This is a nice gentle crushed granite trail up and back. I prefer something far more strenuous but I took my dad who has chronic arthritis but still loves the outdoors. Although he was still hurting, he loved this trail! The path is well maintained and is nice for all ages.

I almost stepped on a gorgeous Speckled King Snake (not poisonous) crossing toward the creek about a 1/4th way up. There’s a little switch back once you start to gain elevation toward the overlook. The overlook is a nice treat compared to most spots in Dallas/Fort Worth. Just sit and enjoy the breeze and views.

I have previously walked and hiked this in slightly rainy conditions and it was beautiful.

Great day trip from Plano.90 minutes to Mountains, whitewater (okay, brown water) , but rapids nonetheless. A great escape from the concrete jungle. Dog friendly,family friendly and love the large deciduous trees.

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.

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.

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!

Great trails, easy to moderate. I have lived within an hour of these trails most of my life and had never been until Saturday after Thanksgiving. The Bromide trail and the Bison trail are both well maintained and very scenic. We made about a 3 mile loop, going to the top of Bromide hill, then looping around the Bison trail. We all like to go hike different places, but don't forget those that are close to home as they may be a great hike. The trails are well marked and there are plenty of places to stop and rest, stick your feet in the water, or climb a few rocks.

Fun summer hike with a toddler. Very easy trail, well shaded. About half way to the Bromide Hill overlook, there is an area with easy access to the creek to cool off for a bit. Took us about 2 hours to do the out-and-back trail with lots of pit stops and rest stops.

The trail is actually named Bromide Hill and finding the trailhead was a little tricky. Once on the trail it was really cool with several springs and creeks. The majority is wooded and the trail is wide enough for kids and dogs. it wasn't a difficult hike so it's perfect for a family. After hiking to Bromide Hill we took the connecting Bison Point overlook trail and made a full loop. The Bison Point trail adds another mile and it has some great views of the river and the Bison herd. Overall it's a good family trail and great for cardio.

Loved loved this trail! Although the Chickasaw map does not show it as Cliffside Trail. They show it as Bromine Hill. Was a little confusing trying to find it. Beautiful though and nice uphills. Loved that the trails were so wide and nicely done no issue getting poison ivy. Will definitely come back here

Took my 7 year old and my girlfriend on a Sunday. Had an awesome time. Really good trails with great views of the water and easy access to the springs. We were there for about 4 hours but could have stayed longer!

Spectacle views. Wide trail which inclines. Also good for mountain bike. Once at top you have an opportunity to engage in a litte rock climbing. Natural springs run next to part of trail. You may sight some deer and walk along the buffalo preservation with small pond. This area has many trails throughout and natural springs along side many of these trails. Nature center with live "critters". Beautiful Arbuckle lake nearby to swim, boat and fish. I could go on about other things to do there like Arbuckle Wilderness, Turner Falls, camping, lodges, horse backriding, river canoeing... can I stop now? Love this area!
