There are lots of rock steps coming and going. Some are deeper than others, but the view was so worth it. I didn't even know Oklahoma had rune stones. Very interesting place. Loved it!
Heavener Runestone is one of those places that almost feels like it should be a roadside attraction from the 1960's but has been elevated to a state park instead. This is not a bad thing. The runestone itself, while the centerpiece of the park, is by no means the only reason to go. The park itself sits on top of a beautiful hill with a good view over the surrounding countryside. The trail down into the small valley that holds the runestone is nice and full of little surprises along the trail for those with a sharp eye. And finally once you leave, the mystery surrounding the runestone itself can lead to a fun conversation as you drive on down the road.
Great short (very short - 1 mile max) hike. Great if in the area and looking for something to do for a couple hours. Staff was very friendly. Lacked trail map, though.
We really enjoyed checking out and hiking this beautiful area. However we were really disappointed that the park office/gift shop never opened. The hours said they'd be there from 1 to 5 but we checked back all through the day and no one ever showed up. We like to have a trail map with us when we're hiking....thankfully these trails were not hard to follow though. Also We have always bought something from the areas we hike, but our collection will be missing this piece now. :(
This place and the staff are simply amazing. The bi annual Viking Festival is a great event to visit as well. So much history is here. Must see if you are in the area.
Love it!! So beautiful
