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.

Fair amount of traffic on the trail, but we went during the last week of summer. We didn't hike the extra loops this time, but we plan to go back to try them in the future.

Loved this trail! Added Bromide Hill to the walk and was rewarded with a fabulous view. We even saw the bison. I really enjoyed the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. We will be back to hike some of the trails we haven't gotten to yet. And not too bad a drive from OKC.

Very nice walk and very clean and maintained. There are 3 loops that are a little more moderate hike that were fun. Pretty views.

Nice trail with lots of trail fingers for exploring! My 9 and 5 year old cruised through this trail. Trail isn’t marked great but is easy to follow due to the traffic. Perfect for younger children!

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!

This was a fun hike although it seems like more of a rock climb. we were up in about 2 hours and down in 1. I should have taken the advice of the other reviewers and worn long pants cause it shredded my legs. Check for tics when you come down, we had quite a few on us. Beautiful scenery and so serene.

Been living here in the Lawton/Fort Sill area for 6 years and while we’d been out the refuge area so many times, I’d never done a hiking trail until today. I took my 3.5 and 1 year old children with me. The 3.5 year old climbed his way up the bouldered areas and even made it down to the 40 foot hole all by himself! I carried my youngest on back and was able to climb up and down easily enough as well. It was a great first hike!

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

Lots of fun, clean trail, a little overgrown by the lake with tons of grasshoppers. didn't make it all the way to the south end, so I will have to come back later this week. saw a heron, a few lake birds, and a lizard. it rained last night, and the trail was damp, but no mud.

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

Nice little hike/walk. The Nature Center was at the beginning of the trail, super friendly, and helpful staff, and Rangers. Went early Monday morning, and didn’t run into anyone else. Wish It was longer. .

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.

Beautiful view of the falls and very easy walk to get there!

Lots of bouldering! Was a lot of fun though. Friends and I climbed up the side of the mountain quick enough.

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

Great way to kill a few hours and the view is pretty all the way around.

It's not well marked. But it even warns you ahead of time. I'm pretty sure I was off the trail within the first five minutes. But was a lot of fun. Looking forward to going back.

Great hike. With the switchback we hiked 6.0 miles. The switchback is real slim with overgrown areas but beautiful. Over all. Great trail system. 5/5

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.

Beautiful views from the top!

Great trail. Took the dog and a toddler without issue.

This is a great hike. The trail is very clearly marked and the scenery is fantastic. I'm looking forward to going back and trying other trails.

Calling it a trail is a bit of a stretch, there’s definitely a trail at the very start but it quickly devolves into just finding a way up and then back down, mainly by climbing around on the boulders. Some precarious little areas depending on the route you take, which makes it even more fun. Definitely a workout and some great views along with it

The views while walking along this ravine the trail follows was beautiful, but having no shade made this hike very difficult, especially since it was during summer. Pay close attention to the trail because the markings is a bit off and can get confusing. If you get lost just walk along the creek and you should meet back with the trail in no time.

Great hike with kids we even saw the bison!

Even though it was crazy hot during our hike it was still amazing, there are a lot of signs for snakes so please be careful, you will be hiking both up and down hill a lot though more up then down it seems like but the hike to the top although difficult turned out to be very beautiful if you go on a hot day please please please bring Lots of water. It’s very nice and has two lakes and great views there is wildlife and a lot of cactus so watch out.
