Summary:
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.

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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Turkey Mountain is the only other MB area in Tulsa.

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
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.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Turkey Mountain in Tulsa, Lake McMurtry Trail in Stillwater, and Womble Trail in Arkansas.

Summary:
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.

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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Turkey Mnt.,Green Leaf,Lake Thunderbird,Clear Bay,12 Miles of Hell

Summary:
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

Recommended Route:
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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
go to austin
