Permits for weekend Dog Mountain hikes to be required

Starting in a few weeks, if you want to hike Dog Mountain, you'll need to buy a permit.

All weekend hikers will have to buy a $1 to $2 permit from March 31 through July 1.

The permits are an attempt to thin out crowds on the popular trail.

The Forest Service is also trying to encourage people to take the shuttle bus from nearby Stevenson, Washington because there's not a lot of parking.
