“A very nice trail for all users. It's a short distance with a nice climb.”— Dustin Brown
This is a fairly popular spot on the weekends and school vacation times so if you visit during one of those times, expect families and crowds. On the way up the trail, there are multiple game trails and side trails to explore, but don't get lost. There are great opportunities for some rock hopping and pictures. Once at the top, there are some great views available of the refuge.
Either follow the trail back or make your own trail back but if taking an alternate trail be sure to have a plan and research the terrain first. Enjoy your time at the summit and explore around before heading down. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge has many other trails as well.
