Getting There

This trails ends at a small waterfall in a little canyon with a calm pool of water. It's an easy hike, but make sure to go just after a recent rain so the waterfall is running real well. A moderately hard trek with some rolling hills along the way. Trail was not clearly marked and a little difficult to decide which one to take when it split. It looked like most of the trails you could take all converged about 1.25 mi. into the hike where there was a sign pointing to Post Oak Falls. Beautiful views of Treasure Lake and rock formations. Take a bottle of water per person and sturdy shoes.

There are no facilities here. Please pack in extra water, and pack out any waste. Use restrooms before coming please.

Best time to go is in early summer after a good rain. The Waterfall can freeze in the winter, becoming one of Oklahoma's classic ice climbs.

From the Wichita Mountains Visitor Center, drive west. Turn south at Refuge Headquarters and follow the road around for 2.5 miles to the clearly marked Post Oak turn off. Turn north here to access the parking area and trailhead.

Lots of different terrain which made it fun. Couple cool water falls. Boulders to climb with very steep drop offs. Lots of brush along the path so pants and long sleeves are helpful. Hard to follow trail sometimes. No cell reception so down load your map before coming to the park.

We weren’t able to complete the trail we wanted to take. We didn’t have footwear with enough traction. But what we did see was beautiful!

Had a good time exploring this trail Saturday. Took the route up the caynon going to the falls but came back on the easier trail. I will be going back again to this location.

Nice trail and nice waterfall at the end. Fun to (carefully!) explore the rocks around the falls.

HikingGreat!

We had a great experience ! weather was perfect, and wind was not blowing too hard. by far one of my favorite spots to hike so far in Oklahoma . Driving all the way there is worth it.

Lovely hike but can get difficult in some spots where you have to scramble over rocks. Still my dog and some small kids I saw were able to manage just fine. Make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen! On the way to the falls I took a lower trail along the creek and while AllTrails kept saying I was off the trail it still led to the falls. However it was much longer than taking the recommended trail. I ended up going two miles total there and back.
