The Little-Known Waterfall In Oklahoma You Can Only Reach By Hiking This 1.4-Mile Trail

Hiking trails are plentiful in Oklahoma but waterfalls are not, which is why we love to share when we find hidden ones. Tucked away in southern Oklahoma is a Wichita Mountains waterfall only accessible by the Forty Foot Hole Trail – a 1.4-mile loop trail that is open year-round. It’s surrounded by some of the prettiest topography in the state and worthy of a day trip.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, visit their website. The website will give you suggestions for natural sights to look for depending on the time of year you are visiting, as well as helpful maps, driving directions, and a trail guide.

Have you hiked the Forty Foot Hole Trail and seen this Wichita Mountains waterfall for yourself? What did you think? Share your experience with us in the comment section below. We would love to hear from you!

Another beautiful trail we highly recommend in the Wichita Mountains is the Jed Johnson Tower Trail. It’s especially beautiful in the spring when the wildflowers are in bloom. You can check out this article to learn more about the Jed Johnson Tower Trail.
