Awesome trail, very busy, very doable for anyone. Easy trail and short enough to take your time. $5 parking fee.

Beautiful trail to the top. Quite the Climb though.

What an awesome hike. Did some fishing also and we caught a trout and a salmon. Pretty easy hike for some beautiful views.

This hike was incredibly beautiful. Watching all the rock climbers along the way is an added bonus. I highly recommend doing Misery Ridge, and know I will definitely do it again. There's pretty good elevation change and stairs, so I wouldn't do it if you have bad knees! Overall LOVED it.

Great, short hike! It took a total of 4 hours but we took our time and enjoyed the amazing views the entire trek. Went in early October and the weather was perfect. People had dogs on the trail and it was pretty crowded.

Went hear last November looking for hikes without snow in the bend area! This was was a great little hike in a canyon!

Today we visited 7/7 of the Oregon Wonders. Smith Rock was the final one and it did not disappoint. It reminded me a little bit of Zion - a mini version though. The hike was pleasant and easy up to the Misery Ridge. A couple of strenuous and steep switch backs take you to the top. The views on top are very rewarding. I totally recommend doing the river trail first and ascending the ridge from the back side. It’s shorter (but steeper) and faster. Also, your knees will thank the steps on the front side of the rock formation. Save some energy for the final incline to the parking lot. This one might be the most brutal one! Lol.

Great trail for our family! Wonderful views and walking along the river was delightful. It also had great spots to sit and enjoy the views along the way including all the rock climbing.

This was a terrific hike! We hiked counter-clockwise to get the ascent done first.
The hike was heavily trafficked on the day we were there.
Great views!

Beautiful this time of year, just be careful in some spots where the dirt is pretty loose.

very easy great swimming spot

Beautiful hike! The rock faces were stunning at every turn. The first portion was a steady uphill. The last third was flat. I wish it had been more of a workout but it made for a great part of the day!

We hiked Misery to River Trail around noon on a Sunday. It was early Oct. which was perfect weather for a hike like this. Air was crisp. The Misery trail is very vertical but doable for a mildly out of shape 52 year old. Just had to take frequent stops to catch my breath. It was worth it though! Back side was much easier but the steep decline was very slippery due to loose gravel. Take it slow.

Wonderful trail and a great view of Monkey Face. plenty of Trail Runners and pet walkers but not too overcrowded for a Wednesday midafternoon the river trail portion was very mild but crossing Misery Ridge was very steep with no guard rails. Definitely worth visiting again.

We started on this trail & ended up doing the entire summit loop trail. Very easy. Pretty view of the Crooked River with geese and ducks. This plus the entire loop was just under 8 miles with only one step section that didn’t last long. We brought a few snacks and water.

Did this hike 6 week postpartum. It was very challenging as I wasn’t in great shape yet, but was very doable. I definitely recommend! Go early! Wear sunscreen and don’t forget water! Very rewarding views. Lots of going up and but going down is challenging too with loose spots. Take your time!

This trail was beautiful! They were well marked. We did Misery Trail first and it was a bit strenuous but we just rested often. The views were spectacular!

Beautiful hike!

This trail was lung burner for sure! We took the misery ridge trail first and came back around on the river trail. Misery ridge is rated as difficult and river trail is easy, which I’m assuming is why this trail is labeled moderate. Took about 2 hours stopping for a few pictures. Views from the top are breathtaking!

Only did half of this (footbridge to summit & back) due to time, but a threat hike! Not for the inexperienced or out of shape. Will come back to finish this this and other again soon.

Completed this hike 9/21. Hiked the loop in the clockwise direction. That means we went left after crossing footbridge. Took the River trail to the Mesa Verde Trail, then hiked down the Misery Ridge trail. We found this the easier way to go since we had 2 kids with us. 11 years and 7 years old. My GPS app says we hiked 4.45 miles. I think that’s pretty accurate. On the Smith Rock map it says this loop is 4 miles and that doesn’t count the distance from the parking lot. So I don’t know why AllTrails says 3.6 miles.
The hike is breathtaking. Walking along the river and then seeing Monkey Face come into view...It was amazing. Then getting to the top...beyond words. You can see every mountain. Bachelor to Hood. I would do this hike again.

Took the 4-year-old and 2 month old along chutes to canyon trail to river trail then turned back about 1.25 miles in due to preschooler exhaustion. Gorgeous hike and even though it was a sparkling Sunday, beat the crowds. Super dusty and port-a-potties were full so empty your bladders before getting there. Lots of climbers to gawk at (do their mothers know they’re doing that?!?!?!). Great day!!!

Fairly easy hike, with some moderately steep parts, but overall barely broke a sweat. Worth the short trek! Incredibly beautiful waterfall, with many small swimming spots. Didn’t fish, but could see lots of large trout swimming around. Also, looks like there are nice camping spots just down the dirt street from the trailhead.

Beautiful hike, fantastic scenery. Completed this hike in September 2017.

This trail is gorgeous. Tons of payoff for pretty minimal effort, as we say in our fam. Definitely recommend.

Did this as a snow hike December ‘16 on a clear day and it’s one of the best hikes I will ever go on!! You can distinctly see every mountain in the Oregon Cascade range, it will take your breath away

Amazing things to see here the whole
Time . I really had to stop every few steps and look again as it changes so fast including climbers doing their thing on all the rock walls around

Hiked in September with my dog and really enjoyed it. Easy to moderate with a few rough spots but overall very nice. You will want to use a trail shoe for traction as the dusty trail can be a bit slippery the slanted portions .

This is a great trail, but boy it kicked my arse! I’m not very fit, and I have bad joints, so I’d either of those aren’t a problem for you it’s definitely doable. It took me about an hour to get up, and 45 minutes to get down the ridge itself; the river trail is quite pretty afterwards. I did the ridge first, which was easier for me as I can’t climb down stairs very well - if you’d prefer to go up stairs, go the ridge first, and if you’d prefer to go down stairs and up a hill, do the ridge last. There is an incline without stairs on both sides, but there are a fair few stairs up doing the ridge first.
You really have to watch your footing - I saw a lot of people fall, and I nearly slipped a few times myself, even with poles and hiking boots. Just be careful :)

This is a fun trail. I went with my friend who is a good hiker like me. It’s labeled as moderate which is accurate because some parts can be steep or rocky. Another group jumped off the cliff into the deeper water but we found sandy spots and swam. It’s very short but good for a hot day. There’s lots of lizards to find, be carful not to step on them!! Bring water, it definitely gets very hot in the summer. The road to the trail has many random turns but no service for GPS so take note of how to get back to the main road.
