Here are seven photos from the Misery Ridge Loop Trail in Oregon's Smith Rock State Park.

 

The trail is approximately 4.0 miles (6.4 kilometers) long with a cumulative elevation gain of 840 feet (256 meters). Carry and drink plenty of water in summer heat, as the trail offers little shade.

 

The photos show the views from this hike in the order in which they occur when hiking the loop counterclockwise.
