The Old Frisco Trail begins on the south end of Poteau, the county seat of eastern Oklahoma's Le Flore County, not far from the state's border with Arkansas. Most of the trail has a crushed stone surface and you'll cross occasional wooden trestles along the route. The pathway is relatively flat and parallels Old Wister Highway through a forested area. On the way to Wister, you'll pass the scenic Cavanal Lake and end your journey just north of Lake Wister State Park, a beautiful 33,000-acre area offering additional hiking and biking opportunities. Note that the trail is prone to flooding in rainy weather, so use caution.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking can be found in the PARC Ball Field, a half mile south of the northern trailhead on the western side of the trail (off Highway 271).
