exploring smith rock state park

The last part of our road trip adventures were spent exploring Smith Rock State Park. Oh my goodness you guys, it is beautiful here!

The park is located in Central Oregon about 25 minutes from Bend. The park covers 650 acres and full of compressed volcanic ash and welded tuff rock faces.

This place is AMAZING! With trails and huge rock walls for climbing, Smith Rock Start Park attracts hikers, horseback riders, climbers, trail runners and mountain bikers. It is a destination for all things outdoors!

We picked the River Trail, one of the easy and more kid friendly hikes but there are numerous trails and places to explore and even picnic areas with incredible views.

The Crooked River runs right through the middle of the park which makes everything even more beautiful!

Sport climbing at Smith Rock is world famous so you are able to spot all kinds of climbers scaling the rock walls. 

Another must see Oregon attraction!
