Well marked trail. Good views. Grass was waist high in quite a few spots but can still easily follow the trail. Easy to get to. Excited to return when the leaves turn colors!

What a great hike! We also had the opportunity to see vultures perched down by the shore.

We hiked from the trailhead at the park to the swinging bridge and back. Overall, the trail was well marked, though some spots were overgrown. Be prepared to walk along Highway 10, which was very odd. Also, the swinging bridge was closed for maintenance, but we didn't know it until we crossed over to other side and read the sign on the locked gate. It would have been nice to put a sign on both sides, especially since it was deemed unsafe to cross. Other than that, it was enjoyable.

Lost the trail several times. Poorly maintained. There are several trails out here but who knows where they are or where they go

Have been many times. After the first steep part, the top is pretty level. You meet some nice folks but not usually a place to go for solitude. I have never been asked for my hunting/fishing license but looks like others have had to pay fines. For seniors, you can get a lifetime hunting/fishing license for a one-time fee; a lot cheaper than paying a fine.

Nice trail with some good ups and downs, but not well marked, especially at the top. I expected more views of the river, but there were only a couple. We both got bad chigger bites in spite of using bug spray. You definitely need a hunting/fishing/conservation pass. We got approached by a ranger.

Very poorly maintained. I actually lost the trail a couple of times since it was so overgrown. Not too difficult but very narrow and there are a few slick spots.

i love this trail. i run/walk here at least once a week, sometimes 4x a week. It's very rocky with a lot of tree covering. This is a nice trail to challenge yourself with.

Great trail, beautiful views. we saw several deer and lots of squirrels. Took us about 3 hrs to do the full 5 miles.

We went on trail 4. You have to walk down a gravel road before you get to the trail. Not much to see and if you follow the signs it takes you back to the gravel road. We ended up turning back.

Great trail. Can’t wait to complete the entire loop.

It was pretty tough but it was nice!

Nice long trail. We walked along Lake Overholster Drive from NW39th to NW10th. Sidewalk the whole way with the exception of walking out on the skinny strip of land that makes the little kayaking area. I would not consider this a "hiking" trail, it was a walking path through a park. Still nice though, I was just hoping to be a little more out in nature. We will probably go back when we're looking to walk a little bit of distance.

Lots of fun, clean trail, a little overgrown by the lake with tons of grasshoppers. didn't make it all the way to the south end, so I will have to come back later this week. saw a heron, a few lake birds, and a lizard. it rained last night, and the trail was damp, but no mud.

A little steep in a couple of places, but very pretty. my phone said 4.9 miles, not 3.9. At the very end I ran into a gigantic bunch of seed ticks though.

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!

We only had an hour to hike so we couldn’t do the whole trail but what we saw was beautiful.

Nice warm-up circuit. Some technical spots with a few features that are in need of slight repair.

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

Beautiful view but the trail was not well marked.

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.

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.

A Tulsa gem and a challenging hike. Bring lots of water or a camelpack when it's hot out.

Good easy trail Very well maintained

Great trail but very easy to get off on a different trail. They are marked but a bit confusing.

Hiked this with my daughter on 6-12-18 and used the West Scenic loop. Several areas where the blackberry’s and brush have overgrown the trail. Also some areas where trees have blocked the path and you have to work your way around. I also think some of the white tree markers were burned off and haven’t been remarked. I hiked this last year around the same time and it was in much better shape. I will do it again next year but definitely take a machete to hack through some of the brush.

Super fun trail and very doable for beginners.

I love this trail I have been on it many times. Just enough up and downs to get your blood pumping but not so bad you need a evac
