Explore the most popular birding trails near Broken Bow with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Some climbs. Rocks and path are beautiful. Fully shaded and the views are worth it! Toddler and dog (on leash) both did great.

Great trail with a special bonus down by the river. A Native American Trail marker tree is along the trail. It has no special signs to identify it, but it is obvious if you look around.

Great time with our 13 & 11 yr old and golden retriever. Some parts were a little steep for younger daughter. We saw squirrels and deer. A couple spots make good photo oops.

Great trail. Got lost at the end and had to finish on the road. We did not have an app. Wish we would have had this.

Great workout with scenery but doesn’t have an “ah-ha” look at that view moment!

Nice trail! Some steep sections but not difficult—mostly downhill. My husband and I completed it in 1 hour 33 minutes. Happy trails!

Note that it combines with other trails, so we had to double check directions a couple of times (trailhead map is faded; overall, when in doubt— stay right). Animal Review= lots of lizards, frogs, 5 deer, and a black snake.

Currently pretty over grown and part of the trail was pretty slanted. Little kids will need a hand to hold, but overall, a great trail!

Definitely a moderate hike! Especially if you start at the 1st entrance to path. Strenuous climb up. Lots of large stones in path so watch your footing. Beautiful scenery.

Good family hike. There’s not much of a look out at the top. The trail is very rocky and narrow but it is well marked. Easy to follow the signs for my children learning to hike.

One of my favorite short hikes up at Beavers Bend, lots of Scenic Views and wildlife!

Great route for a mild workout with the family, dogs, this is perfect! Behind the Lodge is a fantastic lake entry for them to play and cool down after! Bring water shoes for the lake.

I really enjoyed this trail. However in some parts it is more on the moderate side.

Thought it was going to be easier. Then it kept going up and up and up. Good hike. Would have liked that last log cut to avoid crawling under.

I walked this trail this weekend, it was more moderate and not easy in my opinion. Nice scenery, be ready for a steep climb and a good workout.

This trail was pretty easy. It begins in the trees and winds around towards the lake. We didn’t run into very many people.

Not a technical trail unless you plan on hurdling the 20 or so trees that have fallen on the trail. Not sure if it all happened recently and it was just our luck or if the state park really doesn’t take care of their trails. A few times you couldn’t even see the trail. We carried our bikes about as much as we rode them. Otherwise it would have been a decent and scenic trail.

This is not the trail for the DBHT. It actually continues on past the point this map starts its return (at the spillway). At 259a it crosses over to the Indian Nation Trail (not sure where this junction is from the skyway trail unless it’s at Bee Creek because there it offers a route to “the lodge”) which takes you to the Armadillo camp area, you then cross the road and take the continuation of the Indian Nation Trail to Carson Creek. You can turn around at this point. So you do Skyline Trail 7+ miles, connect to Indian Nation Trail at spillway for 5 miles to Stephens Gap, connect to next section of Indian Trail towards Carson Creek for 1 mike, and turn around. A car at drop off Dogwood Camp and one at the Spillway would work. Don’t start the trail by spillway as you can’t get back to your car due to bridge area being washed out.

Great trail for families. 7-11 year olds did great.

Pretty flat, easy hike. Portions near lake were flooded but easy to hike around.

Take a left at the bottom of the steep incline to loopback around to the visitor center. This was not clearly marked. Do not cross the creek. It’s a great trail, we enjoyed it

Nice well kept trail easy hiking nice scenery lots of quartz everywhere

great trail, hiked it with my husband, 9 yr old daughter, 4 yr old son and 1 yr old daughter in a carrier. had some pretty steep points but we all had a great time.

Wife and I did this hike. It was a very nice workout. Views were nice, no real lookout point.

Hiked from start to finish with a picnic lunch in the middle and it took us 2 hours. Forest side was warm and lake side was refreshingly cool. Vistas were breathtaking.

This trail was challenging and fun but it is not "easy". Great workout tho! There is a "lookout point" although it's not much of one. It's marked by a small stone wall. However if you keep walking past the lookout point you will come across an even prettier view. The trail will also loop you back to the nature center if you start there. Needed a little maintenance as we had to crawl over a few down trees. We had a wonderful day and took some time to enjoy the nature center, all in all a great trail and marked well.

This is not an easy hiking trail! It is beautiful and the scenery is great, but there is no good lookout point. The one that we did find was not clearly marked so we hike 1 mile past it.

Beautiful easy trail! Wish we could have hiked the whole thing, maybe next time!

I accidentally did this trail, so I went in with no expectations. I am an active 28 y/o F and while I didn’t consider this trail very difficult, I definitely wouldn’t label it easy. Perfect length and just the right amount of effort involved to make it a great workout without being miserable! I do wish there would have been a good lookout point
