I forgot to mention the snake I saw swimming at the bridge was a moccasin, so keep that in mind if you decide to go near the water.

I love this trail. From the main trail head to the swinging bridge is about 5.5 miles, and you have to walk on the highway for a small portion of it. Just watch for the blue blazes and arrows. if you go past the swinging bridge the trail gets a bit more grown over in areas. I usually wear pants for that reason, and also the fact that I've gotten poison ivy every time I've been on this trail. So watch for that. If you do find some, there is also jewelweed right on the trail to apply anywhere that might have come into contact with the urushiol. The trail is mostly shaded in the summertime.

In 5 or 6 visits to this trail I have seen a deer, bobcat, wild boar, a snake swimming in the lake, & lots of squirrels and frogs.

It's nice having a trail like this in Tulsa, but the trail could use some serious clean up.

I thought it was worth the trip from Oklahoma City. Several other stops nearby that I was able to fill a day with.

A must do in the WMWR. Amazing views of Lake Lawtokna, Ft. Sill, the Refuge, the sacred Kiowa Slick Hills. There are "trails" in every direction from the parking area leading to spectacular lookout points and boulder hopping around. Mt Scott is the fourth highest (and only easily publically accessible) mountain in the Wichita chain.
