Dripping Springs Trail

The falls were very pretty. I wasn't crazy about the screaming children running around everywhere, but that's what I get unintentionally going during spring break I guess. The bridges were a little narrow for my taste, having a large dog next to me but we made it work. I would consider going back.

Average. Not the best trail at the park, not much scenery, very flat. The nice part, it was very quiet and considerably longer than the other trails (but still pretty short). People tend to congregate at the falls, lots of noisy kids running around everywhere. This was the quietest trail by far, which I (and mt dog) enjoyed. He gets scared around rowdy kids. I'd go again.

I went on the yellow trail today; late evening so I did not do the whole loop. The parking area for the trailhead has changed from what is shown on this site, so this map is a little confusing. I recommend that you download an updated map from Tulsa River Parks (riverparks.org). The portion of the trail I was on was very well marked.

Went walking there about a week or so ago. Did not see any animals. It is a good place to walk as there are small inclines to add to the excitement. Nice ponds to enjoy as well. I cannot wait till the turtles and frogs come out.

Spectacular little trail just outside of Catoosa. It has a great Ozark feel with a nice bluff line trail complete with a spring and small cave.

A family favorite for a quick hike.

I have hiked this trail a couple of times and it is a good hike to get started on if you are new to hiking. For the most part the trail is easily followed but some parts are not well marked. Wear good shoes and take water and cell phone for emergency use.

One thing to note is you will need to stay alert for snakes. There are lots of rocks for them to hide under on the trail.

Boardstand Trail

This trail was great! We started at the Old Military Road trailhead and went clockwise. Did 6ish miles the first night (got there in afternoon) and camped near the intersection of Old Military Rd with Boardstand. It had been raining heavily the week before our hike, so all the creeks were full, some almost too full! There were many, many creek crossings, especially on Boardstand and Ouachita; under normal circumstances these would have probably been no problem, but with the higher water levels, they were a bit dodgy!

We camped the second night on the Ouachita -- there were a good amount of campsites along the trail, most with fire rings. It was a lovely trail with some rewarding vistas along the way!

I write this review, and give the trail 4 instead of 5 stars, because of poor markings near the end of the Ouachita portion of the trail (if you are going clockwise). There is a turn off where you head down the bank and then cross the creek -- this was poorly marked and we missed our turn! I wanted to warn future hikers of this problem -- near the end of Ouachita, be aware of the blazes -- they will be clearly marked across the creek, so be looking for them at this portion so you'll know when to cross.

All in all, an enjoyable 3 day, 2 night hike.
