Started off the new year proper with a family hike!! This was also the first hike of our #52hikechallenge for 2019 and we can’t wait for the adventures ahead. New Year’s Day was a cold one and we only got about a mile of hiking in, but we brought hot chocolate and dressed in layers so we had a blast! We will definitely be back to explore the rest of the trails and look for rose rocks. (Lake Thunderbird is a great place to find them)

Hiked 7.5 miles 12/30/18 started the green loop then went on to the yellow and red loops. They are not marked well so go in with a trail map and gps. Otherwise great hike and view of the lake at the tip of the red trail. The trails are not maintained by the park itself but rather the Bicycle League of Norman which is where you can acquire the most recent map of the trails.

Not many people here until afternoon. Stayed on blue and red trails. Well maintained and clear. Nice trail close to the lake. We saw ~9 deer, 2 armadillo and a dead opossum. Of course the trails are many and not marked well. Bring your GPS for a stress free enjoyable day of exploring.

Unless you are riding with a local don’t even waste your time going to this place. It’s a total clusterf...k of unmarked trails that crisscross over each other for no apparent reason. The trails in and if themselves are okay, but there are better places to ride trust me.

My brother and I walked this trail on a cool Fall day when the leaves were still turning and it was very pretty! The trail was well-marked with white stripes painted on some of the trees and there were at least two places along the trail with flush toilets! We were there on a Monday and although we saw many campers, we only saw one other person on the trail.
It is my opinion, if you go hiking here, bring water, snacks, your camera, and a walking stick.

We didn’t have time to do the entire trail but the half we did was great. We started from Buzzards Roost. The trail is hard to find and doesn’t show up on All Trails map. It’s near an abandoned structure. The trail was well marked otherwise. Our three dogs enjoyed it and the many opportunities to get a dip in the lake.

Good experience! No ticks but we got chiggers. Dog loved it. Got a bit lost the trail markers are not very helpful, thank goodness for GPS. Will definitely use again.

There are seed ticks! You will get hundreds or so on you! Otherwise great trail, well maintained, the dogs had fun.

There were tons of tiny ticks. Bring lots of bug spray and water. This trail took about 2 miles an hour due to all the twists and turns. It's very easy to get going in the wrong direction. Parts of the trail are hard to determine if you are on the right one. There are so many trails to choose from. I will definitely go back in the fall once the tick have gone.

ticks were TERRIBLE even with Deet spray. great trail tho.

This was a great well maintained easy trail.
On the drive home we noticed hundreds of seed ticks on us. Please heed the tick warnings for July 2018!!

Holy ticks!!!! We would be back if it wasn’t for the ticks. May try again when it’s cooler. That many ticks just wasn’t worth it.

go 0.3 miles east of the parking lot to get to the start of the trail. saw lots of deer, only had 1 tick. great, easy trail for me and my dog.

I love these trails for close to home hiking/running, but tend to stay away during the summer months due to ticks/chiggers. The few times I’ve ventured on these trails between May and September I’ve returned home with a ridiculous amount of ticks. I frequent these trails December thru March with much less of a tick problem.

needs to be cleared out lots ove overhang and a tremendous amount of ticks. if you come bring some high deet spray . I had over 100 tick bites using 40% deet. trails are really fun and the the plaid trail is very fast and flowy.

only one section of the trial is nice, the rest is walking down the road.

Good, easy trail. Me and my wife each got one tick on us. Other than that, not bad. Fairly pretty.

Easy trail. To many ticks.

Walked the trail with my husband and 18 month old. Got a little lost and ended up on the red trail for a while before we realized what was going on. Still had a great, relaxing time. Came home with a fair amount of ticks on us.

An easy, well marked in and out in the Wood. Nothing specific about it. Can be done in mountain bike and trail running too.
FYI, the map shows a service road a bit further west of the trail.

Love this trail! I recommend going early in the spring because the ticks and chiggers are AWFUL out here during the hot summer months. These trails can be mixed and matched for different lengths depending on what you’re wanting. But have a map with you because it’s very easy to turn a 3 mile hike into a MUCH longer hike with one wrong turn. Watch out for mountain bikers! They have the right of way. There are lots of sandy areas along the trails so wear proper shoes or it’ll be like you came back from the beach.

First part of the trail is nice, but the last half is not. It is basically paved road. The coyotes at the nature center are pretty. They also have a pretty eagle.

Great for a good morning hike. Trails maintained nicely.

Rode the red loop close to sunset, and got lost for a few extra miles on some easier loops. Trails look to be in good shape, but sunlight is a must for the red trail..

lots of options for distance and direction or one long day on the trails. the trail is narrow and there were a lot of bikers out the day we were there, we spent a lot of time jumping out of the way to let them pass.
