“A quiet trail with views of Lake Texoma as a great get-away from the city, yet with echoes of civilization.”— David Smith

Descending from Eagle's Roost, the trail continues to wind its way through forested hills to Rock Creek Marina, then levels out and becomes a much easier run. There is less tree coverage on the second half of the trail, but still plenty of coverage.
After 12+ miles, the trail intersects with Paw Paw Creek Road, a rather dilapidated road that connects with Rock Creek Road. Turning "right" onto the causeway allows the runner to connect with the last approximately 1.5 miles of the trail that is largely unused, ending at the Texoma Marina trailhead.
