This is one of the finest trails in Oklahoma and Texas. A prime racecourse from way back, you can get it on here like almost nowhere else. Start on the good old “A” loop and do a couple of miles of sandy warm-up. If you’re feeling babyish then take the connector back up to the parking lot when you hit the “B” trail. If you’re not feeling babyish enough, then follow Mr. “B” until you are. Wander the creeks and stuff that looks like parts of Oklahoma. Still not tired? Catch the “C” and a switchback or ten. If you fall over because you can’t get out of the pedals on a switchback, then try to aim for the pine needles (they are fairly soft). When the “D” pops out, ride it too and climb a few loose hills. Punish yourself—you’ve been bad.

Excellent singletrack. Lots of switchbacks. Plenty of roots, but nothing really problematic. If you struggle with loop A or B, you may want to skip C & D. Essentially this is a 10 mile loop with opportunities to loop back early. It will smoke most riders, especially in summer.

Love these trails! Been riding them since 2002 and they are still awesome and fun! Something for everyone with the four Loops, plus EZ and the paved road - who could ask for more?
