Main trail to Dog Mtn, then over on loop rte to Augsburger trail. Best part was last bit to Dog Mtn and then over for first half of the walk to Ausberger trail. Very open, great views and wildflowers. So good I just retraced my steps back
Spectacular wildflowers near and to the intersection with Hardy Ridge Trail and Phlox Pt trail and then to Phlox pt. Terrific views at Hamilton Saddle. Total distance excluding the drive to Skamania was abt 12 miles.
The part that is the south loop is among the best hiking half miles in area. Great views of Baldy and valley
