Lake Tenkiller: Buzzard Roost Trail Fall Pics

Buzzard Roost Trail, Lake Tenkiller
At the southeast part of the loop, not long after the creek crossing.

The Buzzard Roost Nature Trail at Lake Tenkiller (northwest Sequoyah County, Oklahoma) is a pretty 1-mile loop on Cato Creek.

Although there are no blazes, it is not hard to follow the trail. It has some pretty views, especially along the creek.

My full profile of the trail is in this post. These are more photos I took on that hike (November 19, 2016).

Lake Tenkiller: Buzzard Roost Nature Trail – 1 mi

Buzzard Roost Nature Trail is a scenic 1-mile loop trail along Cato Creek by Lake Tenkiller in northwest Sequoyah County, Oklahoma. It’s a Corps of Engineers public use area, near Cato Creek Landing.

There is a little climbing on the trail, but it is not difficult.

The trail heads generally southwest along a stretch of the creek.

About halfway down the west side of the loop, the trail makes a short detour to the west where it crosses a side stream ravine.

The Nebo Steps/Nebo Springs loop at Mount Nebo State Park (Yell County, near Dardanelle and Russellville) is fun little hike. Although it’s short, it is a workout as it makes the steep climb down from the rim level to the bench road level and back.

It’s a beautiful hike though with interesting rock formations and cool views in the higher areas.

This loop is .7 miles and encompasses the Nebo Steps and Nebo Springs trails as well as bits of the Rim Trail and Bench Road Trail to connect the two. For details, check out the full profile in this post.

Mount Nebo State Park (Yell County, near Dardanelle and Russellville) is a beautiful place. This loop covers two of the trails on the mountain. It’s a short hike, but it’s vigorous and pretty cool.

There are 2 main levels on Mount Nebo, the bench level and the rim level at the top. Nebo Steps and Nebo Springs are 2 of the trails that connect the levels.

This .7-mile hike takes Nebo Steps Trail down to the Bench Road Trail and then takes the Nebo Springs Trail back up. Then the Rim Trail takes you back to the start.
