I have lived here for almost two years and just discovered this gem. Always heard about it, driven over the bridge a million times. I hiked the trail today, sort of. I don't like sidewalks so I hiked lakeside as much as I could! Lots of nice places to sit and rest. I'm a fan! I will be back alot since it is so close to home!

5 yr. old: my favorite part was all the trees and the lake. The walking trail was super great!

Great way to kill a few hours and the view is pretty all the way around.

I’ve walked the trail to the north and the SW service road and both are neat but otherwise boring. I mostly go walking off road into the refuge itself. Far more to see, some awesome trees to be found and the occasional deer, turkey, or pig can be seen. Overall not a bad spot, needs to be burned to clear out old dead tree litter and leaf build up and get more food for wildlife, but being so nestled in the city that’ll never happen. Waterway is popular with kayakers and paddle boarders.

Across the street from my neighborhood, I use the garden and nearby park for running and walking the dogs. The gardens are very popular with photographers and Pokémon Go players.

Dogs and I come all the time to walk the bike trails and the paved trails. Occasionally we cross the street behind the fish hatchery and wander around over there in the tall grass, maybe chase a fee deer. Love this park with it being tight in town!

It's not well marked. But it even warns you ahead of time. I'm pretty sure I was off the trail within the first five minutes. But was a lot of fun. Looking forward to going back.

A fun, easy trail that is beautiful and relaxing to walk. Walked with kids and they had no trouble. Would definitely do it again.

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.

Amazing trail run. I only did the southern loop which ended up being longer than I had guessed (8.5 miles). Lots of vertical (1900+ according to Strava) and a bunch of options to stop and cool off in cool running water. Well marked most of the time, there are just a few short stretches where it’s a tad tough to follow. I only saw 4 other people during the whole loop. I’d come back again to this area just to run this trail.

Great hike. With the switchback we hiked 6.0 miles. The switchback is real slim with overgrown areas but beautiful. Over all. Great trail system. 5/5

I love this trail. This is a great trail to ride on weeknights.

HOLY TICKS!!!!!!!!!!! This place is festering with ticks; I would not walk this trail by any means again. Found about twenty small ticks and two large ticks after hiking here

Gorgeous, easy trail. There are some rocks to climb and water to play in along the way. Fairly trafficked, and lots of trash honestly. I carried a lot of what I came across out with me.

What a gem tucked away in Oklahoma. I traveled to Lawton for work and found this trail. I was able to hike to the top and back in just under 2.5 hours, although I wanted to keep going. I was racing the sunset since I ventured out after 5p that day. When you get to the top of the trail you can see for miles, and you wouldn’t know at the trail head, but there are some really beautiful rock formations you can explore and climb once you get to the top. Very much wanted to spend more time on this trail.

Beautiful views from the top!

Some climbs. Rocks and path are beautiful. Fully shaded and the views are worth it! Toddler and dog (on leash) both did great.

Great trail. Took the dog and a toddler without issue.

Great trail with a special bonus down by the river. A Native American Trail marker tree is along the trail. It has no special signs to identify it, but it is obvious if you look around.

This is a great hike. The trail is very clearly marked and the scenery is fantastic. I'm looking forward to going back and trying other trails.

Nice easy trail. Great way to start a day at Lake Murray.

The views while walking along this ravine the trail follows was beautiful, but having no shade made this hike very difficult, especially since it was during summer. Pay close attention to the trail because the markings is a bit off and can get confusing. If you get lost just walk along the creek and you should meet back with the trail in no time.

quite a bit of trash and heavily trafficked

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.

Nice, scenic trail. Perfect for birders. Spotted a painted bunting, a Carolina wren, a Mississippi kite, a brown thrasher, and a meadow lark during my hike. There’s a short adjacent trail that leads west of the tower, but it stops at some boulders and does not appear to go farther. It was a nice add-on, though. This trail is great for beginners, children, and dogs.

Great hike with kids we even saw the bison!

This was a very easy trail. It was very clean and easy to follow. The only way you would get confused on this trail is if you did not look at the map at all. There are a few entrances to the trail, but these are all marked. Good views on the side that goes along the lake.

Great time with our 13 & 11 yr old and golden retriever. Some parts were a little steep for younger daughter. We saw squirrels and deer. A couple spots make good photo oops.

Great trail with skill levels for everyone. The trailhead is a bit hidden off to the left and down the hill as you enter the park. Dense forest with little breeze so go early.

Even though it was crazy hot during our hike it was still amazing, there are a lot of signs for snakes so please be careful, you will be hiking both up and down hill a lot though more up then down it seems like but the hike to the top although difficult turned out to be very beautiful if you go on a hot day please please please bring Lots of water. It’s very nice and has two lakes and great views there is wildlife and a lot of cactus so watch out.
