One of my favorite Oklahoma hikes. It's a nice climb to the peak of Elk Mt with a great payout. I've hiked this trail with a 9 and 10 year old with no issues (other than complaining). .
One you summit, there is also the option to continue off-trail for some bouldering.
Although the hike is mostly an ascent, the trail is well-maintained.

The trails are not clearly marked so get ready for a fun adventure to the top! the view from up is breath taking

The trail is steep in places. It is beautiful at the top. You can stay on the flatter part and go all the way to the west side of mtn then when the mtn starts sloping down again you can get to the apple and the pear on the west side of mtn.

Absolutely Stunning! Found an old mine at the top of Elk Mountain Trail that a Park Ranger told my group and I about! Anyone Else find it?

Great hike! We haven't been on many but this one was nicely marked and challenging enough at times. For novice hikers we would recommend it!

Great hike, totally different place when it's covered by clouds.
