Great hike, lots of animals and critters to photograph. Stunning views, a bit hot. Misleading elevation, the trail has several climbs and descents. Made it in about 3hrs with multiple breaks and side missions lol. About 7mi hike in the end.

https://youtu.be/I0iYGRBHzCM One of my favorite trails I’ve ever run in Oklahoma. Check out the YouTube link if you want to see the trail in ideal conditions. I went on a Tuesday after it rained. I had a blast.

Great trail with loads of different sceneries to enjoy. When I think of the west, this is what comes to mind. Great little hike!

Beautiful views the entire trail. We saw lots of critters; 3 different kinds of snakes, tarantulas, tons of lizards. Pretty empty on a Wednesday, almost the whole trail to ourselves. 40 foot hole is gorgeous.

Great hike! We went after a thunderstorm so there was a lot of mud and water on the trail which we enjoy. There are tons of amazing views! We took our 8&5 year olds and they had a blast! Our kids are accustomed to hiking but I can see where some may not enjoy this long hike. I’d recommend bringing plenty of water and trail snacks to hold them over. We took a few breaks for them to enjoy the rocks and lakes so overall for the whole Bison Trail was about 5 hours (with young kids).

Great trail. We took a wrong turn and 5.5+ miles turned into 9 miles! As others have said, the scenery is grat and there are lots of opportunities to navigate off the main trail.

Great trail with great views - just hard to get to and find when on the park. You have to look for the Dog Run Hollow Trail System, and the trail will be marked there as “Buffalo Trail”

Great day on the Wichitas! Lots of flowers, everything green and fresh. Nice trail, muddy, but with nice views and a lot of water. Go early in the day. Later it gets hot and more crowded

In the beginning of the trail there are some overgrown areas. I'd recommend wearing pants. Also the day we went it rained in the morning so parts of trail was muddy. Be sure to wear good waterproof hiking boots! Our feet still got soaked since you have to go across little streams. There are big rocks you can step on... but i lost my balance and ended up stepping in the water. We did see a couple bison from a distance! Overall the trail is pretty easy and there's not much of an incline. We went during memorial day weekend and arrived at the trailhead around 9AM. By the time we got back to the trailhead around 12:30, there was barely any parking and was super crowded. Be sure to get there early!

That trail is closed right now (COVID-19)

Very pretty hike! I usually prefer trails where I can climb. But the scenery in this one definitely made up for the flatness in it. Do prepare for a lot of critters! There were lizards everywhere you look! It's also pretty long. So make sure you pack A LOT of water!

This is a great trail! The Wichita Mountains are amazing. Buffalo and Longhorns add to the experience. The one drawback is that there are rattlesnakes and they don’t always rattle before they bite so watch where you step.

Beautiful hike! Well worth the 6.7 miles. The plants are overgrown in some parts of the trail and will rub against your legs. Due to the recent rain, there was mud but it was easily avoidable. Would definitely hike it again.

Wear proper shoes and bring plenty of water. It’s a great hike that we love! Can be slippery and muddy after rain.

Amazing trail offering a variety of things to see. The parking area can fill up so made sure to be there early. I found the trail easy to follow and pretty easy. So much to see in the refuge!

Is this closed or open? I see it doesn’t say closed on here but life a hour and 35 away

Saw a ranger and asked why this trail was closed off because we wanted to see some waterfalls. However. We were told all the waterfalls were closed due to Covid-19. Not sure why that's one that get picked but there's that.

Beautiful trail, not too crowded on a Thursday. Saw a bunch of F-16’s flying overhead while we passed by Buffalo, Longhorn Steers and common collared lizards on the ground. Amazing views and great terrain.
