Tom Steed Reservoir

Average Rating:    (4.74 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 19

Just rode this today, it is all beautiful singletrack. Beware of large boulders, creek beds, slippery slabs, and ten foot vertical drops. No stop to the action. And if you can make it up some of those hills, you are world class. Like a condensed version of 12 miles of hell (both in the wichita mountains)

Summary:
this trail was my home course for the first two years of mountain bike riding. what a great way to start. it is an all mountain course so it is a great way to work on track stands, handling, technical climbing and some real technical downhill.

Summary:
Had always heard how sketchy this trail could be and how tough it was to ride. Rode it on 2-19-11 for the first time. For sure it was the most technical ride I have ever been on in oklahoma. It was rocky, some pretty stout climbs, nothing to steep or sustained. Flashes of both both never to terribly bad. There are really only a couple of places where hipe a bike is absolutely mandatory. Snakes are already out in Feb so I imagine it gets worse in the summer. It kind of reminds me of Troy Built (minus the elevation and the view) near Fruita, Co.
Oh, a beefy bike is the way to go here, beef, with stiff suspension, and short chainstays for hucking. Leave the Carbon Fiber at home! I rode my El Guapo, a bit heavy but a perfect choice!

Recommended Route:
Counter clockwise was good, but so was clockwise. Ride it both ways, you can't go wrong.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ardmore (Lake Murray)
Hills of Hell Lawton is not what it used to be, the military rec dept got involved and dicked it all up.
Not much else close to it.

Summary:
Great Trail. Some ridiculous parts. Hadn't ridden in a while, so clipless was a bad idea; i fell into a cactus. all single-track. pretty well marked. oh, and it's Tom Steed not Tom Sneed.

Recommended Route:
Park at the first spot. It comes pretty quick after you enter the park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
12 Miles of Hell is great too. Tom Steed has better scenery though.

Summary:
Figured it was time to get a fresh review going for this trail. I think they took down the "wooden sign" at the second entrance, all we saw (after driving too far past) was a blue information sign on the main road, follow the road into the park & we found a trailhead near the baitshop, right behind the bathrooms.

What others have said is quite accurate, there are rocks, & alot of them! My friend I was riding with rode more than I did, but it'll definitely make you a better rider.

There's a ton of sharp stuff out here!
I finished pulling 22 (that's not a typo) sharp thistle like things out of my tires from the ride this afternoon. At least 6 of them went all the way into the tire, but the Stan's sealed it up.
My friend had tubes & we ended up fixing 2 flats, & the 3rd was losing air on the way back to the truck....
so bring lots of tubes, patches, or make sure to have fresh Stan's in your tires.

Recommended Route:
Trailhead near bait shop seemed good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ardmore
