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).

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.

Natural Falls State Park: Dripping Springs Video

Dripping Springs (Natural Falls State Park) – taken with cell phone

Back on March 21, I had a nice visit to Natural Falls State Park, near West Siloam Springs in northeast Oklahoma. The highlight of the park is Dripping Springs (aka Natural Falls), one of the tallest waterfalls in Oklahoma.

Here are three cell phone videos I took of the falls. (The third one is after the jump.)
