Great short drive up the paved road and even better during a winter/overcast day to get that foggy view!

Beautiful hike, but signage was awful and nonexistent in some spots. We started from the southern trailhead, and the trail disappears almost immediately over the rocks. Find the easiest way down and you should be able to figure out where the trail picks up from there. The trail forks not long after that with no signage to indicate which way is which (there was a wooden post that may have been a sign at one point) - after some backtracking and head-scratching, we figured out the left fork is the main trail and the right joins back up to the main trail at some point, but is much more strenuous and hard to follow. At this point we came across a dead bison right alongside the trail that smelled like it had been there for a couple days at least. Not long after the main trail comes to another fork with no signs. Not sure where the left fork goes, but we went right and that ended up being the correct way. Very soon after that is another intersection that confused us for a long time. The rightmost trail goes to Post Oak Falls and the main trail continues along the creek, with another third trail branching off between the two that wasn't marked and we didn't explore but seemed to go up the ridge above the creek. The main trail seems to dead-end at a small trickling waterfall that may be confused as Post Oak Falls (we did at first), but you actually have to climb over the waterfall to continue the trail- I can see where this might confuse and turn away some hikers. The trail is a little hard to follow here but just continue along the creek until the trail becomes easier to see. There was another sign in this area that was broken and swinging around on one pole, so we had no idea which way it was supposed to be facing- you should be able to see Crab Eyes from here, just head in that direction into the boulder field. This was the funnest part of the hike, with a lot of small caves to explore. You have to scramble for a bit to continue along the trail, and try to remember where you exited as it's not clear on the way back. The trail after this was easy and well-marked all the way to the Sunset Trailhead.

Good trail. More challenging than expected.

Great trail for families. 7-11 year olds did great.

Great trail--not for the faint of heart! Worth every uphill trek though. Be prepared for some jaw dropping views. Allot plenty of time. Take plenty of water (1 bottle is NOT going to cut it) and snacks for breaks along the way. Great for a long afternoon hike. Did this one with my boyfriend and it was a romantic get away with an adventurous twist!

Definitely not worth the 4 hour drive but not a total disappointment. Trails are well marked and maintained and take you through wooded hills. Creeks, sandstone bluffs and the lake. Super low key which is always a bonus.

Awesome trail. Great fun for the kids. One big natural playground.

Short but fun trail

Really nice. My son and I did it in 3.5 hours. He's 14. We definitely enjoyed it, but I could easily see taking a lot longer with the hike and exploring a bit more. It is a solid hike with plenty of elevation gain and loss. Rarely flat, but really pretty. Bee Creek hung us up just a bit with the crossings. Otherwise, very easy trail to follow. We parked and started at Dogwood, but will park at the washed out bridge next time. Of note, the washed out bridge is being rebuilt.

Pretty flat, easy hike. Portions near lake were flooded but easy to hike around.

I thought the trail was great. Spooked 4 deer that were bedded down along the trail. The trails are very well maintained.

Easy hike, wish the tower was open and able to get inside for the view.

A fun and somewhat difficult trail. My husband and I enjoyed the hike much more than the others in our group (6 people total) only because they were not prepared for the distance or the difficulty level. Took us about 7-8 hours to finish. Lot of up/down elevation changes, which can be brutal on the legs, but a great hike nonetheless!! Will definitely do it again!

It was an extremely pretty trail. Great views, friendly folks, and an overall nice experience. The trail can be a bit hard to follow in some places, but it was well worth it.

Gorgeous trail with minimal noise, save the occasional powerboat. The trail with "Fossils" labeled on it cuts really close to the water; I hiked after a few solid days of rain, and my shoes were pretty wet. Then the trail disappeared into the water toward the end; it would have been possible to scramble up if I hadn't had a 35lb pack on with my son it it :) I recommend doing this hike when the lake is lower. The fossils in the rocks by the lake's edge were super cool.

This was a very enjoyable hike we did with our 23 month old in a pack.. The terrain goes from rocky to grassland to woodlands. However the Bison Trail is 8 not 6 miles. We cut off some of the bison trail by taking the Longhorn Trail where they intersect then getting back on the Bison trail on the other side... That was 7 miles exactly,
We did not see any buffalo except for two dead ones on the trail, however in our drive in and our drive out we say multiples, along with turkey, longhorn, multiple migrant birds.

Great Trail and will go back again.

Nice trail, nice bridges, but just slightly lacking in scenery.

Short trail- more like one mile if you walk the whole thing and not just along the water. Beautiful views, lots of rock scrambling, and awesome fossils! Not a good trail for kids or people with trouble walking as you do have to scramble up rocks and it can be very slippery. As a reminder- it is a felony to remove fossils or artifacts from federal and state lands!

Great trail and the boulder climbs were awesome. I recommend gloves if you're going to enjoy the boulders.

Educational little hike right by the Washita Battlefield. The hike provides great insight to the prairie settlers home sites, as well as the importance of prairie fires on the growth of prairie grasslands. Along the trail there is an example of a settler home, which was more of a mud hovel. Also on the trail were three plots of prairie grass illustrating the impact of grass fires-the first plot burned in the last year, the second plot two years ago and the final plot three years ago with the plot burned three year ago being full and lush.

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

Super simple. Gravel path the whole way. View is alright, just of the city of Sulfur.

Quick and easy trail in the middle of town. It’s clear from the active construction throughout the trail that more improvements are on the way. Gravel/paved the whole way and it’s fairly easy with a baby stroller.

Take a left at the bottom of the steep incline to loopback around to the visitor center. This was not clearly marked. Do not cross the creek. It’s a great trail, we enjoyed it

Temperatures were low and winds high but we enjoyed the hike. We didn't follow the trail as marked n hiked along the stream instead.

Do it. Easy and you see how beautiful the state of Oklahoma is.and You start low and wide, and get to narrow high. The trail is maintained very well and is enjoyable.

It’s not true trail running it road running but if you start early on a clear day the sunrise is amazing.
