Smith Rock State Park is one of central Oregon’s most amazing places. 30 million-year-old rock spires and cliffs draw rock climbers from all over the world, and the views in this 650-acre park are unbeatable. For one of the best views, take the strenuous Misery Ridge Trail. It’s a tough slog… but this hike, one of the best hiking trails in the U.S., is worth it!
