This place is a hidden gem to many people. As a photographer, I have known about it but never visited it since it was a 10 hour drive from home. Get there before dawn if possible because the rocks light up early and the sky behind them can be stunning. Shoot from the parking lot area before going to the valley floor. Bring all your lenses since you can use a close-up all the way to tele's. Cross the river bridge and photograph the climbers. I could go on and on!

Smith Rock State Park, a place to enjoy and relax and enjoy
Oct 2021 • Family
We visited the park in late October. The color changing of the fall leaves was spectacular. You can watch the rock climbers, hike any one of the trails, loook for wildlife, or just sit by the meandering river and relax

What a terrific experience. So much to see and do. The trails were great. Being senior citizens we were glad there were trails they we could safely hike. It was interesting to watch the climbers tackle some precarious climbs as well the other hikers navigate trails there were challenging. There was something for everyone.

WORTH A VISIT

This is worth the very short drive from 97. The trails are great and vistas were wonderful. We at lunch at picnic tables at far east end. This is a great park.

Did De Chute ... Super Scenery
Aug 2021
Fantastic Scenery packed into a small area along with multiple level of difficulty hikes. Rock Climbers haven, too. If what goes down, must come back up gets to you ... then, you can get great views from the rim trail without much effort. It can get pretty hot in the summer, so get there early for better temps and lighting.

The chute trail descends right down to the river.

Perfect hike for all ages / capabilities!
Aug 2021 • Family
Gorgeous compact park with amazing rock formations towering above a lush river canyon. Visited on an early Monday morning to beat the heat and the crowds! Hikes are all very short and well marked. Husband and three sons 8-16 yrs. took off over Misery Ridge to see Monkey Face, then descended via Mesa and returned via River Trail. Arthritic mother walked the level but so beautiful River Trail almost to Mesa, then turned around, and all of us ended back up at the car wi 20 minutes of each other. Fun watching rock climbers of all experience levels. This is a very unusual area for Oregon, it felt like you were in Utah! Easy drive from Redmond or Bend.

Incredible, almost unreal
Jul 2021
This little park is almost too good to be true. It's a river with greener on the banks within a rock landscape that is astounding. All of it easily accessible. One could even just drive up and look over the edge of the valley to be satisfied. Wonderful.

Very busy and hot.

Not far off the highway you end up in a place that could be in Utah. Fantastic rock formations. It was very busy. We checked out the views and had our picnic lunch. There is a pay station for the use fee and you can use a credit card. Picnic tables had some shade. Bathrooms available. Some trails.
