My mother, aunt, and I did the Less Travelled trail at Keystone Ancient Forest. The trail itself was great. There were rocky sections and for most of the trail it was up and down hill. The trail itself is only 4.1 miles but we had to hike a short section of another trail from the parking lot to get to the trail head and the trail ends on the fire access road( which you have to walk on to get back to the trail head and back to the parking lot). The trail was well maintained, all the trails are clearly marked, and there are mile markers every .1 mile along the trail. We did get a few ticks crawling on us. Recommend getting there early on the days they are open because at the end of our hike the parking lot was packed. Overall, had a great time.

Limited hours and days. Schedule can be found at. http://sandspringsok.org/175/Keystone-Ancient-Forest

We enjoyed the hike today. In spite of the mud and having to back track a few times because the trail isn’t well marked. It rained yesterday so the mud is to be expected of course. There are several spur tails that will take you off the main trail and since there are few signs or trail markings you have to just guess which tail to take. Fortunately the spurs usually loop back to the main trail. There were a few wet creek crossings because of the recent rain. Over all we will be back for future outings.

full of ticks but otherwise ok

We didn’t have enough time today for the full hikes but will definitely be back!

love hiking the ancient trails

Ranger Trail plus secondary trail, for extra miles. Recommend picking up a free map at the Lake Keystone State Park Office, to navigate easier.

First walk, big hill to climb when on blue trail. n8ce view of ketone lake.

Easy, but pretty trail. Nice pond to walk around as well. Good warm up, for Two Rivers Trail.

After driving for several hours, my service dog and I needed a break. Ranger Trail was easy to find, and since it was a loop, we enjoyed seeing different sights along the short trail. It was a perfect diversion from the monotony of the car ride and easily accessible from I-40.

Did this trail with my 10 year old daughter today. Nice trail, easy to do. Great for kids. Beautiful rock formations and green moss everywhere, which was a welcome sight on this dreary day.

Nice walking trail. Mostly flat. Enjoyed a leisurely walk. Fascinated by the rock formations and had fun deciding what a few of them looked like. We parked at the Ranger Station and the only other people we saw were a family at the Children's Pond.

Easy, well-marked Trail. We hiked it leisurely in about an hour. Lots to look at like brooks, rocks, etc.

Nice, scenic, and versatile trail. I walked it with a toddler and 10 year old. They were super curious about the different rock formations and mushrooms growing on trees. Terrain varied slightly but was not difficult.

3.5 stars would be more accurate of my grade. Trails seem to have activity on them to help show where to go. The signage really needs help. We have gone twice. Once on the long loop and once on the short. Got lost twice and had to do a lot of doubling back. Properly marked trails would have prevented that.

Hiked counter clockwise on Sunday, clockwise on Monday. Both days logged more than 5 miles on Apple Watch. Weather was perfect. Trails not marked very well. Blazes need freshened up a bit. Saw very few people on the trail.

Drizzly day, very pleasant. Wilson trail is a steep, rocky, hilly one mile loop. It is accessed from another trail which is an easy meander through the woods. I recommend doing Wilson loop in the counter-clockwise direction. At about the 0.8 mile mark there is a really steep spot that would have been very difficult for me on the descent. I ascended those few feet on hands and knees. I never was a mountain goat, and the older I get the more careful I am. Definitely would do it again. I saw lots of tracks, mostly deer, but also armadillo and raccoon tracks. Lots of armadillo digs. The fire road, which I followed on the way back, is a good place to practice identifying tracks.

Just an easy walk. No spectacular scenery. But as always some interesting things along the way. There was a hair ball (series of connected hair balls) with a claw in it. I am not enough of a naturalist to know the difference between a raptor pellet and coyote scat. But I will go to the books later. I saw migrating Monarchs settling on low oak branches. Nothing like the migration through this area 20-25 years ago. I took a couple of pictures and wished them a safe journey.

Nice easy loop. On a cloudy Monday in late September I passed no other hikers. I did pass a nice tortoise. I parked at the kids fishing pond. There is a picnic table and shade.

Beautiful and very well maintained. I do wish they were open more often but understand why they aren’t. The guides were super friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back to try the harder trail.

Read the whole review! Trail is great. Lots of loops off for mountain bikers. If you do both and start left it’s just over 5 miles. But..... we were out here early on a Sunday and our truck window got broken out and some things were stolen. Broad daylight. Someone must have disturbed the thief bc a wallet and some cash were left and they took our extr ring of keys. If you come out here leave your windows down and nothing in the car, or be ready to tell 911 it’s Tulsa County and wait for a while while they transfer you and then send a deputy. .

Variety of terrain, wear pants (many ticks), neat mushrooms, no lake views, many additional loops, single file pathway, not well traversed, not busy

Great hiking for entire family and sometimes your furry kid

Nice little trail! Very well maintained!

Early in the season, and some trees are just beginning to put out leaves. I enjoyed the trail, and I think I only went about half way because of time constraints. Pleasant walking, some wildflowers in bloom. Quiet and comfortable. Not too challenging, but fine for beginners or occasional hikers. There were two different benches to rest at if one cares to. I took pictures and walked altogether for about an hour.

Great trail to keep you busy for a few hours...depending how fast you hike. I like to stop and take pictures and enjoy the views. We hiked 5 miles with total walk time a little over 2 hours. If you stop a lot along the way you can take up to 4-5 hours

Great hike. Had a 1 mile stretch called Wilson’s Trail that was semi difficult. Great views and the kiddos had a good time chasing little lizards around. Just wish their hours were better. Only 8-2 on Saturdays.l since volunteers help run it.

Trail was not marked/blazed, their are several trail paths to take, but none are "blazed" to let you know which one to take.

Nice length...signage SUCKS.

I would have given this trail four stars if the smaller of the two loops hadn't been completely overgrown on the 1.3 mile section listed. There's another trail called the "Ridge Trail" which is not on the map here, and is quite nice, but forked off a few times without adequate signage. While you're not in the WILDERNESS and can't really get too lost, it'd be nice if the State Park did a better job of signage and trail maintenance in spots. The first section does follow the road quite a bit, so keep that in mind, too.
