West end trail head. Lake Texoma Marina

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. 

Starting at Juniper point to Eagles Roost camp site and back.

Great challenging trail with in the first 3 miles from Juniper Point. Lots of ups and downs. The first hill you go down is Monkey Butt Hill. We laughed at it going in. Coming out, there wasnt much laughing. Thought i was going to have to crawl.  It was a little challenging to find the trail head at Cedar Buyou Marina. It is at the front gate before getting into the marina. Trail well marked except in this area. Trail was in great shape. Did see a few people on the trail, day and overnighters. The trail is covered well with trees in this first 6 mile section. I heard the Paw Paw trail head entrance is a little more open and more flat terrain. Planning on this trail entrance soon and try to get to Eagles Roost again. This would be a great weekend get away with an overnight stay. I believe there are about 6 camp sites on the trail between  Juniper Point and Eagles Roost with fire rings set up. We enjoyed the trail and cant wait to get back in the woods.
