    This was not such a difficult hike the third time around. So we did another loop a much longer one, which due to heat made it tough to go up the Burma trail so we took a lot of time to cool of on top sparse tree shade. We came down Summit to River trail to finish the big loop. We had a wonderful time watching the sunset from Rim Rock trail to finish the day.

    Great day hike, kid friendly. Our 5 and 7 year old did fine and enjoyed it. Keep them on a short leash up top! Also, if you’re kids are into geocaching this is a fun spot for it.

This hike goes around Smith Rock, climbing a little bit and then going around the famous monkey face rock formation. It then becomes a pleasant walk next to the Crooked River. Very nice.
