Description

The Summit Trail is the northern-most section of the Smith Rock State Park Summit Loop Trail, and where the Smith Rock State Park Summit Loop Trail gets its name.

From the top of Burma Road you'll join several switchbacks that drop you in altitude. When the trail begins to straighten out you'll be at the top of the Monument Ridge. It is very easy to sneak over to the edge for some breathtaking views of the valley. Along the Summit Trail, there is a small viewpoint spur that takes you to another cliff edge. Plenty of open "High Desert" country to look at.

This section of the trail is pretty smooth and easy to walk, ride, or run on. The slope is not as steep as the Burma Road. As the trail swings back to the north it becomes the River Trail at its connection with the Mesa Verde Trail.
