Washita Trail Guide
 
 

The park trail system allows visitors to experience and learn about the events that took place along the Washita River. Fifteen stops along the dirt and grass trail describe key points about the 1868 conflict. As of right now, the trail is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Mud can accumulate after recent rain or snow.

Doxey Shale

The distant hills north of Washita Battlefield are called the Horseshoe Hills. These hills were formed as a result of erosion of the softer surrounding material about 250 million years ago, leaving the harder Doxey Shale behind.
