Well we finally found the trail head at Lake Texoma Marina. Frame work was there but not a map. Wasn't sure if that was the beginning or not. We tried it. ''This end of the trail need more hikers. After the first mile or so, trail becomes very evident. Lots of cedar and trail is fairly flat. Loved walking it. Lots of trash thrown off the side of trail from low life people that just don't care. We walk in about 9 miles to Eagles Roost and camped the night. On a cliff facing Oklahoma. Eagle Roost trail could use some traffic and cleaning up due to trees that have fallen over. But over all, amazing hike. Next day we hit the ups and downs to Cedar Boyou to get picked up and taken back to car. Over all about 13 miles of pure enjoyment. Light traveled weekend on the trail. Lots of primitive camp site that just isn't on the map.
