Review: I live in Tulsa and ride these trails all the time. There are amazing trails with flow, there are very technical trails, and there are trails that are well past my skill level (intentionally or due to erosion/downed trees). Since it is a sandstone "mountain" expect there to be plenty of rocks, stretches strewn with boulders, a few sandy patches, and tons of post oaks. Don't expect the best mountain biking ever, but its worth a ride. I suspect many of the negative reviews are a result of people being unable to find the rides they wanted. Generally start at the north parking lot (top of the hill). If you don't know the trails and are looking to avoid technical riding, it would be best to go with someone who knows a route that is right for you. I wouldn't discourage anyone from riding without a guide, but expect some minor inconveniences like hike a bike or doubling back to find the ride you wanted. OR - you will almost always find some other riders in the lots or on the trails, most would be happy to have someone tag along. Once you get back in there, you can go a while between seeing other people even if the trail head seems busy (that's a good thing in my book). While a plan is in the works, most of the trails are not very well marked at this time. You could certainly get turned around, but it would be hard to get too lost given the available land marks (and that the trails are surrounded by roads, a large creek, and a river). If you find yourself in the Tulsa area, go for a ride. If you don't have a bike with you, you can rent one within riding distance of Turkey Mountain.

Review: I was passing through town and decided to stop for a couple hours to give this trail a shot. I ran into Cannondale Dundee in the parking lot (I think he posts here?) He offer to show me around and I took him up on the offer. We hit the trails on the south side and it was a blast. They had a good flow with some steep downhills and moderate climbs. There are hikers on the trails but they are mostly very accommodating. I don't put out the wattage of Dundee or shred as hard but he was cordial and waited for me at the cross roads. I'm pretty sure I only scratched the surface in my 3 hours so plan for a full day. Also look for Dundee, he drives a Prius and always carries two bikes. He's a little eccentric but a great guy to ride with.

Review: This is a great network system of trails anywhere from beginner, to advance. I highly recommend you find someone who knows the trails and can show you around. The marked trails are mainly for hikers, unless you're an expert at biking up boulders, but there are a lot of unmarked trails that are fast single track, or more technical rock gardens. If you don't know where you are going, it's easy to get confused, but you are by a river and a highway, so you can't get lost very easily. Some of the unmarked trails do have names, such as Snake, The Old Washing Machine, Rock Garden, etc, but they have no signs on the actual trail, which can make it confusing unless you have a guide.

Review: This isn't a single track mountain bike trail. If you vear right from the parking lot, you'll see some 'red' trails that are short Singletracks. Mostly downhill, lots of forks, they all ultimately go the same way, then you'll have to dump out on the pavement and get back up the mountain. I didn't really enjoy this at all. It's a cool area, lots of hiking trails, not fun for bikes. Bring your significant other, bring your kids, your family or your dog - but do t bring your bike.

Review: The lower pink trail is a short loop off the southern parking lot, exactly as you described. Fun for a run or two, but I get the disappointment. The rest of the lower area is better for hiking. Most of the solid single track is up the hill from the lower lot (park in the upper/north lot). I don't think it will blow you away, but it is worth a ride. If you find yourself in town again, you'll find you missed out.

Review: In town visiting in-laws...glad I brought the bike! No previous knowledge of the system, TH maps were pretty faded so I tried following blazes, which worked for the most part but there are millions of off-shoots going to...? Maybe the coolest drop ever? Who knows! Got FOMO real bad, but was rewarded nonetheless. Awesome shelf rock and hard clay banks. Great place to work on technical skills/not realize you're accidentally following a creek bed. Took a headset to the groin but will be back soon!

Review: Great trail! Very busy on the weekend. Lots of foot traffic. once on the long trail, foot traffic thins. Several options for "off the main trail" riding. I was not familiar with them so I stayed to the main trail. Great obstacles, lots of rocks and very fun technical opportunities. Good trail for a Bike Bell if you are here on the weekend. I managed to find some pretty steep very technical rock descents that really worked me over. Very Fun. I look forward to returning, not on the weekend, and with enough time to explore all the "inner trails" that network between and around the main trail. From the trailhead, there are some opportunities for a free ride trail jump area. Head away form the main trails and go to the RED trails and look for ramps, drops, bridges and other great technical obstacles. There is a "pump track" on the map, but I didn't find it. Yellow is highly traveled and wide, with a great potential for skills development. Blue is a bit tighter. I really enjoyed this trail, I am sure there are times the weather wreaks havoc on the trail and requires TLC. This is a big City park and looks like it is funded and maintained. Not as Gnarly as Medicine Park, If you can ride this trail, you are ready to attempt Medicine Park. MP (near Lawton/Ft. Sill, OK) is a much more technical and gruesome trail.

Review: Have ridden this trail twice and did not like it either time. The last time I rode it, several trees were down and it was obvious that it was in need of some TLC.

Review: Great trails. Kinda confusing as to what the best routes are being new to mountain biking and not knowing the trails very well. Lots of areas that require good technique. Took me a handful of trips to get where I could run the loops with confidence and without stopping/walking the bike. Also seems the pump/flow track has been shut off. Not sure why.
