Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Viewpoint – 11/198

Oregon State Park #11 of 198!

If you’ve driven on Hwy 97 in Central Oregon, you have likely seen the iconic Peter Skene Odgen bridges as you drive by. These stunning bridges span a breath taking canyon cutting through Central Oregon. After hiking at nearby Smith Rock State Park, we took a short, ten minute drive over to this scenic viewpoint. While there, we realized there is a bungee jumping company settled in the middle of one of the bridges and we got to watch one brave soul take multiple jumps!

Our Story:

I’m an adventurous soul who feels most at home surrounded by trails, trees, and water. Hiking is my peace and meditation, and I am so glad to be sharing this with the whole family. In Spring of 2022, our family took a weekend trip to the Oregon Coast and it was just as I remembered it when I was young. Breathtaking beauty, misty rain, and vast greenery. We visited several locations down the central coast that weekend and I craved more. We passed so many State Parks that looked intriguing, but I knew nothing about them, so I bought a book about the Oregon State Parks for future trip planning. When I was reading the book I realized… I want to see then ALL! So the family decided to embark on the adventure of visiting every State Park in Oregon (and hopefully moving on to Washington after).
