Great little hike downhill ... to get there. The reward is well worth the trek back up the hill.

Great walking trails walked two of the seven that they had. Beautiful views and well marked!

Once you hit summit, this is a real challenge. I’d rate it from difficult to very difficult. It’s more like bouldering than hiking.

Great trail, beautiful views. we saw several deer and lots of squirrels. Took us about 3 hrs to do the full 5 miles.

Beautiful trail. The hike up was enjoyable. I think it would benefit if it had some trail markers on the main trail. Has a lot of offshoot trails and someone could easily get turned around if they weren't familiar with land nav. I took. couple of them on the way down. One of them led me too a more difficult rocky area. To me made it more enjoyable but could see someone getting hurt. The view from the top was amazing.

Great family friendly trail with lots of sights and activities packed into a short hike. Fun and beautiful.

Started on Kite Trail and made our way to Bison Trail. There are several little side trails off of Kite Trail, which can be a little confusing. For that reason I'd say Kite Trail is not well-marked. However, the Bison and Longhorn Trails are marked very well. To get from the Kite Trail to the Bison Trail, you'll cross over the dam. Then you can follow the Bison loop all the way around or cut it a little short by crossing over the Longhorn Trail. The annoying part about this trail is that (as you see on the map) you have to double-back to the Kite Trail to cross back over at the dam and do the Kite Trail all over again. However, as you make the the turn for the last stretch of the Bison Trail, there's an unmarked trail to your right that will take you to a beach area where you can cross the river very easily. The parking lot is right across from this crossing. Nice little short cut if you don't want to walk up and down the river again!

Very cool trail. As first time park goers we couldn't find the waterfalls, so definitely have a good map!

Many of the trails at the wildlife refuge are hard to follow but luckily this one is fairly easy to follow. The view at the top is beautiful and I like that it’s a little workout without being too strenuous! We have done this trail many times, it’s my favorite in the area!

I ran it but it’s road running not trail. Beautiful morning run before they let the cars use the road

Just a great trail all around. The Kite section the most scenic. Saw buffalo skeleton along the way.

A little steep in a couple of places, but very pretty. my phone said 4.9 miles, not 3.9. At the very end I ran into a gigantic bunch of seed ticks though.

Pretty good trail not very well marked but easy to follow. Went in the middle of the day which was a bad idea because it was so hot but the shade on the way up what nice. Once at the top I pretty much just got off the trail and free roamed which was nice. Great view at the top and real fun to boulder jump. One of the best parts about my hike was seeing a huge collared lizard. Overall it was nice easy trail and would definitely recommend going to if in town.

loved the area, it would have been better in spring or fall but still beautiful. parking for this area is horrible, I rode a motorcycle there and it was difficult to get out of. a low car would also have trouble.

Pretty decent hike. Your back side will definitely feel it. Great scenery, best hike in OK so far. Overall, great adventure.

We only had an hour to hike so we couldn’t do the whole trail but what we saw was beautiful.

It was a beautiful, scenic trail. We took lots of pictures of the surrounding mountainsides. Wish I could say I’d be back when the waterfall was flowing, but I came from out of state. We explored the campgrounds as well. I’d definitely recommend the park to anyone who loves camping and hiking.

Should be the 8th wonder of the world!

Gorgeous, easy trail. There are some rocks to climb and water to play in along the way. Fairly trafficked, and lots of trash honestly. I carried a lot of what I came across out with me.

What a gem tucked away in Oklahoma. I traveled to Lawton for work and found this trail. I was able to hike to the top and back in just under 2.5 hours, although I wanted to keep going. I was racing the sunset since I ventured out after 5p that day. When you get to the top of the trail you can see for miles, and you wouldn’t know at the trail head, but there are some really beautiful rock formations you can explore and climb once you get to the top. Very much wanted to spend more time on this trail.

Great trails! Last time I was here in July of 2017, there was A LOT of spiders, so many I was nervous and decided to turn around. The other times I have gone, June 2015 and July 2016, not so many!

Beautiful view but the trail was not well marked.

This was a very easy trail. It was very clean and easy to follow. The only way you would get confused on this trail is if you did not look at the map at all. There are a few entrances to the trail, but these are all marked. Good views on the side that goes along the lake.

Trail is clearly marked! There are a few dry creek crossings where the trail is a little tricky to spot though. Make sure to grab a stick to knock down spider webs if you go in the morning.

LOVED hiking this trail on and off! we went adventuring up and down the rockface and it was SO exhilarating with beautiful views, a couple of neat little caves and refreshing waters at the falls! also a big plus to have multiple options for camping! (cabins, tent, or rv)

Great trail. Very rocky with vertical gain making it moderate to difficult. However, my 9 year did fine. At the top, the area opens up wide with lots of side trails to explore. from the top go southwest for bouldering fun. take plenty of water.

More of a 4-wheeler trail...beautiful hollow with the falls

Great trails

Excellent quick trail with lots to offer. Tons of caves, rock walls, and with heavy rain apparently a waterfall (no rain lately so not present today). Trail was well marked and nearby several other trails.

It was fun! Family friendly and very beautiful. Sometimes the trail was hard to follow so I was thankful for this app’s map.
