Singletrack, with some rocky, technical sections; mostly intermediate riding. Out and back loop with 13 or 18 mile options. A beautiful environment to ride in

Summary:
Rode this trail after reading the reviews and recommendations of other MTB riders and all I can say is it is by far the worst trail in the Oklahoma system. Lower end to Mary's Cove is ride able, but has zero flow and tons of debris and fallen trees. The upper section is nothing but rocks and roots, it is a hiking path.

Recommended Route:
I recommend you avoid this on a mountain bike, it stinks!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Turkey Mountain, Roman Nose, Lake Thunderbird....just about any trail is better than this.

Summary:
This is a great intermediate ride. This is not for beginners. It's all narrow, twisty, overgrown singletrack with lots of rocks and roots.

Recommended Route:
From the Swinging Bridge, stay left on the Western most trail that runs along the lake to Mary's Cove and then come back the same way.

As others have noted, the trail continuing North from Mary's Cove and the Eastern trail back to the Swinging Bridge are rugged, steep and more overgrown. I recommend avoiding these trails unless you are into hike-a-bike.

Summary:
The FIRST half of this trail was very enjoyable - well maintained singletrack, water crossings, not too steep, and shady. Unfortunately, the second half - AFTER Mary's Cove was still littered with fallen limbs and overgrowth left over from the debris of the '08 ice storm. So, just as we were extended fully from our base, the path became nearly impassable. The unexpected delays caused us to run out of water & food way earlier than expected. We ended up 'bailing out' onto a military road and returned through Camp Gruber as darkness was falling.
We reported the adverse trail conditions to the Park Staff and she texted me that a crew went to work on the trail the following Monday, so it may be fine now. Call first! (I rated this trail VERY technically difficult but after renovations should rate only moderately difficult.)

Recommended Route:
First half to Mary's cove was great, but a bit too short by itself. Check with Park staff on the progress of trail renovations.

Summary:
This is a rugged intermediate or above trail. Stay on the lower loop closest to the lake both ways. The upper loop isn't ridable. 9 miles out and back. The scenery is worth the effort, just make sure you and your bike are prepared.

Recommended Route:
Stay on the lower leg both ways.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Robbers Cave.

Summary:
This trail is NOT a mountainbike trail. It is however a good hiking trail. Myself and 3 buddies went to ride this 18 mile hiking trail thinking that it would be fun. There is so many rocks and overgrown weeds that you will find yourself never getting out of granny gear. When people say that there is epic hike a bike, they mean it. If you enjoy mountainbike do not waist your time with this one. You will regret it. However, if you like to push your bike around in the weeds this will be a great adventure.

Recommended Route:
Turn around and go home, this trail is not a mountbike trail.
