Beautiful canyon and creek, Rock Climbing, Sheer cliffs, hiking and Mountain biking. This hike takes you up and down through this climbers paradise. Because this is a world famous climbing site and the weather is good year round, solitude is hit or miss. The amazing hike through the crooked river canyon is worth putting up with the crowds. The trail is mostly easy walking but gets quite strenuous as it climbs over the ridge. Stop occasionally and watch the climbers rise and fall on the solid rhyolite tuff. Many optional routes can lead you through this park, but one main trail exists throughout. Dont miss monkey face and other rock formations. After hiking this park, head over to the Cove Palisades and hike the Tam-A-Lau Loop.

Easy trail with a steep start and right away rewarding views! Once you pass the Monkey face you saw the best part of the hike. From there, the hike goes down and remains flat till the end.

Awesome hike just a few miles from Redmond. We're fortunate to get to do this hike regularly and never get tired of it. Cycling the river trail is also a blast when there aren't too many visitors....otherwise the trail can get fairly congested.
