Trail Description Driving DirectionsStarting at the Dog Mountain Trailhead, this hike is extremely strenuous but rewards those who endure the climb and descent. Spring brings out a huge wildflower show with incredible views. After climbing 2.8 miles, you will come to the junction for the Dog Mountain Trail. Keep straight ahead and descend on the Augspurger Mountain trail into a small valley before joining an old roadbed. Keep straight and continue to follow the roadbed until you come to a bend in the trail, taking you into the forest. Follow the trail as it curves to the west and up the side of the ridge, then turns back to the right and into an open area. The trail will get steeper and wander in and out of the forest until you get to the highest ridge and up to the top of Augspurger Mountain.
