.
PLEASE NOTE: A new permit system for Dog Mountain will be launched in March 2018 for weekends during the peak use season. Beginning Saturday, March 31 and continuing until Sunday, July 1, 2018, a use permit will be required to hike the Dog Mountain trails on Saturdays and Sundays. The permit can be purchased here, www.recreation.gov, for a $1.50 non-refundable reservation fee. For full details, click here. A NW Forest Pass is also required for parking at the Dog Mountain trailhead. These can be purchased at local convenience stores, Skamania County Chamber and at the trailhead itself.
Alternative transportation is available during this same time frame by riding the Dog Mountain Shuttle, with pick-up at Skamania County Fairgrounds in Stevenson, WA. Shuttle riders will receive the permit automatically. The shuttle begins at 7:30 am with the last trip of the day leaving Dog Mountain Trailhead at 4:30 pm. The cost is $1.00 each way. Shuttle riders will receive discounts at participating Stevenson, WA businesses by showing wristbands received on the shuttle bus as proof.
