Short Mountain Hiking Trail


category : Trails
The 5.4 mile trail, located near Sallisaw and the Robert S. Kerr Dam and Recreation Area, presents a challenge to hikers with steep climbs at either end, but the vista from atop Short Mountain is worth the effort.

The trail meanders along the top of the mountain offering views of the lake, lock and dam. Hikers may be treated with a view of bald eagles from November through March. Spring offers the beauty of redbud and dogwood blossoms, while autumn presents a glorious splash of reds and golds.
