WIND MOUNTAIN — It’s a steep, tough climb. But it’s no Dog Mountain.

Wind Mountain is an out-of-the-way Columbia River Gorge hike that takes a fraction of the thigh-busting endurance required to climb neighboring Dog Mountain. It might take a hardy hiker about an hour to make the 1,200-foot ascent, which is rough and rocky in sections but rewards the faithful with stellar views from a uniquely spiritual perch.
