Nice trail, it was a little overgrown on a few places that were a little more out of the way. There are snakes out there, we saw a baby rattlesnake that my husband almost stepped on... Over all, a nice hike, good distance, typical Oklahoma scenery.

This was 15 minutes off the main driving route. Crazy to think Vikings may have been to Eastern Oklahoma. The runes were covered by a covered bridge type structure and difficult to see thru the foggy plexiglass. The woods, leaves and waterfall were pretty but a bit of a detour. There was a nice bathroom, gift shop and friendly staff.

Nice easy trail with good views and access to the 40 Foot Hole. Rated only three stars because compared to the other trails at the Wichita Mountains (Elk Mountain Trail, the Narrows, etc.), it's just wasn't as exciting. Lot's of little side trails that take you closer by the creek.

Hiked with my 5 year old and he had no problem walking this trail. Took us about 2 and a half hours.

My husband and I had so much fun on this trail! There are plenty of large boulders to climb and see amazing views, rock formations, and two waterfalls. We took our time with this trail because we were enjoying going off the trail and doing our own thing.
There are multiple places where the trail is a little difficult to follow, and the trail map doesn't help a whole lot. Also, there are some places that would be very challenging for elderly people or children. Overall, so much fun!

Great trail to take kids on. Our 2 year old and 4 year old loved walking up the rocks.

Very good trail very easily distinguishable,
The trail had different smaller trails you could take that were a little more rugged that were optional that was great!

Easy trail...not sure why it’s a moderate. The waterfall was nice and the trail had some overgrown sections but fun anyway.

Awesome trail on a bike! Super fun! Plenty of terrain changes and the trail was well maintained for the most part. A couple of spots had tall grass and I was worried about ticks but I never found any on me. I definitely recommend it.

I started later in the day I wanted to...it got hot out there! I started from Sunset and took the trail south all the way to the Post Oaks trailhead. The trail was easy to follow to the boulder field and I saw two deer on the way. I didn’t realize there is supposed to be a trail around the right (west) side of the boulder field so I climbed over the boulders in the way down the trail. If you’re not careful you can slip and fall and get hurt, so make sure you stay within your abilities.

Once I left the boulder field the trail started to become hard to follow at times. There are a few side trails and no markings at all. I had a tool map and limited gps reception on my phone, so once I ended up off course for a way I would backtrack and find the right path. That turned out to be the theme of the day. I saw what I assume to be parts of a buffalo skeleton in a small creek. Once I neared the Post Oak falls the trail(s) kind of went all over the place. I knew if I continued to follow the creek downstream I would end up at the other trailhead.

Overall, this is a rewarding hike and it offers unique opportunities that you won’t get in other parts of Oklahoma. Make sure you’re familiar with the trail before you start and keep an eye out for the landmarks to remember where you’re headed!

Nice trail. Gorgeous view.

Beautiful and well designed trails.

The trails closest to the river are the easiest to follow. Some areas you kinda have to guess where to go but they all lead back to the same place. The trail is absolutely beautiful and has amazing views. We saw all ages of people hiking it and it was enjoyable. It took us about 3 hours to make it down the trail to the next trail head and back (that includes frequent breaks to take pictures and eat some snacks). I would definitely recommend this trail to anyone who is looking for a day hike with great scenery.

Heavy rains in Late Sept. had water levels up. The fall has died down in the past two days, but was still nice to see a rush falling. Creek levels are also up so be prepared to get your feet wet or rock hop a little more.

By this outlined trail, it’s very easy. You can take a more difficult path but should not unless you are experienced.

Lovely trail, really. Hubs and I never saw anything clearly marking the trail though, so maybe we didn’t really hike this one. I read the reviews and lots of folks say it’s marked, but we seriously only saw one white fence post with red spray paint that said “SLT”. That’s it. I also never saw anywhere to refill water, like another poster mentioned. We did get some beautiful views and pictures.

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.

This is a tough one (for me anyway). Long and lots of ups and downs. 1 full mile was a steady up hill clime. Beautiful sights though. My phone died with 4 miles left to go so map does not show all. It also says its a loop and it is but you must walk the road about 1 1/2 miles to get back to your car.

You would think your in Colorado. Great views, rock formations.

We camped at Dogwood campgrounds then jumped the road to start at Cedar Bluff then we took a right to finish the Skyline Trail. Amazingly marked except the last mile or so when it comes to a dead end at the power lines and then you pretty much keep going straight into some over your head grown grass but there is a trail in there that takes you back to the path. Be sure you will have plenty of water with a filter as it is has some pretty steep parts that make you work. We only came across one very nice campground about 4 miles in from Cedar Bluff start. A black bear did end up running us out of our campsite so they are there and please bring bear spray! We also walked the four mile road back to the campsite vs turning around and going back through the trail so keep that in mind also. Enjoy :)

Easy trail ; great reward at the end if the falls are flowing.

Poorly marked and overgrown in most places. No clear path after creek crossing.

Nice easy hike but nothing spectacular. I was the only one on the trail which was nice. Did this trail primarily because I made the trip to see the waterfall so why not hit this trail as well. The path was clear and easy to follow.

The waterfall is well worth the visit. Go early to beat the crowds. I was at the waterfall by 9 am then hiked some of the trails and on my way back it was busy, unless you like screaming kids and crowds then go for it. $5 park entrance fee. The trail is short but there are other trails in the park so if you can certainly hit those and spend several hours here. If you get the chance to go do so!

Beautiful!!!!

Hard as hell.

Nice trail with lots of trail fingers for exploring! My 9 and 5 year old cruised through this trail. Trail isn’t marked great but is easy to follow due to the traffic. Perfect for younger children!

Wonderful trail, beautiful but not crowded besides the last mile or so before the main park area. Some important things to know- there are plenty of water refill places along the entire trail, so don't waste water weight and carry a filter.
We started at what all trails calls the beginning (on the northern road) and never regretted our decision. Did some night hiking and saw tons of wildlife. The only thing I did not love about this trail was the lack of campsites (understandable, as most day-hike). Otherwise, 10/10. If you're looking for a remote, beautiful, and fairly hilly trail, this is it.

I’ve already hiked this once and can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. Bring plenty of water because you will need it.
@Ashley Allison- Hate to disagree with you but the trail is clearly marked (look at all the reviews) and it’s easy to follow as well. Perhaps you didn’t look hard enough.
