OR – Smith Rock State Park

Although I’ve been to and through Bend many times, I’ve never spent time with locals. I enjoyed quite the introduction thanks to hiking friends Jill and Robert. 

Hike #1 – Deschutes River Trail

Bend has a beautiful park and trail system paralleling the Deschutes River. 

Hike #2 – Black Butte, Deschutes National Forest

This is a great workout and views trail near Sisters. We had to skip the summit view on this day due to lightning.

Hike #3 – Smith Rock State Park

This is a very popular area near Bend. 

We hiked the outside loop trails. 

We skipped Misery Ridge. 

The park has helpful interpretive signage. 

And being the rocky place it is, we found plenty of colorful rocks. 

With the recent rains, we were happy to find waterfalls. This can be a dry hot place with the exception of Crooked River.
