Smith Rock State Park, Redmond

4.9
Home to a 168 m (550 ft) tall volcanic rock formation featuring nearly 2,000 climbing routes, Smith Rock State Park is one of the world's capitals of rock climbing. Set on 259 ha (641 acres) of semi-forested, high-desert landscape, the park is also home to plateaus and the winding Crooked River. Hike along its network of trails through the canyons. Keep your eyes open for a glimpse of local wildlife, such as golden eagles and otters. If you're a climber, indulge in this world-class opportunity to clamber up the sheer cliff face. From a higher vantage point, you'll be rewarded with views of Deschutes County and the distant Cascade Mountains.

  • What a majestic park. Park is kept really clean by rangers, hosts, and the people that visit seem to help keep it clean. Plenty of trails and if your a ROCK climber seems like it's SPECTACULAR
  • 5$ for a day pass was a great deal. Parking was somewhat limited and pretty full on a weekday afternoon. Plenty of restrooms at parking and one lower in the valley. Did the Misery Ridge Trail which was equivalent to being on a stair master for 30min. Great view of the valley and the river from the top.
