  • Apr 18, 2018 - Dog Mountain Loop: Weekend hikers will need to obtain a new permit to hike Dog Mountain trail through July 1. Learn more. And under all circumstances, it is illegal to park on the shoulder of Hwy 14, says the Washington State Patrol: The shoulder is intended for temporary situations such as emergences and drop-offs. 
  • Feb 1, 2018 - Cape Horn Loop: The 1.5-mile road section of this loop hike is on a county road.
    Please walk single-file and be aware of vehicle as there are blind corners. Walk on the side of the road as you normally would; remember this section is not a trail even though it’s part of the hike. Also, please be mindful of local residents and park in designated parking areas. If you park along Cape Horn Road, make sure not to do it in front of a gate, driveway, or private entrance.
     
    From Feb. 1-July 15, the lower section of the Cape Horn trail has a seasonal closure for nesting peregrine falcons. The closed section is located between a point about a half-mile southwest of the west pedestrian underpass/tunnel at SR-14 and the bottom of Cape Horn Rd. Failure to respect the closure can result in as much as a $5,000 fine, and future use of the trail is dependent on hikers respecting this closure. 

    This is not a dog-friendly trail because of steep cliffs. Two dogs have died here recently so please keep your dog at home.
