I have a home on the southeast edge of this land which consists of about 5 sq mi of very rugged terrain and ridden mountain bikes there since 1989. It is bordered on the north by Avery Drive and the Arkansas River, the west by Hwy 97 & , the south by 41st street and the east by 65th West Ave and Berryhill. I have read all the other reviews, and they are accurate to a degree. I can see why most of the reviews complained about the mud, when entering from Chandler Park, you have to cross a large meadow that was mined for clay to cover the nearby Superfund landfill site. If they would go east from the gate about half way down the hill there is a decent trail into the woods. I leave from by backyard staight to the trails, so don't have that problem. I also know which trails to avoid after a heavy rain. I ride here from October through April, generally about 2 to 3 hours each Saturday and Sunday morning. If it is too wet, I go to Turkey Mountain, but the longest loop there only requires about an hour to ride. I do not ride this or any other trails in Oklahoma in the summer. The combination of heat, humidity, chiggers, ticks, and spiders makes road riding a much more attractive way to get exercise. The trails range from very easy flat sandy two-track to some absolutely impossible decents. I have several two-hour loop rides that can be completed without getting off to walk. There are some single track trails, I have built several of these over the years, but the majority are jeep roads. The problem with building a trail is either it doesn't get ridden enough the keep it clear or the motorcyclist, fourwheelers, or Jeeps discover it and ruin it. I have not found the motorcyclist or there motorized vehicles to be much of a concern. I rarely ever see them, and if I do meet one on the trail they are always going real slow. You can always hear them coming way before you see them, so you can get off the trail if you need to.

Explore, there are hours of trails. The single track there if you look hard enough!

Beware of weekend warrior motorcycles. They're loud and hostile. Also, make sure to bring an inflatible raft with inclimate weather. You will have to swim out.

Customer Service

Just stay left of the clearing until you approach the massive hills. Then climb! Your descent along that first fireroad after the scenic view will rattle everything loose.

This used to be a pretty fun trail. I havent ridden out there this season but i have been out there for the races that we've had. Also, there are a lot of motorcycles buzzing around but what I've seen they tend to stay off of the singletrack. It seems to me this could be one of those areas where there is some potential for actual off raod trails in Tulsa. I love Turkey, but you can only ride there so many times.

Customer Service

Just go across the gate and go into the large clearing. As far as I can remember, there is a singletrack that snakes down the hill to the left. It curves around to the south and then you climb a fire road back up to the clearing.

I have found there to be plenty of different routes and plenty of different skill challenges here. You can see that motocycles and 4-wheelers visit but I have yet to run into any.
If you dont choose the above route take the 1st left up that hill after the gate and continue around into the woods. You will come upon some challenging down hills. I was just there last weekend and found it to be dryer than usual and visibility was great. In the summer you don't get to see through the trees and brush.

Spend a day out here....pack lunch, plenty of water, gel shots, and a towel. Be sure to cover the seats in your truck for departure. You will need it.

Customer Service

Once you get over the white fence, take a right up the gravel hill....after about 500 yards you will find a steady long decent into the valley. From there find the hills!!!

Don't even think about riding here after a rain. Red clay will get stuck onto everything on your bike and it won't even roll.
Pretty good climbs, good technical singletrack. You'll have to hike it on a few sections of singletrack uphill due to large rocks. A great alternative to Turkey Mountain. I always worry about getting busted for going through the locked gate though.

Customer Service

Through the white fence, out to the left down the hill halfway, then right onto the single track. Or right after the gate, out on the double track. I usually just wander around all over the place. I like the single track better, since it is in the woods, and you are not baking out on the double (or wider) track.

Its a great ride that no one in Tulsa seems to know about. It seems to be mostly fireroads but there is some nice twisty single track w/ plenty of drops. And unlike Turkey, there are no homo's to fight off in the woods.
Watch out for trucks & dirtbikes, bring plenty of water, and dont try this if your just a beginner

Customer Service

go all the way to the end of the park, cross the white fence at the baseball diamond, and take a right on the fire road

About 12 years ago I rode my first mountain bike here many times and at that time i knew that i was on truck and ATV trails.Then I found Turkey Mnt and quit riding at Chandler-- until I saw this website.So I went out there to give it a fresh look.I found lots of fire roads and ATV trails, but saw no singletrack.The trails that are there are fun at times, but not really ideal for mountain bike use.It was fun to explore a different area--even found a wrecked jeep out there--but for true bike trails go to Turkey.

Customer Service

At white gate go right and down long hill,once at the bottom there are numerous options from there

Don't even think about riding here if it has rained in the last month. The mud/clay will get stuck in your fork and chainstays to the point that you can't even roll. Watch out for spiders in the summer. Me and a buddie rode out here several years ago one summer night and came across huge spiders and webs around almost every turn. It would be a better trail if it was ridden more often.

Customer Service

Park at the ball field on the south end of the park. Lift your bike and yourself over the white gate, mount up and head west, then south. Keep heading south until you get to a rocky clearing. From here you can go just about any direction. Remember where you are going, and take a compass if you are new here or not with someone who has been before.
