I did the Misery Trail loop and it was wonderful! Beautiful views and a challenging hike. I left the parking lot around 5:00 during the week and I had the place to myself. What a find!

We were on our way to catch a plane out of Redmond and had some time to waste so we stopped at Smith Rock. It was amazing! I wish we would have had a lot more time to explore. So scenic and beautiful.

I went on a Monday afternoon and did the Misery Ridge Trail. It was busy with rock climbers and some hikers, but not terribly crowded once I got up Misery Ridge a ways. The Misery Ridge Trail itself is beautiful, but it is a lot...More

Hiked Misery trail. Great outdoor area full of beautiful scenery. Trail is difficult but the view on the top is worth it.
