Bison Trail

My wife and I hiked this area on 9/13/14. We started at the Kite trail, crossed over at the damn and took on the Bison trail! Made for an amazing adventure and an absolutely beautiful hike.

Be warned though there are a few spots that the trail seems to just end. We got a little lost a few times but were able to find our way back onto the trail no problem. Even came across a sleeping buffalo just 30 feet off the trail!

Bison/Elk Trail Loop - Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

The 'Track' shown is nowhere near the Bison Trail. The location shown on this app is by Mount Scott, while the real Bison Trail is about 6 miles west.

As for the trail, it's an easy hike, well defined trail. Be weary of the bison and longhorns.

Will be going back again! Was a bit disappointed that some of the trails did not loop back around, but overall it was a great time! Some of the trails are easy, and some are for skilled hikers. Signs are posted outside some of the trails warning you of the level of difficulty.

Narrows Trail to Boulder Mountain (Eagle Mountain) - Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

Awesome hike! Being from Appalachia I'm not used to so much exposed granite rock. A friend and I went up to the (almost top) of Eagle Mountain and then down into the fjord to the rock that looks like a gigantic tree stump from far away. The trail disappears at parts so you just have to create your own. This hike sn't for the faint of heart! Lots of steep slopes. Watch out for cacti and snakes!

Good trail for a quick ride when on a time crunch. It would be great if they would do a better job marking the trail. though there are quite a few fun obstacles.

Went for a ruck run today. Nice trail. Lots of signs of deer and other wildlife. I'd like to go back in the evening and check it out. The trees are nice in the hot Oklahoma sun, and enables you to have a great run without getting sunburnt or sunstroke. Being almost 4 miles, it's also a great trail if you do a lot of 5ks.

Elk Mountain Trail

I ran this relatively easy trail about a week back, and would not recommend it for such. Even through a it was an easy out and back and I had a good pair of trail running shoes I managed to bruise my left heal due to the uneven and hard to judge shitfts in the trail on the way down. However, it was a beautiful foggy day that gave me only a few view of the surrounding Witchita Mountains areas and some great misty shots. Also it was way better marked than when I was here over the 2013 holiday with a lot of the "short cuts" now having little rock walls to keep one on the real trail.

lake view lodge trail

The trailhead is just north of the lodge parking lot. There are three loops. The first loop is 0.4 miles long, Loop 2 is 1.75 miles, loop 3 is 4 miles, according to the large map at the trailhead. The loops are connected so you can select how far you want to hike as you hike. The trail and loops are well marked, especially if you follow the directions and take the loops clockwise. I would classify the portion of the trail (loops 1 & 2) we hiked as relatively easy with hills. The terrain is rocky so some of the trail surface is a little rocky and slightly uneven. Lots of trees so it is well shaded. Mountain bikes are allowed on the trail. We hiked during the middle of the week and encountered no other hikers or bikes.
