Dixie Mountain Delight Woods, Trails, and Field

**ALL PROFITS ARE DONATED TO LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTERS (read more at the bottom)*** Note: Rocky Point Road is closed from Highway 30 to Skyline. Dixie Mountain Delight is a unique Sniffspot! It's a 10-acre property with several trails through rustic wooded areas and a large Field of Dreams (with an overlook) to enjoy. You (human) will get a pretty decent walk in along with your dog! Disappear into the woods with your doggo pack and explore the property. The main trail through the woods is a little over a quarter mile long, and there is plenty to sniff and explore along the trail. It is a hike with some slight inclines, but nothing very strenuous. The woods are very quiet and serene, but they are also robust and eagerly await your adventures! We recommend starting on the main trail that begins behind the barn and then either exploring more trails on the way to the field, or just heading directly to the field for wide-open fun. The Field of Dreams has tall grass with a mowed perimeter to easily walk around. Deer visit our field regularly, so hopefully, your pack will find some interesting things to sniff. There is a sitting area on the field for you to rest while your pack runs like the wind, explores, fetches, or simply enjoys the day. There are several other small, interesting trails to explore and reconnect with nature. Just follow the map and signs. Make sure you snap a pic by the Guard Shack and read its history. Inside the shack are some interesting feathers to smell. All trails are marked. We have several dogs that have a small fenced yard by the house, however, we keep the dogs inside when we have Sniffspot visitors. Occasionally, you might hear them bark when visiting, but generally, they are tucked away and occupied when we have Sniffspot guests. We are working on a few projects around the property, mostly on the house to include rebuilding the deck. You may occasionally see us up at the house working on one project or another, but we are respectful of your privacy. Located atop Dixie Mountain, the drive up is filled with snatches of lovely views of the surrounding mountains and Portland (weather dependent). The view is especially gorgeous if you mosey up from Highway 30. There certainly is a lot to do, see, and smell on Dixie Mountain! We hope you will come see us. ************************************************** In August of 2023, we were in southern Alabama visiting our son who is in the US Army. He found two abandoned puppies at a deserted boat ramp and after trying to find them homes for two weeks, our only options were to turn them into a kill shelter or bring them home to Oregon. After bringing home these two abandoned puppies from Alabama, where there is a definite crisis facing abandoned animals and a shortage of space at no-kill shelters, we felt a calling to help our no-kill shelters here in Oregon. I feel strongly about supporting our local shelters and spreading the donations around. All profits from my Sniffspot are donated to local shelters, which rotate. So far we have donated to Family Dog New Life Shelter and Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter. You are helping by visiting Dixie Mountain Delight! Thank you!

Wonderful location. My dogs loved it! Not for the non-hiker. Great hike down to creek, but you then need to come back up. Benches to r

Trails always well maintained, lots of wood chips added during our visit today. The hills and forest sniffs really tire out my dog!

Our dogs had so much fun here. Definitely muddy and steep so was happy we wore boots. would avoid red “Greek” trail if you have any mobility issues. We loved all 3 trails. Great upkeep. Thank you for sharing your property with us!

This is now one of our top Sniffspots in the area. Exactly as described and well maintained trails. The view of Mt. St. Helens was breathtaking! My Great Dane, Zephary, is still working on his recall, and this was a great place to train/practice. He had a blast and exhausted a bunch of energy. We will definitely be back again.

Our second time here! A little muddy on those hills. But that’s okay, we love our cardio and It’s winter in the PNW. Thanks for having us and helping us get some energy out.

Secluded and surprisingly pretty! With a viewpoint bench and a little creek, this spot is a treat for both humans and dogs.

Magical and serene. I recommend for any dogs who are anxious and have reactive behaviors. Amazing getaway for some much needed decompression. The best spot ❤️

This location was everything we could have asked for and more. My dogs loved having all the space to run, sniff, and explore. Rainy season meant a lot of mud but the host has done a great job putting out sawdust and logs to make walking through the mud easier and safer

Such good trails. I rented this for 1.5 hours. Next time I think 1 hour will be plenty to do all the trails. But my pups are tired now.

Great spot, mud and all, but every place is muddy right now! My dog and I explored the three trails and appreciated that they were well marked and cleared of tree debris. The woods are lovely and there are a couple of sitting/viewing areas. Thanks for making this nice spot available.

Great sniff spot! I was thrilled to find a spot that was fairly close in to the city, but was in nature. We had a great time exploring the trails. It was the perfect quiet spot for my reactive doggie to get to explore and have fun. We would love to return!

Thank you for sharing your amazing place with us. I don’t we had ever seen our dog ever have so much fun. I need an extra star to rate this spot. Thanks again!

2nd visit and explored each of three trails. One runs along the creek and has a switchback that connects up to the second trail so you could make a loop out of it. The other one goes up along the house and into a forest and also has a loop.  The trails are very well marked with pink tape and white tape that shows when you are reaching the out of bounds.  While the owners do a very nice job applying bark chips along the trails, expect some mud and wear your boots and bring a towel to wipe your dogs!!  My dogs love this area and we got some good exercise in a half an hours time.   Oh, and great parking location!  we will definitely be back!

While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, inattentive owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than a city or county park. With a Sniffspot off-leash area all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. Our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy, but it is also important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps.
