Recently, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Park Rangers Matt Reeves, Cory Bowlin, and Student Conservation Association volunteers have been working to rehabilitate the Tenkiller Ferry Lake Overlook Trail. This trail is a very popular trail that draws in hikers year round.
The trail is approximately 1.25 miles long and travels across 4 pedestrian bridges through a wooded portion of Tenkiller's Linder Mountain.
Over the last few years, mother nature was beginning to take a toll on the popular trail. Many years of growth, fallen trees, and deteriorating bridges were beginning to make the trail increasingly difficult to navigate through. So SCA volunteers and Park Rangers teamed up and spent 2 days focusing on bridge repair, debris removal, and tree trimming. The trail has now been fully rehabilitated. Currently, SCA volunteers are designing interpretive signage for the trail.
Although the trail is now in great shape, it will need constant up keep. Volunteers will be needed in the future to help maintain the trail. For any information or questions about volunteer opportunities regarding the trail, please contact the Tenkiller Ferry Lake Project Office at 918-487-5252.
