Lake McMurty Trails

These are by far the best trails in Stillwater. The trails are not maintained as well as some would like, but they are always runable. What they lack in technical running they make up for in length. You have 2 trails on either side of the lake meaning you can connect trails for longer runs.

Isn't much of a hiking trip because how easy and flat the trails are but it was an awesome walk in the evening. We showed up around 430pm and didn't have much daylight left to walk around but we managed to get in around 4 miles before dark. We went on a Tuesday evening and we didn't see anyone.

Elk Mountain Trail

I took a group out to hike elk mountain a few weeks back during spring break. there was a decent crowd of people on the trail that day but I doubt its that populated on non-holidays. the campground at the trail head has some nice picnic areas and a couple of bathrooms (just don't expect that much out of them). The trail itself is a good trail. There is a spot or two that its easy to miss your turn, but its not hard to make your way back either. Once you reach the summit of the mountain, there's lots of exploring to be had as evidenced by the numerous worn paths that spread out from the main trail. definitely worth the hike.

Sparrowhawk Primitive Area Trail

It's always nice to find a trail like this that's perfect for a day hike with the kiddo and dog. Lots of gorgeous views to take in. Just challenging enough to get a good workout but not so strenuous that younger hikers can't complete it. There's plenty of offshoot trails so that you can spend a lot of time exploring. There were no water sources so we were glad we brought Camelbacks and plenty of snacks. All in all, an enjoyable little day trip.

Took my kids (6&12) to the Kite Trail. They loved it! It's not a loop, so be prepared to walk back. The scenery was beautiful, and the weather was great.

This is a nice family hike. The location includes some amazing picnic location too. The falls will be best just after or during a rain. Also think about going in the winter when the water freezes.

I really enjoyed winding in and out of the boulders, but watch your head. It was unfortunately a very short hike, and I don't remember seeing campgrounds. So it can only be a day hike. But they also have a visitor center where they provide interesting information about the area and some nice views considering the generally flat and bare topography of the region.

Oklahoma "Ankle Express" Trail

Went on an unseasonably comfortable day in late fall and ended up sleeping under the stars/ full moon. Didn't even need the tents. There were some strong wind gusts but we found a spot where the trees blocked the wind. It was an awesome night! The campgrounds were well kept, and I appreciated the access to a clean bathroom as well as a little store on the dock, where I was able to get some coffee. They also have cabins there at Greenleaf State Park which I would like to return to check out.

The hike was nice, a walk through the woods without any serious elevation gain. Though there were some short stretches that could make you short of breath. We didn't complete the whole trail, but I don't think the scenery was much to report on apart from the woods themselves. The view of the lake and terrain weren't remarkable.
