Oregon is so beautiful and no exception here. It's a must to see but please be careful as it is hot in the summer and our state can't take any more fires, so be smart and respect our treasures!!

The hike down into and along the river valley is beautiful. A great area for rock climbers or just trail hikers. The pleasant sounds of the river flowing is therapeutic and the sun struck if the rock faces is beautiful. We were in the Bend...More

This is a geological wonderland that has lots of trails for various fitness levels. The visuals are truly impressive and one truly gets a sense of the timelessness of nature. Definitely a destination for anyone who visits Central Oregon.

Many hike options from easy to very strenuous. Interesting geological features, nice river trail, tough hike over Misery Ridge with big views from the top. A number of picnic tables with nice views. Clean primary restroom and several pit toilets throughout. On a good day...More

There is only one entrance/exit to this state park from Hwy 97. I would recommend to you to stop at the first parking lot in the park. From there leads a easy flat trail that takes you around the southern edge of the steep... More
