Educational little hike right by the Washita Battlefield. The hike provides great insight to the prairie settlers home sites, as well as the importance of prairie fires on the growth of prairie grasslands. Along the trail there is an example of a settler home, which was more of a mud hovel. Also on the trail were three plots of prairie grass illustrating the impact of grass fires-the first plot burned in the last year, the second plot two years ago and the final plot three years ago with the plot burned three year ago being full and lush.

nice walk around grounds showing prairie, dugout cabin, etc. Visitor center has great info film on battlefield. Be sure and do the battlefield hike, just up the road.
