Narrows Trail to Boulder Mountain is a 1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Indiahoma, Oklahoma that features a river and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This trail takes hikers to the top of Eagle Mountain (nickname Boulder Mountain) This hike begins on the narrows trail and then cuts off on a rock scramble to the top of Eagle Mountain. The overall gain is not very much but large rocks that must be navigated up or around are not for the faint of heart.
The trail was very hard to find so we did our own little "off the beaten path" hiking. Almost considered putting this one under rock climbing lol. We went when it was 28 degrees out so most of the rocks were covered with ice which made it very challenging, but worth the risk once we got to the top!
This trail is simple and has some of the best views (in my opinion) in the wichitas. The trail is not well marked and I ended up off the beaten path a couple times; however, I would recommend this trail to anyone especially in the fall when the leaves are changing colors.
Not easy to find but worth it! Great views of the Wichitas.
Like other people have mentioned, you should probably be in pretty good shape if you wanna try and make it to the top of Eagle Mt. Also, there isn't a trail once you start boulder hopping. I went up and down in a couple of hours and paused to eat lunch at the peak. Super beautiful scenery. Only negative I can think of is that the summit area was covered with cactus and thorny vines which made the trek rather painful at times even with long pants/sleeves.
Really fun hike. Never went up to the top of Eagle Mountain, just boulder hopped through the creek. Beautiful scenery. Went about mid-day on a Saturday and we didn't see any other hikers until we were almost back to the trailhead around 6PM.
This is, by far, my favorite trail in the Wichitas. Many know this trail only for rock climbing, but the water winding through this canyon is something to see. There are multiple scenic lookouts with breathtaking views of cliffs and natural fauna. You can also watch people do some rock climbing.
amazing hike, good bouldering, bo set trail, but still easy to navigate, overall good time, the river is the best part
Super pretty. Lots of unstable rocks at first and it is kind of hard to know where the actual trail is. We basically made our own then followed the river down. Will be going back this summer!
Surprisingly fun hike. Good views and interesting rock formations. Parking lots fill quickly so start early.
This is a really great trail to get to the narrows climbing area where many ppl rock climb in the refuge. The trail is rather rocky but nothing crazy for a regular hiker. The views are amazing and provides alot of shady spots on hot sunny days with alot of water to cool off in if you need to splash some one yourself. But there is no swimming anywhere on the refuge. There is also a great lil trail to the north of the river fork that takes you north for a nice place to eat lunch and escape the other hikers.
You can also start at the group camp site. just walk to the back of the site to find the trail most ppl start at this point.
