Washita Battlefield National Historic Site is a 2 mile one way hike with 50 feet elevation gain. Located 59 miles south-southwest of Woodward Oklahoma. The trailhead is car accessible. April and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.

The site protects and interprets the setting along the Washita River where Lt. Col. George A. Custer led the 7th U.S. Cavalry on a surprise dawn attack against the Southern Cheyenne village of Peace Chief Black Kettle on November 27, 1868.

The historic site is located near the town of Cheyenne, which is situated in western Oklahoma halfway between Amarillo, TX and Oklahoma City, OK. Cheyenne is approximately 30 miles north of I-40 on Hwy 283 and approximately 20 miles east of the Texas border.
