“An out-and-back ride along the western shores of Lake Murray outside of Ardmore, OK.
— Jeremy Green
A fun, twisting singletrack along the shores of beautiful Lake Murray. You'll spend most of your time in the woods, with occasional views of the lake. You won't find much elevation gain, but there will be a couple of small climbs that will challenge you. Most of the trail is smooth and fast, however, there are a few rock gardens along the way to keep it interesting.
Need to Know
Bring water, there are no services at the trailhead.
Start at the Buckhorn Trail
by the Lake Murray Lodge. Go down the hill to the shore of Lake Murray and skirt around on the sandy, rocky trail surface. Go over a wooden bridge and continue toward Cisco Road. After crossing over Cisco Road, continue straight on the Anadarche Creek Trail.
Make your way over 2"-4" logs and some short, steep switchback descents as you head north. Follow the yellow trail markers with red arrows. There are many trail options, such as the Big Loop or Race Loop
Turn around at any point for a nice out-and-back, or continue to Pecan Grove to complete the Big Loop.
