Well marked, very clean trail. I love it and have done the trail several times.

There are actually several trails at Lake McMurtry. This particular trail is the "Red" trail. There is also the yellow trail, the blue trail and the orange trail.
Nice trails through woods and meadows. Wildlife can often be seen. This particular trip we saw a deer, 2 armadillos, numerous lizards, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, only 1 tick, and 0 snakes. Still has some wildflowers which would most likely be plentiful earlier in the season.
It is a shared trail with mountain bikes but, the few we came across (4 or 5) were very courteous & friendly and the trail is in great shape for hiking.
Easy to moderate trail run.
Great place to mountain bike. Some technical spots. Spent the afternoon kayaking
Hiked blue trail. Easy and pretty! Watch out for fast moving bicycles!!!
We love it out here at Lake McMurtry! Great trails, great people, and lots to do. We usually stick to hiking the trails here. Just completed The Orange Trail today. Despite the noise from the nearby gun range we spotted a rabbit, and a deer deep into the hike. Wasn't fast enough to get photos of them though. Was a great hike, and will hit The Blue Trail soon. We've done the Yellow and Red Trails over on the east side previously. Those are great trails too!
This is a fun quick excursion an hour or so away from OKC. I'd classify it as a day trip location for people who are new to hiking. The camping is pretty typical, and OSU students frequent the location making it less than quiet. There is a solid primitive campsite with fantastic tree coverage, great access to the river, grassy knolls, and plenty of space for a (very) large group.
