Cross Timbers Hiking Trail | Lake Texoma
Cross Timbers Hiking Trail begins at the Juniper Point West Trailhead in Juniper Point recreation area and winds west some 14 miles along the southern shoreline of Lake Texoma through Cedar Bayou and Paw Paw Creek resorts to Rock Creek Camp.
Between Juniper Point and Cedar Bayou the hiker travels high above the lake on the rocky ledges that make up the shoreline. From these high vantage points one is refreshed by beautiful views of the lake and its shores. From Cedar Bayou to Paw Paw Creek resort the trail meanders through a blackjack oak woodland which typifies the Cross Timbers environment. This segment of the trail takes the hiker through many changes of elevation. Between Paw Paw Creek resort and Rock Creek Camp the trail is much flatter and the tree cover sparse.
