Take A Relaxing Stroll On Dripping Springs Trail And Discover A Dazzling View To Remember In Oklahoma
Take a morning or afternoon out this weekend and stroll Dripping Springs Trail in Colcord, Oklahoma. This beautiful trail winds its way through Natural Falls State Park, offering stunning waterfalls at what feels like every turn. Bring the whole family to enjoy this easy trail.
If you’re looking for a wonderful way to spend a beautiful summer afternoon, head to Dripping Springs Trail.
This is an easy, well marked trail in Natural Falls State Park. Its main attraction is the stunning waterfall halfway through the trail.
The waterfall drops 77 feet off a cliff and into the water below.
It falls into a pool of water fed by natural springs. This is one of the only waterfalls in Oklahoma’s Ozarks, and it's a stunning one at that!
The trail is well marked and maintained.
Much of it is paved, and you’ll cross well constructed and beautiful bridges. The entire trail is only a one mile loop, and it's very easy to accomplish.
There are so many interesting natural features that you’ll come across on your walk.
The trail also offers good bird watching, as well as a small fishing lake. It’s a good spot to spend the whole day.
The sound of rushing water will accompany you as you stroll your way through this stunning state park.
If the waterfall at the end of the hike looks familiar to you, it’s because the movie “Where The Red Fern Grows” was filmed there in 1974.
You’ll need to pay a small fee to access this beautiful trail.
There is a $5.00 cash entry fee to visit the grounds. It is well worth the price, and there’s also koi ponds, gardens, and structures on the grounds to explore.
The best time to see this gorgeous waterfall is right after a good rainfall.
So if the forecast looks rainy, block off the next day so you can experience this stunning natural wonder at its best. You won’t regret a moment of this hike!
