Mountain Biking Keystone Mountain Bike Trail

****   Add a review
#15 of 64 mountain bike trails in Oklahoma
#2,220 in the world

This trail has four loops the beginner trail is only one mile long, but the intermediate is 2 miles and the advanced is around 4 miles. If you turn left at every crossing you will go around the out side of everything and get about 6.5 miles in. Approvements are happening all the time because there is a group from Tulsa who maintains the trail on a monthly basis. For more information contact that group at www.keystoneoffroad.com. The terrain is rocky with a lot of switch backs for those long climbs. The beginner and intermedate trails is smooth with a lot of turns and a little climbing. It is all ridable but some part take a little more practice then others.

    I have got to agree! What a great ride! This trail has been one of my favorites throughout Oklahoma. I get at least 2 rides a week in and i always lean towards this trail.

    Was a very narrow and technical course... was some good switchbacks and had flow in areas... it was very over grown and branches hanging almost to the ground.... narrow spots had trees each side and huge rocks in the middle... over all was fun other then it being very under kept

    Rocky. Technical. Poorly maintained. Poorly marked. But, hey, it's a nice break from Turkey Mountain.

    Decent Trails. Relatively flat so if you like that kind of ride you'll like these trails.

    Keystone is a tough, fun little piece of trail. Weather conditions and time of year affect it dramatically. Part of the tour de dirt race series. Trail is intermediate in difficulty. There are a couple rocky climbs that will challenge all riders and leave most pushing their bikes, but they are short. There are some technical flats that are likely to put you off the bicycle if you don't maintain some speed and pick good lines. Multiple small stream water crossings (depending on conditions) that are all hardened or naturally rocky. This trail is worth a special trip. Single speeders should consider 32x20 for fun and 32x19 if you are aiming for fast laps. Full suspension is not necessary, but potentially increases the fun in this trail. Multiple strava sections, so do your research if you are in doubt or think you could have what it takes to be the KOM.

    Short sections of rideable intermediate trail enveloped between many extremely rocky advanced to expert, rock fests. Not suitable for your average mtb rider unless you enjoy getting off your bike and carrying it up multiple sharp rock infested stretches.

    This trail is a lot of fun. Lots of rock with some hard climbs and a few steep descents. In the middle of summer this trail gets very hot but it has lots of shade. It trail is different from nearly every other trail in OK. I look forward to the race here every year!

    I don't think this trail exists anymore. Tried to find it today. I could be wrong though.

    Been riding the trails on a regular basis here the past couple months. They are in nice shape after last winter's ice storm. No need to worry about ticks or other bothersome insects this time of year. Get out west of Tulsa and ride because the folks who have put in time on the Keystone trail have done a great job. I keep telling folks more people should be taking advantage and will continue to do so!

    Good place to ride, although if you ride it much you may get bored with it. Not alot of trails to ride. It is mostly good, twisty single-track.

    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.
