Fun trail. Easy in parts, but definitely a couple areas which would have challenged someone with physical limitations.

Not well maintained at this point in time. I had to retrace my path several times because of overgrowth. It was pretty but more difficult to enjoy due to poor maintenance. I also agree with Doug down below that AllTrails is not accurate with this particular trail.

This was a great trail! Not completely clear so if you have small kids and things I would not go. But for the avid hiker, it was great! Very scenic and one of the best I’ve hiked in this area!

Nice trail along a ridge, short climb at the end and beginning, otherwise flat.

Nice trail, crosses a couple small creeks, open timber. best hiked clockwise. The track on alltrails is not accurate. To stay on track start at the trailhead at the ranger station and hike clockwise. It is a great loop. Red Oak trail is a nice shorter alternate if short on time.

Good trail. Very beautiful at parts. Love the little streams you encounter every now and then.

Simple out and back trail partially along an old old double track. Follows a small creek and leads to a small river before climbing the bluff. Not real showy.

It was a nice short trail, followed a small creek, had minor rock formations a long a bluff, and a small area of prairie. NIce for the area.

I enjoyed this hike. It follows an old road, but has a couple of nice elevation changes and the sounds of the trees and birds are wonderful...

Best hike in the area. Starts off with a good incline for the first ten to fifteen minutes. There are are a few places that could be better marked. I do this hike a few times a year. I usually see a deer or something. nice views of oak (mostly) and pine forests. There are a few creek crossings (shallow).

Very enjoyable wide trail. Went in the fall with leaves on the trees in full color.

Pleasant fall hike. Surface is a bit uneven and requires care when ascending and descending hill.

Beautiful trail in the fall. There are several trails that cross so you have the option of adjusting the distance by mixing and matching. Talks are broad with little undergrowth. I traveled about 45 minutes to get to this park and will definitely return to do different sections of the trails.

Did this hike to break up an 8.5 hour drive, and I will never make that mistake again! Trail was very overgrown and difficult to follow, and the maps were little help. To add onto that, my dog and I both came out with HUNDREDS of ticks. If you really want to hike this area, you should be prepared for navigation issues and have plenty of tick repellent.

Initially, great views as the trail winds near the creek. A dilapidated staircase takes you to the top of the ridge. We made it 1.7 miles from the trailhead, and the weeds became waist high so we decided to loop back. Overall, decent moderate hike.

It has some tough inclines, but was a joy to home through!

I go on this trail often. My only complaint is in some spots it's really overgrown and almost hard to tell what is the trail and what is just the forest. it's not marked out very well but no matter what way you go it's simply to find your way back to the beginning. it's definitely beautiful and great exercise

November, got to the trail head only did a over a 1/2 mile and lost the trail and ran into some hunters. So turned around and went back. Going to try this trail in April. Look fun though.

Nice hike with a wide open path. It is mostly flat until you get close to the valley where it has a gradual decline.

Another one of my favorites. Did my first solo overnighter at the little campground earlier this year around April time frame. Had an absolute amazing night, turkeys called, coyotes answered, turkeys shut up haha. no ticks, that time. Went back in August with intentions of another overnighter. uhh.. yeah that didn't happen. Got to the campground again and was just covered in ticks it was horrible. Shoulda known better honestly. That was with spray and the like. I am planning to go sometime in the next few weeks, hoping to catch the last bit of color before it all gets drab. Keep hiking, you just might find yourself. -Chris

First time at Siloam Springs. Didn't have a trail map, but not a huge deal. Trail starts out at an old wooden bridge just past the archery range. Trail was easy to follow, not well marked but not an issue. Starts out with a pretty decent uphill stretch, but fairly easy run.

This is a trail that simply goes up a ridge through hardwood forest and loops around the steep gully and back down the other side of the gully. The trail is poorly maintained but it is nice for somebody who just wants a quick jaunt through the woods. I found a nice sulfur shelf mushroom at the top and a few "hen of the woods" at the bottom.

I hiked Red Oak trail at Silom Springs state park today and I was actually impressed at both the scenery and the difficulty. Most of the trail is very park like with paths that are big enough to drive a car down but there are a few very, very nice sections that are not much more than a deer path. Wild mushrooms were abundant today since the fall rains have started. There is a good mix of different varieties of trees, bushes, creeks, meadows, rock, hills, etc.. I would say its a kind of "all in one" type trail. Water is there year round from a spring fed creek. There is a very nice tent camping area half way through. I took my time and enjoyed everything and it only took me 3 hours from entrance to exit.

Spent a weekend on the backpacking Trail with a 4-year-old and a 8-year-old. Lots of wildflowers, lots of points of interest. Good intro to overnight packing for them. Outhouse at the campsite, but no water so had to pack that in. Saw a bobcat in the morning, heard turkeys in the evening. Some good views, ruins of the mineral spa that used to be there, cliffs, stream crossings. Nice fun trail.
