Hike Summary: Spring River in far northeastern Oklahoma is one of two rivers that merge to form Grand River, which is the beginning of Grand Lake. Spring River Canoe Trails, at the upper end of Spring River as it enters Oklahoma, sits a few miles upstream from its sister park, Twin Bridges State Park. (Twin Bridges State Park sits at the junction of the Neosho River and Spring River where they form Grand River.) Originally land belonging to the Wyandotte Indians, this area became private farm land until acquired by the Grand River Dam Authority, and then sold to the state of Oklahoma for park development in 1980. This short hike heads east along the river following an old (now abandoned) road in the park. It then loops back, crosses into the camping area and turns east again to finish at the parking area near the boat ramp.
