“This trail goes from McCoin Orchard to briefly join Cole Loop Trail #854, then heads to Smith Rock State Park.”— Rick.Krause Krause
From the orchard, head west on Gray Butte Trail #852. After almost a mile the trail turns south, passing along the base of Gray Butte. In 2.7 miles, Gray Butte Trail #852 joins Cole Loop Trail # 854 to head southeast for about a mile. Where Cole Loop Trail # 854 splits off, take a right to stay on Gray Butte Trail #852, which continues south before making a sharp turn west.
The trail continues southwest, entering Deschutes County and BLM land at about 4.8 miles. As the trail continues south, you'll have nice views of Smith Rock and the cascade mountains. The trail ends at the junction with Burma Road and Summit Trail.
