This is a fun trail but the north loop is pretty much not even a trail. It is very well marked though. Be prepared to crawl over a bunch of downed trees or walk around if possible. Overall I had a good time. Very secluded on the north loop.

This is actually several small trails that connect to form one mega trail. The smaller trails are less than a mile each. I did the archaeology and kid-friendly trails which totaled one mile; both were paved. Great views which included native grasslands, river, and lake. As a reminder- it is a felony to remove artifacts from federal and state lands!

Got caught in a light rain while hiking this trail. steady climb ay the beginning.

We go every other weekend to get outdoors. There aren’t stunning views, sometimes it’s over crowded and the trails are really popular with mountain bikers but it’s still a good place to get out with the family and the dog for a few hours.

Good trail with some tough parts to challenge you.

The trail can be a bit rocky but nothing too extreme. Saw several bison on the trail. I can't wait to explore the other trails in the park.

nice walk. rocky in parts (watch your step). Good overlook of the water treatment plant

I’m from Colorado, so if I’m comparing it to hiking there it’s not the greatest. Umm but if you haven’t done anything there and you have just done stuff here it’s ok. Seems more for bikes than just hiking. Not good views, and just trees. Also it’s pretty crowded here

Enjoyable Trail. I spent half a day on this trail and encountered 3 Longhorn and a deer. Some parts have a sudden “raise” in elevation, but i don’t seen it as a problem to beginners. Trail got a little hard to read near the Lost Dam, but other than that I loved it.

I had an awesome day today. I hiked 8 miles of the Ouachita Trail from Talimena State Park to Deadmans Gap. I then backtracked and took the Bohannon trail to the Chickasaw Nation Trail which I followed back to Talimena State Park. I was on trail for 20 miles and had an elevation change of 2,864 feet. I completed the last 3.5 miles in the dark with light rain. The Ouachita Trail was in great shape and well marked. The Bohannon and Chickasaw Nation Trails will test your navigation skills. The short walk off trail to Panorama Vista is a must, the view should not be missed.

A bit rough on the ascent as this portion of the Ouachita Trail goes up 541 ft. at a pretty steep incline. Great to get the heart pumping. It probably should be noted as hard, outstanding views on the way up, if you go all the way to the two peaks you can get 360 degree views in the winter. There are other easier trails that lead away from Winding Stair National Recreation Area, this one is good to get the heart rate up.

Turkey mountain is a beautiful place to go hike get outside get some fresh air and see nature bald eagles hike along the river. very nice place and dogs are welcome.

Beautiful views. Would definitely go back.

Saw 3 armadillas and at least 1 deer. Not hugely scenic but by no means ugly. The nearby gun range keeps it from being very peaceful though.

I attend college in Tahlequah and use Sparrowhawk as my own little get away. The trail has awesome views with a sweet hammocking spot on the cliff. Make sure you have a hunting or fishing license.

Great trail with special scenic areas which you can spend a lot of time exploring. Recommend hiking clockwise.

This could be a very nice park. Unfortunately, the highway noise, refinery across the river, and graffiti EVERYWHERE ruin what could otherwise be a nice experience.

It's a beautiful area and the trails are layed out well with a few nice overlooks and some rough terrain. If you're heading out for some exercise or just looking for a quick place to walk the dogs or ride your bike, this is a good place. However, if you're wanting an escape from the city, I'd recommend finding another place.

Awesome trail in my home town. Did the round trip twice to get a great cardio / mental workout. Good for kids too. I'll be starting mine on this trail.

as a newbie to hiking this trail kicked my butt, its a rocky terrain and my feet and ankles were done in. the scenery was beautiful. We will be back now that we've had more experience.

Can get a little crowded so a safer trail in an urban area. The inclines are short and smooth. Great views with cool rock formations, old tree and river views.

Marked well, trail is easy, and beautiful during the leaf change.

Great trail with diverse terrain.

With the assistance of this app I was able to figure out where to go on the yellow trail. It was a lot of fun and had restrooms. I had to backtrack a couple of times.

Love this park and trail. Be aware that most of the trail is frequently closed in fall due to hunting season. I recommend calling ahead to check before planning on hiking the full 18 miles.

easy trail to hike with lots to see. Very rocky so wear good supportive shoes. My 6 year old had no problem hiking this trail. Online it says its 6 miles but the signs on the trail itself say 8 miles so not exactly sure how long it is. some parts of the trail are hard to follow and you can easily get off track if you are not careful. cant wait to go back and hike the opposite direction.

great trail in the fall. very place. gorgeous campgrounds
