A network of loops from beginner to expert. Some parts are rocky with creek crossings. The expert loop has a couple of switchback climbs that are challenging. Longest loop is the expert loop. Each level of loop is an alternative offshoot from the main beginner trail. However, when you connect back onto the trail it doesn't tell you that you've finished the expert loop, and are back on the advanced, intermediate, or beginner trail. Likely because they are going to add more of the advanced and expert sections. It's pretty hard to get lost. Some sections were muddy, but most were short and there was rain recently. There were some OEF folks out there rerouting a consistently wet part of the trail. There are no signs for the trail off HWY 151, but it is almost across HWY 151 from the state park entrance (just north), and there are trail head markers at the trail head. Also, someone's car was broken into while I was there riding, but it wasn't mine; keep valuables out of site, and an eye out for a older model grey Jeep Cherokee (they did it). Good trail and alternative to Turkey. Can't wait to see what OEF and/or the Keystone/Tulsa group does to add on to it.
Turkey Mountain, but not as technical
