Lovely trail, really. Hubs and I never saw anything clearly marking the trail though, so maybe we didn’t really hike this one. I read the reviews and lots of folks say it’s marked, but we seriously only saw one white fence post with red spray paint that said “SLT”. That’s it. I also never saw anywhere to refill water, like another poster mentioned. We did get some beautiful views and pictures.

This is a tough one (for me anyway). Long and lots of ups and downs. 1 full mile was a steady up hill clime. Beautiful sights though. My phone died with 4 miles left to go so map does not show all. It also says its a loop and it is but you must walk the road about 1 1/2 miles to get back to your car.

We camped at Dogwood campgrounds then jumped the road to start at Cedar Bluff then we took a right to finish the Skyline Trail. Amazingly marked except the last mile or so when it comes to a dead end at the power lines and then you pretty much keep going straight into some over your head grown grass but there is a trail in there that takes you back to the path. Be sure you will have plenty of water with a filter as it is has some pretty steep parts that make you work. We only came across one very nice campground about 4 miles in from Cedar Bluff start. A black bear did end up running us out of our campsite so they are there and please bring bear spray! We also walked the four mile road back to the campsite vs turning around and going back through the trail so keep that in mind also. Enjoy :)

Wet and muddy. Some wildflowers and nice views. Juneau lake and waterfalls were pretty. Lots of berries to eat. I find the hikes in Colorado to be much prettier without all the bad weather.

This trail was not what I expected. You will cross the backtop going up and over the dam. I used this app’s map to guide me on this hike. I got confused a few times since my directional since is not the best. You will have a few areas where you may feel like giving up, and the mileage on this trail is what you make of it. I ended up hiking 28.43 miles total over 12h 35m 33s time period. This is something I would have never ever done on my own accord. I this was something I felt led to do. All I can say is be prepared for this walk. I had 2 gallons of water in my pack that lasted me the entire walk. My post below was after my walk to my social media platforms. This was an experience I will never forget or ever do again

Hard as hell.

My first hiking trip ever. We did the 7 mile hike to Caribou Creek cabin. Trail was nice, a little muddy in spots but nothing that wasn’t impassable. Cabin was amazing!!!

Wonderful trail, beautiful but not crowded besides the last mile or so before the main park area. Some important things to know- there are plenty of water refill places along the entire trail, so don't waste water weight and carry a filter.
We started at what all trails calls the beginning (on the northern road) and never regretted our decision. Did some night hiking and saw tons of wildlife. The only thing I did not love about this trail was the lack of campsites (understandable, as most day-hike). Otherwise, 10/10. If you're looking for a remote, beautiful, and fairly hilly trail, this is it.

I’ve already hiked this once and can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. Bring plenty of water because you will need it.
@Ashley Allison- Hate to disagree with you but the trail is clearly marked (look at all the reviews) and it’s easy to follow as well. Perhaps you didn’t look hard enough.

Awesome scenic trail! Starts off across the road from dogwood campground. Park on the side of the road. You will see a big sign that says David Boren Trail and that is the trail head. Big hill to start with rewarding views! Trail continues up and down the ridges multiple small stream crossings plenty of water in early spring not so much in late summer and fall. Lots of good views and a nice water fall along bee creek. When you reach the river follow it north to the spill way which is the end of the trail. When you finish hitch a ride back to the trail head or road walk the mile and a half back. I’ve done this trail twice and it took me 7 hours at a comfortable pace.

Never found the actual trail. Several people asked if we knew where the trail started too and no one seemed to find it? Not marked at all. We were really bummed- drove out 3 hours for a trail that we read as a great trail but couldn’t even find it! Good thing we already knew Broken Bow enough to go to get pizza and shop around.

Good trail, make sure to take plenty of water. There’s a long stretch, about 4 miles or so along the north side without any shade so plan to get as much done in the morning as possible and take a siesta. Don’t wait too long, though, because the trails near the dam are difficult to navigate in the dark when your phone dies because you left it sitting in the sun (oops). Signage is also off from my gps in varied amounts. I think only one mile marker was accurate. All in all a good challenging hike, beautiful views and varied terrain!

Did this 38 mile trail in 2 1/2 days. Well marked with plenty of water resources, campsites and bear boxes. Beautiful views and easy elevation gain/drops.

Amazing trail run. I only did the southern loop which ended up being longer than I had guessed (8.5 miles). Lots of vertical (1900+ according to Strava) and a bunch of options to stop and cool off in cool running water. Well marked most of the time, there are just a few short stretches where it’s a tad tough to follow. I only saw 4 other people during the whole loop. I’d come back again to this area just to run this trail.

Great changes in elevation. Well maintained.

Always take enough water or a filtering system. No potable water on the south side. Cell phone coverage if you get into trouble. Tough mountain biking. Fastest of the fast about 3 hours. Mortals 4-5.

Great park & walk this morning.

nice weekend backpacking trial. plan on carrying some water and a filter. you will only be able to get to the lake in a few spots without a fight. trial was in good condition. this is not for someone looking for a remote trial. glad I did it, now on to the next.

Just hiked the trail. I am not impressed by trail conditions. Most parts of trail are not well maintained, sign is not cleared. Will not recommend to hike at summer day. At least half trail has no shade. If you do, do carry lots of water.

Great trail! We loved the different elevations, it allowed us to see some incredible views. Majority of the trail is shaded which allows you to enjoy the hike even in the hot summer days. There was also different lookout spots to capture some awesome views of the lake.

I have now done this hike 4 summers in a row. I love it. It is great for kids and my 70 year old mother just finished it. The cabins along the way are great. The views are spectacular.

A satisfying walk in a beautiful part of the state. Lots of ups and downs, but nothing technically challenging. All you need is a water bottle with a filter—you’ll never be more than an hour or so of hiking from a stream or river to fill up. We brought water shoes, but we didn’t need them: the streams have easy places to cross without getting wet.

My one complaint is that the trail is not a full loop. You have to walk on the road for a mile and a half or so to connect the two ends (regardless of whether you do the northern loop or not—we didn’t think it’d be worth it because it seems to put you right next to the highway).

I brought my German Shepherd and she loved every minute. 9 miles took us 5 hours at what felt like a relaxed pace; I was surprised that my calves felt a bit sore that night from all the hills.

This was a great trail, but next time I go to Beaver’s Bend I think I’ll kayak instead!

Great trail, good climbs with scenery and views that makes it worth it.

Agree that the map is incomplete, trail goes further west, just shy of 17 miles total on the full loop

We (two - - age 40-something adults) set out to take the Skyline Trail; because of the washed out bridge, we walked 1.5 miles on the road and entered the trail at Cedar Bluff Trail as it was part of Skyline (not marked as such only knew cuz of this app). Followed the ‘red hiker’ signs marked on trails. Some areas were confusing as to which way to go so we had to use the map on this app and did some back-tracking. Took us 5.5 hours and we were constantly moving.
I would recommend bringing 3 or more water bottles for sure. It was a lot of fun. Challenging. But not too bad!

Great trail with nice views over Lake Texoma, nice weather and great company, can’t ask for anything else!

From Colorado and was looking for a weekend hike. The Eisenhower trail along Lake Texoma was a nice getaway. Nothing too exotic or unique about the trail. Came a day after rains and the trail was quite muddy. Did find a Cove which exposed the prehistoric sea floor and if you look carefully you can find fossil remnants in a lot of the stones that were exposed. The trail is composed of areas of dirt, gravel, uneven rocks and short elevation gains up and down. I would agree that this is a moderate hike. If you bring your dog(s) be conscientious about the path materials as it might make their paws sore.
