From I-44 take Highway 49 (exit 45). Go west 10 miles to the Refuge gate. If coming from Highway 62, take Highway 115 (Cache exit) north to the Refuge Gate.

Not too hard not too easy. Great view at the top!

Beautiful trail with some challenging steep parts. The view is worth it. Might be difficult for a novice to find their way BACK down the mountain and to the trail--would suggest spray paint or some way to mark your steps.

Wichita mountains are amazing. Great hike that presents a little challenge. The giant boulders are an amazing work of nature. Lots of fun to hop and climb.

I think this is some of the best hiking in the OKC area - only about an hour out. Very rocky trail, could be an ankle buster for some. About a 2 mile round trip. Parking and trail can be pretty busy on a nice day during peak times.
