Lake Carl Blackwell (Orange Trail) is a 7.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Stillwater, Oklahoma that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Trail system is not well marked but not that hard to make your way around. Great day hike for those who loves woods, open area and the lake!
Good for a day hike. Muddy!!
Horse tracks were a little cumbersome. Some areas of the Yellow trail were not marked very well.
this trail is really beautiful once you get past the camping area by the lake. My group went in January, so the frozen horse tracks were a little tough on the feet. Amazing views of the lake and prairie type scenery. Definitely a good trail for a day trip.
Nice easy hike. We saw 2 deer and an armadillo. Good view of lake. Good trail to go with friends
Took the pink and white trail systems. Pink consisted of a dirt road access which had horse tracks causing a rough ride. Some areas were a little fun but overall, the trails were overgrown and unmanaged. Overall easy technically. Not a fan, would much prefer Lake McMurtry trails a few miles away.
overall, this is a really scenic and beautiful trail. definitely long enough for a day trip. my group had a lot of fun completing the trail. my only complaint would be that the first mile or so kind of sucks. tons of campers and stuff ruining the view.
