The One Hike In Oklahoma That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Landed In A Jungle

With 11 different eco-regions in the Sooner State, the topography is about as diverse as you can get. Even though we don’t have a technical “jungle” hiding away in the state, we do have a few areas that feel like one. There’s a heavily canopied forest in southern Oklahoma that’s full of lush, green scenery and if you take Skyline Trail – an 11.6-mile loop trail in Beavers Bend State Park – you’ll feel like you’ve landed in one of these jungles.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
