A fun place to visit with plenty of trails to hike. Lots of wildlife to see: prairie dogs, bison, Longhorns, etc.

As others have said, this is just a road. The views are pretty, and you can go off the road up the boulders, etc. Some good photo ops.

I enjoyed the trail. I suggest coming early on weekends because they let cars come through in the after noon.

Extremely disappointing. This is just a two way road, not a hiking trail by any means. Pretty view at the top, but that’s it. If you’re looking to actually hike, this is not a good location.

It was great, definitely recommend going or beginning no later than 10 so you won’t have the car traffic that begins at noon.

Great day for a hike! Beautiful weather and path is paved to the top for hikers and drivers. Be sure to read signs for when it’s okay to hike!

It’s a nice uphill climb on a paved road! With this heat it’s better to go early in the morning plus the road opens at noon on the weekends

This is Not a hiking trail It IS a great walk 2.77 miles up the road that never flattens out. Folks use it for a variety of workouts. Running, walking, biking, and yes a good backpacking warm up. But it is more than that because the views as you go up and around the mountain constantly change and are beautiful. With very limited car traffic the roads are largely protected for foot traffic the majority of the week. For that reasons even families with small children are making the hike. BTW: the rest of the Wichita Wildlife Refuge has so much more to offer to make the trip to this part of our state a very worthwhile experience. While you are in the area try a MEERS Burger in Nearby Meers,Ok or some great food in the quaint little town of Medicine Park.

HikingOff trail

I took the boulder field most of the way to the top and really enjoyed the challenge. I was able to boulder most of it and got into very limited brush/grass. Once I hit the road, I stayed on it up and then down. Weekdays (Mon-Thurs) you share the road with cars. Most drivers are courteous, but had one come zipping around. Stay aware! I've hiked/ran this trail many times. Always enjoy it and the view at the top.

First time to hike, lots of elevation, make sure to bring water and sunscreen in this heat. Almost got to hot. Recommend to do it early as you can. Beautiful views make it worth the two hour drive to hike.
