Chickasaw National Recreation Area is in southcentral Oklahoma, between Dallas, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Chickasaw National Recreation Area was originally authorized in 1902 as Sulphur Springs Reservation and was renamed and redesignated as Platt National Park in 1906. In 1976, Platt National Park, Arbuckle National Recreation Area, and additional lands were combined to establish Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

It was a beautiful day. The leaves are turning and falling. The trail can be steep in parts, but it is a really fun hike up. It was a pretty busy trail that day. We took the Bison Pasture Loop after to finish.

This trail is beautiful and pleasant. There is a gorgeous waterfall or unique stone bridge every few steps! This is a trail I will revisit for years to come!

Buffalo Pasture trail can be done separately or can be combined with the Bromide trail. It is a gravel loop that have several viewpoints where one can hope to see the buffalo herd. You also pass a couple of the springs the area is famous for.
