A good climbing trail to access Surveyor's Ridge Trail with excellent views of Mt. Hood.

Description

The first couple of steps up Dog River seem easy enough, but then you hit a couple of switchbacks and wonder what the heck youre doing. Dont worry, the trail soon levels out again into a mellow, rolling climb above the namesake creek. The side slopes are thick with wildflowers in the spring, but keep your eyes on the narrow tread.

Youll hopefully be warmed up by the time you cross a small bridge because then the climbing starts in earnest. Up, up, and away! The last 0.8 miles are made up of a modest descent through massive fir and pine trees signals the transition to upper Zig Zag.

Be aware that this trail is shared with mountain bikers and horseback riders. Stay alert to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
