Ive lived in the northwest for 25 years and had never heard of Smith Rock. I happened to look online for beautiful getaways, and came across Smith Rock. I am so glad I did.

Truly amazing scenery. The kind of place you could expect to see Wile E Coyote chasing Road Runner around. Loads of interesting walks of varying difficulty and rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking etc for the less faint of heart. Reasonable parking charges and a short...More
