by Ashley The Burnt Cabin Trail In Oklahoma Leads You Straight To A Beautiful Cliff View
The Burnt Cabin Trail is a must-see for outdoor adventurers and nature lovers alike. Located within Greenleaf State Park in Oklahoma, this trail will lead you on a journey through some of the best scenery the Sooner State has to offer. This 2.2-mile out-and-back trail leads visitors through lush forests and up hillsides, eventually leading hikers to one of the most breathtaking cliff views in Oklahoma.
The cliff view itself is worth the hike alone – it’s perched high above the lake below and offers a stunning panorama that can be enjoyed from multiple angles. The overlook also serves as an ideal spot for wildlife watching, birding, and photography.
The 2.2-mile trail is covered with trees so it's a very shaded trail which makes it nice in the middle of summer.
The hike is rated as easy but there are a few inclines and rocky terrain that might challenge beginner hikers.
However, the rewards of conquering the trail are well worth the effort. The trail winds through the forest, crossing streams and offering glimpses of stunning flora and fauna along the way.
The trail leads you to a rocky outcrop that offers a panoramic view of the surrounding hills and valleys. The view is particularly breathtaking during sunset when the sky is painted with shades of orange and pink.
Keep your eyes peeled for deer, armadillos, turkeys, red-tailed hawks, and other wildlife along the way.
This stunning trail will leave you with lasting memories and an appreciation for the natural beauty of this region. Lace up your hiking boots, pack a picnic lunch, and get ready for a breathtaking journey on one of Oklahoma’s best trails.
