Built in 1975 by the YCC, a group of high school students, the climb is a display of the stark beauty of Southwestern Oklahoma. On top, the view of Lake Altus-Lugert is stunning.

Not meant to hike during temperatures of 95 degrees and up. But it’s a beautiful view during the entire hike up!

Great little hike not much of a trail to follow mostly just climbing and jumping from boulder to boulder.

Climbing the boulders didn't look too hard until you get up half way haha. Challenging but the view from the top made it worth it. We went in May 2017 while visiting our daughter in OK. Great time and awesome view

Great mountains in OK! Worth the drive. We only went on the new horizon trail but looked like there were many trails available there, like previous comments said its not really marked that well but here that is okay! Wichita mountains were a disappointment to us with trails leading us to no where. But the views here are great. Perfect amount of challenge but still easy enough for the whole family.... We will be back!

As stated in the previous reviews, once into the trail there are no markers that I noticed. It really does not matter. Find your own path. It makes the hike more interesting. It is a nice, short route. I enjoyed the views at the top. Trailhead is marked well with good parking. The park is very nice. Recommend the lake view rooms at the lodge. Enjoy.

Very fun little hike, especially if you only have a couple hours. Virtually no trail markings, other than trafficked paths. Leaves a lot up to the hiker, which I like. Lots of rock crawling.

Our first hike! It was good for a first one! We wish it had some sort of marker system, but we are so green to hiking that I'm sure it's a low priority.

Cool hike for an afternoon. Great views at the top. The trail was pretty much nonexistent after the first few hundred feet. We stumbled across a few short posts in the ground but any signs indicating which way you were supposed to go were long gone. Any way you get to the top you will have to climb over boulders so it can be a challenging hike for some. Didn't see any snakes but it definitely seemed like prime snake territory.

I have hiked this trail a couple of times and it is a good hike to get started on if you are new to hiking. For the most part the trail is easily followed but some parts are not well marked. Wear good shoes and take water and cell phone for emergency use.

One thing to note is you will need to stay alert for snakes. There are lots of rocks for them to hide under on the trail.
