A recreational-educational park that is accessible for hiking and picnicking from sunrise to sunset. Facilities include a restroom, pavilions, picnic areas, grills, public water supply, handicap trail to historical marker, and a hiking trail from base parking lot to the top of Cathedral Mountain and across the mesa to view the valley floor and Lone Peak Mountain. Points of interest include land geography, geological formations, Selenite gypsum, scenery and wildlife. This range is also known as the Glass Mountains.

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

Beautiful views from the top!

we loved it! it was beautiful and exhausting!

It is not a long hike but if you are around Gloss Mountains, it is a must do ! Not much other opportunity to clim up in OK.
The way up is the only effort as the top is a flat stroll.
Nice views and landscape.

Journey to the top consists of steep stairs and a bit of a scramble over some rocks. Amazing views along the short hike atop The Mesa.

We took off from piedmont stopping at Roman Nose and here on our way to Alabaster Caverns. It was a lot of fun. I wish it were longer. There are some very steep stairs at the beginning. Once you’re on top it’s beautiful views for miles. The area feels like New Mexico to me.

It only took my family, with a 7 and 4 year old, an hour to hike the whole thing. This includes posing for pictures.

If you’re passing through give this one a go.

Absolutely beautiful views, had so much fun hiking and walking the trail.

hiked just before sunset and enjoyed the stars and the beautiful sky colors

short trail but really pretty views. the land below is so flat you can see for miles

I'm terrified of heights so for me this hike and the steep stairs were no fun at all.

I was very glad we decided to stop here on our way back from Alabaster Caverns. This was a great short hike with beautiful views.

Very easy hiking. A short treck to the top of the mesa and then you can just wander around. Beautiful views!! Super windy!! We were there during the week for a couple of hours wandering and taking pictures and we didn't see anyone else the entire time. Just a couple of rattle snakes and lots of birds.

I only wish the trail had been longer!

Amazing scenery! Breath taking beauty to take in and watch the hawks circle and coyotes howl.

The trails and stairs are a bit overgrown with grass, but the views are fantastic! Takes about an hour to explore everything in the park.

Easy hike, stair steps are a little sketchy, it's a shame they fence off the best part at the top, but it's worth the stop if you need a break on your road trip! Really good for a day trip if you don't live too far away, which means like myself you live in the middle of mostly flat lands and barren trees.

Such a change of scenery from our home are on southern Oklahoma! The top part of the stairway was a little tough for our 4 year old but he made it.. the hollow sounds at the top were too cool

This is a relatively easy hike, but I give it five stars for it's views. The mesas span for miles, and it's well worth the stop if you're planning on hiking other trails in the area (Roman Nose State Park, for instance).

Decent compact area of mesas, but relatively speaking there's not a lot to see here. View from the top can oversee the area for miles, but it's all views of flat farmland and oil fields. Still, if passing through the area, I'd recommend a quick stop.

Did this hike right after a rain in late July. The weather was great and views were amazing. Some parts of the climb have wood planks that were a little slick from being wet. It is well worth the climb.

Awesome hike

great time

Only takes about an hour to do the whole trail but there is so many amazing views from the top of the Mesa that you might want to plan for at least 2 hours if you are going to stop and take photos. the only thing I can say bad about is that I just wish the trail was longer But all and all If you go by fairview you would be crazy not to stop and Hike this trail.

I've hiked this trail multiple times. I really appreciate the diverse nature of the area. It is truly unique. Getting to the top of the Mesa is not easy, but once you get on top you can walk all around with ease. Be sure to watch out for snakes! My only regret is that this park is not larger....

Worth the drive, there are a few other interesting areas other than the trail. a few small ponds to fish, scenic drive, sod house. Time it with a event in Fairview and make a whole day of it

I thought it was worth the trip from Oklahoma City. Several other stops nearby that I was able to fill a day with.

Small park with only 1 out and back trail.

Pro's: 1) Not busy (only saw two other groups on the trail all afternoon). 2) Beautiful views to the East, South, and West. 3) Only ~2 hours from OKC.

Con's: 1) North end closed off by fence, not sure if that is the beginning of private property or for safety reasons. This blocked the best views to the North and of Lone Peak. 2) Only one trail to the top, one way up & down, no trails around the mountain.

There is huge potential for this small State Park, but is a decent 1/2 day trip from OKC.

Great views of the surrounding desert and mountains. Steep climb to the top of the mesa but nice walk and views once their.
