Hiking at Smith Rock

Today was absolutely beautiful for a nice long hike. February in Central Oregon can be spectacular! Fun to watch the climbers do their thing! Scary!

My husband and visited Bend for the first time mid December. We are both hikers and were a little disappointed to discover that most hikes are inaccessible in winter (although there are still lots of great ones in/near Bend).

This is a wonderful place to take the family and walk around. More aggressive trails are available if you are up for it. Plenty of places to picnic.

Great views and hiking. Not so good for elderly or disabled persons, unless you stay on the top parking area.Dogs are welcome on a leash. You should be in great shape to hike Misery Ridge. It's a killer. There are places to enjoy a picnic lunch. Walk along the river and bring plenty of water in the summer to drink.

This hike is one of the best in Oregon. Great views, wildlife, not too difficult and you might even see a tight rope walker in between two rocks!

Smith Rocks located north of Redmond, and just East of Terrebonne is a great option for winter hiking. Temperatures in the canyon are always 10 degrees or more warmer than in Redmond or Bend. Lots of miles of trails available for hiking, mountain biking and even horse back riding. We love to hike along the river, but we also like... More
