Ogala Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Solitary cyclists will enjoy the Ogala Trail. This seven-mile system has easy to moderate stretches over a variety of terrain. The singletrack and forest roads cut through plenty of unkept sections that can become unruly during the summer. At the end of the ride, a paved descent allows cyclists to finish with a high-speed, knobby-tire humming descent. Trail surface is singletrack, forest roads, and county roads.Ogala also seems to exist on the fringe of the Forest Service. Sitting like a diamond in the rough, this trail system is mostly undeveloped with many trails sparsely marked; fallen timber crossing some of its cut paths. Ogala’s tranquil existence draws the solitary cyclist and will show off its gems only to the most peaceful trail users. Tucked back along these faint paths, wild turkey, grouse, many species of woodpecker, and deer all call the Ogala area home."
