Fast, family friendly trail with different loop lengths. Lots of locals ride this cool trail. Nothing too technical. Ride over a bridge through a tree.

    This trail is my favorite so far in the state. I rode the beginner trail three times on presidents day then went through the red trail. Lots of fun. The beginner trail is not technical at all so if you're trying to convince your wife to get into mountain biking so you can spend more money on it, try this one out.

    Relatively level with no major climbs or descents. Very twisty with a lot of sand. Great fun to ride. The track is very fast but beware of other trail users. This trail is wildly popular.

    This was a 'fun' trail. Nothing technical, just flowing and lots of banked turns. After three months in New Mexico trail riding, this was a total joy. Also very safe. I'm an intermediate MTB, but sometimes I just want fun!

    Great trail system, lots of trails to keep you busy all day. Some technical challenges but needs work. More sand than I remember last time I rode here.

    I just got home after taking my stepson out for his first MTB run. We got to the trails only to find that all the trails had been reversed. This used to be my favorite place to ride but with everything reversed all the flow is dead. No much fun anymore.

    This is the first time being back on Oklahoma in 2 years. I have been riding in Minnesota for just over one and have fallen in love with MTB. I took the green and yellow with my 9 year old and he was teaching hos 19 year old cousin. I took the red and purple the next day. This course will be good for those just starting out and also needing confidence.
    I am so happy the sport has expanded here and hope to what it grow.
    We have clubs and school MTV teams back home and would be happy to see that happen here.
    I am going to take the wife/pretty one to Thunderbird later and see if that has more technical areas.
    Keep ridding all and help on the trails if you can.
    BTW I am by no means an expert rider. I put that down because it was the trail I road.

    Fun track, played on the green and yellow trail today. Sandy in some parts, can't wait to go back and check out the other trails.

    I put beginner so it doesn't scare anyone away. I rode all except the black course. The green course is a great beginner course with some intermediate thrown in. Pick a color! Blue was pretty easy with a lot of smooth switchbacks, yellow was gradually more difficult, but beginners can still conquer it. Orange was like the yellow, with some switch backs and climbs, not too bad, but short. Red was my favorite. I went very fast through it and had no problems. When tired and slowed down a bit, the sand got the best of me. You have to run lower than pressure in your tires to help grab in the sand. Black, I looked at but it's not my cup of tea to fly a bunch of A peak jumps and rollercoaster ramps. I will spectate some day. The local club takes great pride in clearing the trails. I spent 1:30 to ride everything. Great time and will return soon.

    This is my favorite spot to ride in OKC. Several different loops ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert. The blue loop is full of twists and turns and is fast and flowy, very fun and a great warm up. Green loop, as well as blue, is begginer level but also fun and great warm up. Nothing technical but some decent climbs and some fun flowy downhill. The Orange loop is intermediate and has a little bit of everything, by far my favorite, a bit short though. The Yellow loop is also itermediate with plenty of flow, some really fun rock gardens, some technical climbs and technical down hill, a few fun jumps and cool bridge. Red takes it up a notch to intermediate/expert. This one gets gnarly in a few spots. Could be scary if riding beyond your skill level. Finally there is the Black Loop this one is Expert only. Big jumps, pump sections, wicked berms and a log crossing. Shout out to Oklahoma Earthbike Fellowship for keeping these trails so well groomed and thank you for creating such an awesome place to ride.

    This is my favorite place to go mountain biking. I'm fairly a new rider. Been riding for about a year, and this was one of my first places I went riding. I've rode the Green, Orange, Red, and Blue trails. I have yet to ride the yellow trail, but I want to. Red seems to be the most technical, but even for a beginner like myself was easy, and super fun! Highly recommend this for beginners. My daughter could easily do the green, and blue trail. She had to get off a few times on the red trail though.

    First time to Draper and I loved it. I think I rode all the trails (Green, Red, Blue, Yellow, and Orange). I'm a beginner (less than a 100 miles and only several months in).

    So Green Trail. Some very simple straight track, but also some very good flowy turns, twists, and little hops. Some turns are sandy and I did have some traction issues both front and rear tires. Green is fun for beginners and I'll be back.

    Yellow Trail is really cool. A bit more challenging. Some steeper climbs and some fun downhill sections with tight trees. Would recommend to beginners like myself, as it pushes you a bit.

    Orange Trail let me down, as it was short and not as difficult as Orange. Be aware the trail marker looks Red to my eyes, not orange, so I passed it once and rode Green again to find it.
    Red and Black have jump tracks but also steep and a bit more technical bypasses. I had fun here, but its obviously not for Cross-Country bikes or my skill level.

    Highly recommend this trail for anyone learning as it takes stamina and you can learn bike control better here.

    Passing thru and road the trail today. We really enjoyed it. Only had time for the Green and orange trail but it was fun. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. Some sandy parts you need to watch out for.

    Rode Draper today - a blast as always. Super sandy (even more so than Arcadia right now) but I always feel like that is part of the game.

    Great spot. Trail is in great shape - clean and fast!

    Go do it.

    Great trails, very well maintained and all trails are marked very well. Trails for all. Beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert trails. Blue trail is built for speed so be ready! Not a lot of sand but there are a few places. This is a mountain bike trail system, so there is something for everyone and all conditions. Not a recommended trail when wet.
