Horse Thief Spring Trail

Great trail! Took a two night leisure hike, from the campground, up to the top of the mountain and back. There are a few springs along the trail but if it has been dry your water sources may be some what limited. The hike up the mountain was some what strenuous for this overweight hiker. The spring at the top of the trail where it intersects with the Ouchita Trail was not fresh and I would suggest not drinking.

Great hike! The start rides along the river/creek and then works its way up the "mountain". Trail is tough, narrow, and steep. Markings can be improved as we couldn't find our way past the high power electrical lines.

Oklahoma "Ankle Express" Trail

Pretty well maintained and fun. It was 96 degrees when we were there, so we only did the little spur from the state park to the swinging bridge and back (about 6 miles total). That was enough in the heat. Not too much in the way of elevation on that stretch, but I'm looking forward to overnighting the whole trail once the leaves are off. Maybe the rest of it will be a little more challenging.

Rocks make some sections a little technical, but overall a fun ride.

I love love love this trail. Its pretty short but its such a great view. Its a fun little "climb" to the top of the mountain. Saw a ton of mountain boomer lizards on that trail. Around 10 or less. I didn't see any snakes but it does look like a snakes paradise especially in the grassier area where the trail is narrow so be careful if you're going out in the morning or later in the day when its not too hot out.

Great trail. Pretty short but a really great view. Its definitely like climbing steps the whole way and theres not really any shade but its cooler and windy at the top usually. Bring a lot of water!

Waterfall is nice but was disappointed that you are not allowed to access the water anywhere in the park.

Trails marked at a few intersections but could be better marked along routes.
