Gray Butte

Gray Butte Professional Review and Guide

"Though the tallest landmark in the area, Gray Butte is nearly always overshadowed by the beauty and popularity of nearby Smith Rock State Park. Overlooking Gray Butte, however, is a mistake.

Not only does the area provide wonderful solitude on the trails, but parking is never an issue, nor are park fees. A combination of well-worn horse and mountain trails, combined with a bit of gavel road, makes for an excellent loop with an opportunity for 360-degree views around the butte. Plus, you get to see what many park goers never see at Smith Rock—the back side of it."
