alot of fun but no real trail to use. you can either go up the narrows trail and then cut up hill or if you park near the end of the road by the picnic area there is a low water crossing on a closed road that will lead you around the west/ south west side of eagle mountain. But overall is a great hike to the top we climbed all the way up to the highest point was so beautiful. i wouldnt bring a dog with you. we did but had to carry him several times even thou he was a large lab, just a tough climb but very worth it. would do it in jan and feb to not have to watch out for snakes.

Pretty area for the Tulsa area but the trails are not well marked and it can be crowded at times. Good trails for mountain biking!

overall, this is a really scenic and beautiful trail. definitely long enough for a day trip. my group had a lot of fun completing the trail. my only complaint would be that the first mile or so kind of sucks. tons of campers and stuff ruining the view.

Great place to run when it is 20 degrees outside as there is no shade from the sun.

The trail is unmarked which can make it a little hard to navigate the first time around. It is a great trail to run in the winter although the one bubbler I was able to spot from the trail was not in working order.

A fun hiking trail for intermediate level. Make sure you bring plenty of water in the summer. It gets warm down in the canyon. The trail is easy to find as it winds the canyon rim, but finding a way down is another thing. There are multiple places to descend safely...but they are easily mistaken for other more dangerous routes.

Overall an easy trail even for kids or less experienced hikers. And it's close to OKC (45 minutes). A good hike when it's cold and windy because the canyon walls keep the wind at bay.

Not bad for being so close to the city.
