Red Rock Canyon State Park, located in west central Oklahoma near Hinton, is an outdoor adventurer's dream. With the backdrop of red canyon walls, visitors are invited to reconnect with the natural world while exploring the park's trails. Take a serene walk on one of the park's two nature trails, or enjoy a more strenuous hike through the rocky terrain on a hiking trail. Hikers can still see wagon wheel ruts left by settlers traveling to California, as the park was once a stop along the historic California Trail.
Rappelling down the canyon walls is a favorite activity at Red Rock Canyon State Park. Visitors should bring their own rappelling gear to enjoy a day of challenging descents down the walls. For the most adventurous visitors, the highest point of the canyon walls goes up to 80 feet. Start from this point for spectacular views and thrills on the way down. Visitors will also enjoy trying their luck with rod and reel at the fishing pond, and the on-site playground is an instant hit with kids.
