Smith Rock First Day Hikes Ring in the New Year

Smith Rock First Day Hikes Ring in the New Year

Start off 2019 with a free ranger-led hike—all you pay is for your $5 parking place. Smith Rock park rangers are offering a choice of two First Day Hikes to help you learn about winter wildlife and the unique geological features of the park. The Rimrock Trail allows you to stay above the canyon along the park’s rim. The Wolf Tree Trail starts after you descend into the park and make a right across the bridge.
