Mountain Biking Lake Lawtonka Trails

*****   Add a review
#2 of 63 mountain bike trails in Oklahoma
#381 in the world

6 different loops of single track consisting of rock gardens, short steep climbs, fast rolling meadows, with several dry creek crossings. Restrooms are located at Lake Lawtonka School House Slough at the eastern trailhead, in the middle of Medicine Park, and at the Lake Elmer Thomas boat ramp as you enter the wildlife refuge on HY-49. Green and red loops have the most flow but are closed for hunting Oct. 1 thru Jan. 15. Blue loop is the easiest, but still would be considered intermediate level. Orange, yellow, and black loops are rocky, technical, and challenging with grueling climbs and boulders.  There has been an additional 2 miles of trail added to the Blue Trails in 2021 and they are being currently being improved. There are now 4 Enduro type Down Hills with some decent drops & jumps (bring your full face helmets).  The orange, yellow, and black loops are rocky, technical, and challenging with grueling climbs and boulders. out the trail map at

Getting there
Check out the trail map on the east side of the Lake Lawtonka Dam or in downtown Medicine Park at Base Camp Adventure Outfitters. There are several locations to access the trails as shown on the map, but the best place to start is to park in the middle of Medicine Park and ride from there. Trailhead for the west shore trails is located at the end of a short, dead-end gravel road that intersects with HY-49 just as you enter the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge from Medicine Park, OK.
