nature trips





If you enjoy scenic views of deep river canyons or rock climbing, Smith Rock State Park is the place for you. There are several thousand climbs in the park. More than a thousand are bolted routes. We also offer miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. Along your trip through the canyon, you might see golden eagles, prairie falcons, mule deer, river otter and beaver. Due to the uniqueness and fragile aspect of the park, park rangers enforce the animal leash law and strongly encourage all park users to stay on trails. Note: Open fires prohibited at all times. There is a designated place for cooking with propane and white gas stoves. Cooking is not allowed anywhere else in the park. Gas lanterns are also prohibited. Smoking is only allowed in vehicles.

Absolutely gorgeous views! Great workout too!

Go early because it gets hot! beware of rattlesnakes, there's some... went with my two Chihuahuas and we enjoyed the trail!

Finished in 2 hours. Great quick hike. I went up the steep way first, and I didn't find it to be as terrible as it sounds. It's steep for sure but before you know it you're at the top. I went early morning to beat the crowd and heat. Wear good shoes bc it's loose gravel and sand. And lots of water. Beautiful. And then you go down and have a flat easy trail to cool down on.
