Overlook Nature Trail at Lake Tenkiller (Sequoyah County, Oklahoma) is a pleasant 1.1-mile wooded hike along the south end of Lake Tenkiller. It’s a scenic walk and during leaf-off has quite a few views of the lake.
Back in late November, it was a particularly rainy weekend throughout most of Arkansas, and I was getting a dose of cabin fever and decided to try to get out for a bit. My typical hiking partner decided to sit this one out (something about cold and rainy), so I decided to go check out Hammerschmidt Falls in the Buffalo National River (northwest Newton County).
Hammerschmidt Falls is only a short distance from our cabin, but we had never hiked to it. It sits at a pretty high elevation, so I’ve always assumed it would take a lot of water to get going. But after 2 days of steady rain, I thought the timing would be perfect.
Hideout Hollow Trail is a cool 1-mile trail near Compton (Newton County) in the Buffalo National River. The highlight of the trail is Hideout Hollow, a beautiful valley overlook which during wet times has a 37-foot waterfall.
These are some videos I took of Hideout Hollow Falls back on May 10, 2015.
This first one is of the falls from over on the south side of the hollow.
