Smith Rock State Park Redmond
Great to hike or climb! Park and take the hike up to Monkey face, bike, walk the river or take your climbing gear!
The running trail along the river where you can see otter, white-tailed deer, ducks and Heron, keeps you one with nature and in awe at the beauty around you.

Beautiful drive gets you to a nice parking area and a little walk gets wonderful views of nature at it's best.
