Fabulous! Hiking the loop around the park is challenging. Misery trail is very well named but if you take your time it's well worth it. 360 degree views of central Oregon. well worth it!

This state park is not too far from Mt Bachelor ski resort. Nice option for others not going to ski.

Smith Rock has views that can be enjoyed by everyone. The hikes are fun but a little challenging. Bring a camera and picnic lunch!

We love to go to Smith Rock, and we always bring our out of town friends to see it. We love to hike there, and are always amazed by the natural beauty of the park.

The 6+ mile loop hiking up Misery Ridge goes very steep at the beginning. A walking stick, or two, is very helpful on this climb. Good hiking shoes are essential. The trail is well marked, maintained and traveled. We went on a Saturday and had...More

We had a blast. The scenery is breathtaking, especially considering how close this is to Redmond. We spent the whole day on the trails which were very well maintained and marked.
