A great mix of flow, rocks, tree cover, and short climbs on the west shore of Lake Lawtonka.

Overview

Closed for hunting October 1 - January 15.
Made up of two distinct loops, this ride is the most versatile in the area. Great for intermediate level riders, this trail has just enough rocks to make it challenging, but enough smooth flow to give you a break and let you relax or kick up some speed. Positioned between Lake Lawtonka and the base of Mt. Scott, it makes for a peaceful ride free of noise from traffic, trains, or chatter. A good amount of tree cover provides much needed shade throughout the summer.
Features: -none-
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

Parking in the middle of Medicine Park is also a great option, as you can ride across the Lawtonka dam and use the blue trail to access the Green Trail and Red Trail.

Description

The trailhead is located at the end of a gravel road, just west of the entrance into the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge on HY-49, just west of Medicine Park.

This is one of the coolest six miles in Oklahoma. It starts off with a ramp over the refuge boundary fence and then not long until your into some cobblestones on the Green Trail. The Green Trail is the first four miles and the Red Trail is a two-mile loop on the north end.

This trail has a little of everything; great tree cover, small creek crossings, rock gardens, leg-burning climbs, and fast flowing downhills. Would not recommend riding it when wet due to super-sticky clay. Plenty of rocks and boulders to make things interesting.

Pretty challenging and technical. Definitely recommend good bike handling skills. I think being clipped in was a mistake; going with flats next time. 5mi — 1h 15m
