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.

Super simple. Gravel path the whole way. View is alright, just of the city of Sulfur.

Do it. Easy and you see how beautiful the state of Oklahoma is.and You start low and wide, and get to narrow high. The trail is maintained very well and is enjoyable.

Well maintained,steep, great view at summit

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.

Hike was absolutely beautiful! However, be careful right now. My dog and I were within inches of being bit by a rattlesnake. Just keep your eye out!

Well maintained trails

The Buffalo Springs / Antelope Springs Trail is easy and I would describe it as more of a walking trail. It is a 2 mile gravel trail approximately 6 feet wide. This trail is a must for any walker or hiker because the views are stunning. I will post pictures but it is difficult to capture the beauty due to the crystal clear water. There are 3 optional trails (Prairie Loop .6 miles, Oaks Trail .5 miles, and Dry Creek Loop 1.8 miles) which can be incorporated in this hike and offer a little more challenge. The park draws a big crowd on the summer weekends, visit on a weekday if your schedule allows.

Easy trail, clearly marked, clean bathrooms, beautiful scenery

Beautiful and not too difficult.
