Big mountain riding in Oklahoma?? I sh!t you not [o] (pic heavy)

Here's a few pics from our Tulsa Freeriders group ride a couple weeks ago at Cavanal Hill in Poteau, Oklahoma. It is the 'World's Highest Hill' with an elevation of 1999', one foot shy of being a mountain. So far we've found 2 DH trails, although there is plenty of other jeep trails around that we can hit, we just need a couple GPS's and some walkie talkies. The runs take ~30 minutes each, and the shuttle is paved the whole way to the top. Good times………………….good times

Here's a few pics

The crew, Steve, Joe, Denis and me

Denis, waaaaaaaay S T I L


yours truly, same place


Steve, same spot


View of the end about ¾ the way down, you can see the cars in between the trees


our awesome shuttle drivers


Steve, on a nice drop we found at the end


So, if anyone is ever in Oklahoma, and wants to do some downhillin', let me know, and we'll hit it up. I could only make 4 runs that day because my arms got soooooo pumped I couldn't grab the back brake anymore.

Thats cool. My mother lives in Claremore. There are hills in her area (she overlooks Oologah Lake) but I always wondered if there were any trails. Never thought I'd see d/h runs though, lol.

wouldn't it be called "big hill" riding?
that looks awesome, rocky and tech.
you should start makin some trails.
technically yes, but for us ******* downhillers, that there's a mountain gawl dangit! :D

Yeah, it is SUPER tech, and has claimed several brake rotors and a few big toes. One weekend, me and my friend broke the same big toe on the same foot, and lemme tell ya, that schit hurts! :eek:

What it lacks in sheer elevation it seems to make up for in speed. There don't appear to be many turns or stuff to slow you down. I'd bet you can get into some hairy situations going mach 2. That's definitely one you'd want to check out first before just lettin' 'er go full bore. Is some of that a powerline access trail? I think a guy could get his money's worth out of a Brake Therapy floating brake kit on some of that...LOL!
