The Top 3 Oklahoma Hiking Trails for Fall

The Sooner State is teeming with hiking trails that wind through some of the country’s best fall colors. Whether you’re interested in lakeside trails, trails close to home or those winding through the Wichita Mountains, you’re guarantee to find a new favorite path on every Oklahoma hiking adventure. The following three trails are some of the best throughout the state for admiring the vibrantly-colored scenery that autumn brings.

Black Mesa Summit — Black Mesa State Park

Black Mesa Summit is the highest point in Oklahoma, sitting at 4,963 feet. Needless to say, you’re guaranteed a breathtaking view of fall colors from the top. A 4.2-mile-long moderate hike leads to the top where you’ll admire a rugged type of fall colors provided by scrub oak, rocky buttes, mesas, juniper and other panhandle terrain. The route to the summit and back is 8.4-miles long and there isn’t any water available on site, so be sure to bring plenty of liquids for your journey.

Lake McMurtry — Stillwater

The Lake McMurtry Natural Resource and Recreation Area is open year round, but fall brings more precious scenery than any other time. This family-friendly lake offers a serene setting with breathtaking sunsets behind brightly-colored trees. The park is open to RV and tent campers, and it’s loaded with moderate and easy 6- to 8-mile hikes that will have you sweating enough for a jump in the lake when you’re done.

Bert Cooper Trails — Oklahoma City

You don’t have to venture far from the Leisure Time RVs in Oklahoma City to enjoy some unbeatable fall foliage and hiking trails. The Bert Cooper Trails, formerly known as the Lake Hefner Trails, are ideal for walkers and bikers with stunning fall views of Lake Heffner as well as countless picnic areas and playgrounds to stop and take in the sights. The 9.1-mile-loop is an ideal way to escape the stresses of city life.
