Nice trail moderately challenging. However don’t leave your vehicle unattended as mine was broken into along with another vehicle the day I was there.

Seems beautiful. Currently this trail and the shorter loop are closed. Drove out from Oklahoma. You might call the parks and ask before driving in.

The trail head was a little hard to find, and trail markings on general weren’t very good. It was a beautiful place!

Good day trail. Not much difficulty at all. A little rocky. Not much scenery for my liking. Take a pic of the trails or use the app, even though with signs, can get in a detour pretty easily. Well maintained. Just be careful of biker riders, you share the trails. If have the time, go do a good one at Devils Den,

Overall pretty easy hike except for the distance if you aren't used to it. The description says 6.7 miles but I followed the AllTrails map and it recorded 8.2 miles, not the 6.7 miles listed. There are several other trails that intersect so easy to get mixed up as to where you are. There are some really great spots on the trail with rock formations. This is a multi-use trail and with the weather so nice today there were a number of mountain bikers, hikers and a couple trail runners out as I was coming back. Plenty of parking. The trail is well maintained but there were a number of really muddy spots you may have to navigate around. Great hike that I enjoyed and with it being so close I will be back to check out some of the side trails I didn't hit today.

Lots of water which was nice, we got some sunshine and there weren’t many people out. There are some nice lookout points.

Relatively easy hike depending on the trail you go on. We just hiked up and walked along the ridge of the top of the mountain and came back down. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. There aren’t any sites to see (waterfalls, bluffs, etc) but it’s a nice walk through the woods! Keep an eye out for mountain bikers so you can step aside and let them pass easily. Great hike for all skill levels and easy for dogs!
