The Mesa hike is 9 miles round trip and fairly straight forward except for the brief scramble to the top midway. You do have to be aware of rattlesnakes, definitely their country so just pay attention. Views are great both from top of Mesa and...More
Very easy to follow trail. Great contrast to my road to the Panhandle. Black Mesa rises above the schrubs exposing rock and nice colors. The ascent to the mesa OK high point is gradual and an easy 20 minute walk. The oblisik is very nice...More
I live pretty close to Black Mesa, and I go there often. I enjoy it most in the late afternoon, so that you reach the summit when the landscape is most striking. The hike itself is nice -- challenging only in the second quarter as...More
Enjoyed the campground plus about 10 or so miles away was the Black Mesa Hike to the highest "mountain" in Oklahoma. It is more than 8 miles round trip (or felt like it) but kind of neat. Might do it again. The campground is very...More
Great hike, but not for amateurs (although it was my first summit.) Pretty flat until you reach the base, then moderately strenuous with a steady rise to the summit. I would suggest starting early at dawn to beat the heat if hiking late spring or...More
We recently stayed in Kenton and explored the park a little. We hiked the Bird Haven Trail and drove around the lake. It's a well-maintained park with some decent camping areas and nice facilities. It's not big, but it's nice.
We traveled to Black Mesa Summit Preserve and hiked about 8.4 miles roundtrip to the highest point in Oklahoma. The trail is well-worn and easy to follow. I would classify this trail as moderate. The first couple of miles of the trail are relatively flat...More
When people think of Oklahoma they often picture the lushness of the Cookson Hills or the flat tall grass parries. Black Mesa is one of the amazing transition zones that mark the point where the Rockies meet the short grass prairie. The mesa itself is...More
This is by far my favorite state park in Oklahoma. It's remote and quiet. The facilities, while not top notch, are taken care of and maintained. The bathrooms were the cleanest, by far, that I've seen in any state park I've ever been to. It...More
Wonderful little oasis out in the middle of no where!!! Great views with lots of places to walk and explore. We have a 40 ft motor home with tow vehicle and there was no problem getting in and out. Very nice employees that want to...More
