Trails Open In Dog Falls Fire Area

The Forest Service says a pair of Columbia River Gorge trails closed since Monday have reopened as crews battle a nearby wildfire.  The Dog Mountain and Augspurger trails had been closed since Monday due to the nearby Dog Falls fire, burning above state Highway 14 about 50 miles east of Vancouver.  Officials announced the trails’ reopening early today.  The Forest Service says 3.5-acre fire is now 70 percent contained.  Difficult terrain and high winds have made fighting the fire located west of Dog Creek a challenge.
