Level 3-Smith Rock Hike

Missing the Rocks..

Not sure exactly where will hike this time, but there will be some elevation...


Maybe up Misery Ridge and down near Monkey Face, back along the River Trail, with some off trail scrambling up the southern rocks for a near sunset perch. Hopefully the weather will be nice.

    Great little after work hike! Good group!! On top of Misery Ridge at the perfect time. Got back to the cars before it got dark... NO headlamp required...

    @Kathleen ~. Hi : ), the hikes in Smith Rock are different than the climbs around there. Trails are safe, bit of gravel/scree here and there, mostly dirt. I just had friends actually climb there, sunny cold and gorgeous! Now is some of the best times to hike this area, as summer is uncomfortably HOT! If little bit of snow, might carry 'Yak Trax' for boots but just a pr of good boots should be okay too : ). If I were not volunteering for an outdoor club that early evening, I would go and do the bot slower safer pace hiking if trails were questionable but doable : ). Have a nice hike if you decide to go!

      Thanks for your encouragement, Cindi. I am planning on going and having a great time. I have hiked this trail before so do know what to expect. I was just not excited about hiking through ice and snow. Hopefully, it will be melted off by the time we get there. Hope, hope! See you on the next hike!!

    Hey TJ would you be interested in car pooling from Redmond, I live on Powell Butte. Or for that matter maybe at the Powell Butte P.O. at 5:15?

      Ok, thanks for letting us know!

    I thought of changing the name of the group to The Bend "Fair Weather" Hiking Group.. Just kidding! kinda. :P Actually the weather tomorrow is suppose to be mostly sunny, highs in the 50's. But no probs, hope to see you soon! :)

      I don't how much snow is at the park. Looking at the traffic cams near Redmond, I didn't see any. It doesn't take long for the trails to dry out. If you feel better driving yourself, that's fine. There's a $5 park fee per car. Look forward to see you there. BTW, I don't think you're a flake... :)

    • Kathleen K.

      thanks for the reminder about a park fee. glad you don't think i'm a flake :-)

    Ok, this is the second hike I've bailed on. I really am a fair weather hiker, climber and would rather not slip and slide along the path with elevation. I have been on this hike before. It's gorgeous....but I am going to back out and join a repeat one in better weather. Sorry :-(

  • William C.

    Change in my plans. Enjoy.

    We'll be leaving at 5:20. Let me know if you are driving yourself and/or meeting us there... Should be at the park about 5:50. Sunset is at 7:52 this day, Give us a couple of hours to enjoy the park.

    Wondering how many hours/miles of hiking : )?? This is such a lovely place!

    April 11, 2013

    • Aaron

      Maybe couple hours, 4-5 miles max. Some good elevation up Misery Ridge.
