2017Oregon Map

I am 50 years old had a heart attack in June of 2017. And we made it up and thru the whole trail. Don’t kid yourself, it’s difficult but beautiful. It was awsome

Beautiful views and great workout!

Amazing...pick a blue sky-day and enjoy the vulcanic history! Loved it

What a great hike to start 2018. Did this mid February and very unseasonably warm temps in the upper 60's. A fairly easy out and back trek. Great views. Even saw Twin Pillars to the North. A beautiful hike in the Ochocos

My all time favorite hike. But it has gotten so crowded in recent years. I visited here just weeks before the fire closed it in 2017.

Very sad. But can’t wait for it to reopen.

Fantastic hike, gorgeous in every way, waterfalls, lush greenery, flowers, mushrooms, moss, all that's missing are the little fairies :) Took us about 5-6 hrs, just what we needed.

Really neat trail, perfect quick hike with an amazing view. There are some fun boulders to climb on if you're feeling adventurous at the pillar.

little slick

Beautiful, short hike over packed snow. Family friendly and definitely worth it. Expect snow until mid March.

easy to get to for a quick and easy walk. the falls are a nice place for a quick rest before turning around. looked like the trail went on although we didn't go past the falls. looked like a nice place for fishing along the trail and swimming just past the falls

Great views and a really nice trail, hard hike but a good challenge

Awesome hike. Soft on your feet and beautiful trees. The view of the pool is incredible from above. Really cold water. Heavy trafficked trail

Fascinating place and an easy trail for creatures who wear boots. Four stars only because the trail was short and I wanted to see more. The way the flora got a root-hold in the landscape was both inspiring and beautiful. We visited in mid-June on a sunny and warm day. Be ready for the three variations of rock to heat up fast in midday and it reflects a lot of light so take sunscreen even for the short jaunt. Definitely a place for closed toe shoes, keep an eye on little kiddos, and please do not bring doggos - I don't think they make tough enough dog-boots for this particular trail. I witnessed one hiker carrying his adult yellow lab on his shoulders, they best place for him if he couldn't stay home.

Snowshoed on a clear day in January. Followed previous tracks up, and blazed our own trail coming back down. Quite steep at the final ascent, but manageable. View from the top was breathtaking.

Miss this place

Great place to hike when it's not to crowded

AMAZING hike and views! Definitely a difficult hike, but worth it! My all time fav!

By following the existing trail forged by those before me, I went straight up - round trip with some wandering around at the summit left my GPS showing only 2.98 miles. Snow was an icy pack the whole way up. Summit would be fantastic... On a day without a complete whiteout. Still worth the trip, great length and strenuous for a weekend day hike between breakfast and a late lunch. I look forward to going up in the spring.

Great hike, not long with some challenge, we ended up adding the summit trail to make it more challenging.

my very first trail in Oregon

perfect easy hike, I suggest you keep on going after checking out the falls!

Smith Rock trails never disappoint.

Hiked 2/4. Road up to the trailhead and trail in good shape. Last 1/4 mile a bit dicey with snow. It was doable in boots for sure, but would have felt a bit better in yak tracks.

Beautiful hike for snowshoes. Trail is covered so you’re at the mercy of the previous snowshoer who picked a pretty spicy grade up to the top.

Pretty spicy little moderate hike. Fantastic views. Little bit of snow on the top. Not enough to warrant snowshoes or spikes. Wind shifts up top and temps plummet. Layer accordingly.

Love it when I'm there to hike, hate it when I'm there to climb. But this trail always commands some of the most breathtaking sunsets in Oregon. Always a top pick.

It gets very warm and the incline is demanding in hot weather. Take plenty of water

Amazing hike, perfect weather just the right amount of challenge.

Great hike. I would recommend doing this loop counter clockwise, knocking out the hard part first, then enjoying the views and relaxing the rest of the way. The part that follows the river, especially on the backside is so peaceful and relaxing. Lots of waterfowl to be seen. Will definitely be doing this hike more often.

Totally kicked my out of shape butt! Loved every minute of it! Very scenic and great inviting atmosphere!
