Smith Rock State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Though Smith Rock State Park is one of the top rock-climbing destinations in the United States, it’s also one of the best spots in Central Oregon for a trail run. Unique rock formations, meandering rivers, and stunning vistas combine for a perfect day out on the trail.
That beauty comes with a price, however: Many of the viewpoints require a good amount of climbing, and you can expect to be one of many people on the trails, particularly on weekends. But as with most running destinations, you’ll have broken away from the crowds after a mile or two. Several loop options are available and can be combined to fit your needs. The recommended starting point is at the main trailhead, near the visitor center."
