“This trail begins at Oak Park (the park), connecting to Buzzards Roost in two places before ending at Bankhead Trail.”— Scott Akridge
Family Friendly The bottom of Buzzards Roost Trail has springs that run much of the year where you can look for fossils and wildflowers.
This is a singletrack trail and it climbs 400 feet to the Bankhead Trail, formerly a section of the Flat Rock Trail. There is a steady incline for the entire trail with a few switchbacks throughout. There are more switchbacks towards the end as you get closer to Bankhead Trail.
At 0.6 miles, the trail forks where a triangle of rocks has been laid out; stay right to keep on trail while bearing left takes you to the Buzzards Roost. At 0.75 mile, the trail meets back up with the Buzzards Roost where again you stay right. From here, the last 0.15 miles are the steepest you'll encounter.
The trail dead-ends at the Bankhead Trail shortly after the steep climb.
