Just moved to northern Oklahoma so i figured I should check it out since I have only been to Turkey Mountain. I ride a single speed rigid so it is a very rough trail but all in all i enjoyed it. It has a little of everything but mostly rocks. The water crossings are a nice change of pace, don't see too many of them on trails, some challenging technical sections and some unexpectedly fast downhills near the top. I will definitely ride this one again.

Fun and fast singletrack on Beginner and Intermediate loops. Rough with sharp rocks on Advanced and Expert loops - fun in places, but I didn't want any more after we got off that part - more than a few places where you've got to take feet off the pedals and help the bike or just walk it. Longest loop is ~5 miles, shortest loop .8 miles.

Customer Service

One way - Try it all, it'll challenge you on the harder loops.

Good single track trail. Has something for beginners to expert(?). The 'expert' section isn't too overly challenging, but challenging enough and fun. Longest loop (Expert) isn't too long, but you can always ride the other loops, or ride backwards. Someones car was broken into while I was there...beware.

Customer Service

Expert loop.

I am new to the sport and this is only the second trail I've used. As a beginner, the Keystone novice trail was a very good experience for me. It wasn't too technical, but did present some challenges for me as a beginner. It's a very nice trail with some sharp hairpin curves. The only complaint I have is that the parking lot is not marked at all. You just kind of have to know where it's at.

Customer Service

I took the novice route, but I'm a novice.

First time on this trail was this past weeekend, and, although some parts wore me out, it is a great trail. Very varied! There are some tight switchbacks that will leave your head swimming and some rocky sections, but they are well done and can be gotten through. Then... there are some wonderful rocky creek crossing that are a blast. Ride the whole thing and you will love it.

Customer Service

left out of parking lot, follow trail through first creek crossing, then left to second creek crossing and then right (going to the left is the expert section.. and I ain't an expert).

An updated review after a ride out there this week... The trail is taking shape quite nicely, much more technical than it used to be when it was an infant trail. There are lots of sharp, jagged rocks to manuever through which makes for great riding. The advanced loop has a really fun, off-camber climb coming out of a creek bed that is full of big rocks. The expert section is a nice challenge.

Customer Service

From the parking lot, take the left trail and then another left when you come to where the trail splits again. This will take you on the longest uniterupted loop, which is about 5 miles.

Trailhead can be windy and cold, but the trail is sheltered by trees and contours. You can warm up with the Beginner loop, about 1 mile. They say this map will be improved, but it's pretty good for now: http://www.okearthbike.com/trail_pages/keystone/keystone_prel_map.jpg

Trail length is about 5 miles.

Customer Service

From OKC exit Bristow, follow 66/48 north, east on 51 through Mannford, then 151, gravel turnoff on the right (after you pass a big Lake Keystone entrance on the left).

Fun trail! Big thank you to everyone involved in making this trail happen. I was home for x-mas and heard there was a new trail in Tulsa! Man did T-Town need it! Don't know who exactly built it, but they did a great job and put a lot of work into the trail. You can tell as you ride along what kind of work went into it, one of the best constructed trails I have seen in a while!!
The trail has a little of everything, tight technical, tight twisty smooth, fast smooth, and even some climbs! All around a great trail and a trail everyone can ride, just choose the loop that best suites your skills and go have fun! Oh, lots of trees to shield you from the cold/windy winter and the hot sun in the summer!! I can't wait to ride it again next time I am in town!

Customer Service

We started at the trail on the left side of the parking lot.

Fun trails. I heard that they are new as of this fall. Most of the trails are well established and a very few of them are still grassy in sections. I imagine there is an ongoing building effort. Very well thought out and executed design. Includes Beginner, Intermidiate, and Expert loops varying in both length and difficulty. Fun and medium to medium-fast, although not as flowing as they could be. There are a few sections where an ill-advised sharp turn appears along an otherwise swoopy, flowing line. Nice up and downs (I had no problem on my ss 32:18). Most excellent use of natural rocks I've ever seen! Lots of rocks that seem untouched ramp you up and over obstacles. Ride the rocks, they will shuttle you into the perfect line. Great water crossings. It was a little greasy in the lower sections when I was there but I heard that Tulsa had recived some snow a few days prior. Props to the trail crew out there. I see some great potential in some of those outcroppings. Bonus: Bald eagles. I'll be back soon!

Customer Service

Don't miss the parking lot! As soon as you turn off of 151, it's right there.

THIS TRAIL HAS A GREAT FEEL TO IT AND I LIKE THE ROCK CREEK CROSSINGS AND THE BENCHINGAND CONTOUR FLOW IN THE ADVANCE LOOP AND EXPERT LOOPS. I LOVED THE CLIMB IN THE ADVANCED IT TOOK A TIME OR TWO TO GET IT DIALED.
THE STONE IS VERY NEW BUT WELL ON IT WAY TO A GREATNESS!!
THIS TRAIL WAS WELL THOUGHT OUT AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE NATURAL STONES AND CONTOUR AND I WAS BLOW AWAY THAT THERE IS SOME FAST OPEN SMOOTH SECTIONS!
TRAIL HAS IT ALL, BE NICE IF IT COULD BE A LONGER RIDE, OH WELL, RIDE THREE TIMES AND HEAD FOR A BURGER!
I GIVE IT FIVE JELIBELL RINGS!
