Smith Rock Geo-Exploration

Led by Derek Loeb

Wednesday, May 24, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Please join Derek Loeb as we explore a portion of Smith Rock State Park.  After an orientation and overview from the rim, we will descend into the canyon and hike about 2.5 miles downstream.  Along the way we will discuss caldera formation, role of the rhyolite dike in determining the course of the Crooked River and the Crooked River Gorge intracanyon basalt.  Total distance for this hike will be about 5 miles with an elevation loss/gain of about 350'.

Contact the field trip coordinator, Derek Loeb ( ), with questions.

Please note that this event is limited to 14 participants and registration must be done via the registration button on the trip listing on the COGS website.  Successful registration will be confirmed on the webpage by a light green box indicating registration was successful and by a confirmation email.  If you don't get this email you should try the registration process again.  If the trip is full, please join the wait list.
