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

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.

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

Calling it a trail is a bit of a stretch, there’s definitely a trail at the very start but it quickly devolves into just finding a way up and then back down, mainly by climbing around on the boulders. Some precarious little areas depending on the route you take, which makes it even more fun. Definitely a workout and some great views along with it

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.

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.

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.

Trail is clearly marked! There are a few dry creek crossings where the trail is a little tricky to spot though. Make sure to grab a stick to knock down spider webs if you go in the morning.

Good for bird watching.

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

LOVED hiking this trail on and off! we went adventuring up and down the rockface and it was SO exhilarating with beautiful views, a couple of neat little caves and refreshing waters at the falls! also a big plus to have multiple options for camping! (cabins, tent, or rv)

Great trails

Loved the scenery, great for dogs.

One of my favorite places to ride. It starts on 10th and council and connects all the way to the OKC river where you can continue all the way to the boat house with dedicated trails and loop back for a 30mi ride if you choose. This section here is around 8mi each direction. It’s very secluded with lots of dress and is very nicely maintained .......hope they keep it up!
They are continuing to develop it making more access points all along the trail for people who live in different parts. You pass a couple of nice lakes making the hole trip very rewarding.

Bluff creek is a super convenient place to do a little single track riding. Terrain is pretty technical and twisty with quite a lot of roots that have been washed out.
The trail is around 4 miles and is a pretty decent workout. Takes around 25min to complete.
The local park surrounding it is amazing with paved running trails and a park for the kids. On Tuesday’s it’s pretty busy with a local kids mountain bike club meeting in the even nags Aron’s 6:30.
Over all it’s a safe and fantastic park to walk, ride, or bring your family for the afternoon.

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.

Great trail with plenty to see. Nice beginner trail for families who are starting out with hiking.

Beautiful scenery, did it with my 3 year old son and I’m pregnant. Took the wrong trail at times so I had to backtrack, they need to update the signs because 90% of them are broken. But such a fun and beautiful hike with birds singing, my son saw lots of bright lizards as well.

This is a nice gentle crushed granite trail up and back. I prefer something far more strenuous but I took my dad who has chronic arthritis but still loves the outdoors. Although he was still hurting, he loved this trail! The path is well maintained and is nice for all ages.

I almost stepped on a gorgeous Speckled King Snake (not poisonous) crossing toward the creek about a 1/4th way up. There’s a little switch back once you start to gain elevation toward the overlook. The overlook is a nice treat compared to most spots in Dallas/Fort Worth. Just sit and enjoy the breeze and views.

I have previously walked and hiked this in slightly rainy conditions and it was beautiful.

Kite trail is very enjoyable with the family, singles, or couples. The view is beautiful. It's a semi-long trail. You can climb or just follow the trail. It took us 3 1\2 hours to complete from beginning to end (including stop for lunch, and enjoying the view).

Good Day hike! I enjoy the views from this trail.

This trail is beautiful. However, you should were pants. There is a lot of high grass at the beginning. It is a lot of climbing if you would like to go up on the rocks. The trail is a challenge but enjoyable. I would recommend for adults and kids 10 or older (for climbing).

Beautiful trail. Fairly easy trail with little elevation gain. Hiked with my grandkids, ages 12, 10 and 8, they had no difficulties. Lots of Beautiful scenery and wildlife.

A satisfying walk in a beautiful part of the state. Lots of ups and downs, but nothing technically challenging. All you need is a water bottle with a filter—you’ll never be more than an hour or so of hiking from a stream or river to fill up. We brought water shoes, but we didn’t need them: the streams have easy places to cross without getting wet.

My one complaint is that the trail is not a full loop. You have to walk on the road for a mile and a half or so to connect the two ends (regardless of whether you do the northern loop or not—we didn’t think it’d be worth it because it seems to put you right next to the highway).

I brought my German Shepherd and she loved every minute. 9 miles took us 5 hours at what felt like a relaxed pace; I was surprised that my calves felt a bit sore that night from all the hills.

This was a great trail, but next time I go to Beaver’s Bend I think I’ll kayak instead!

Dirt road with no elevation changes. Good shade from the trees though - better than some of the sun exposed paved biking paths.
