Hood River –The Dog Mountain and Augspurger trails are temporarily closed for public safety due to the nearby Dog Falls fire. Both trails start from the Dog Mountain trailhead.  The trails have been cleared of any visitors and signage is posted at the trailhead informing visitors of the closure. 

The Dog Falls fire is located above Highway 14 near milepost 59 to the west of Dog Creek.  The 2.5-acre fire is just above the highway and visible to motorists.  

Currently, the fire is burning in steep terrain making accessibility difficult.  Helicopter drops are occurring, and local resources as well as the Entiat Hotshot crew are on the scene looking to gain access.
