    The trail bed is solid. the main loop had some grassy areas on each side of the trail but nothing that wasn't rideable. We had a blast and saw others on the trail doin the same. Thanks for everyones hard work, we cleaned up the track wherever we found down limbs and such too. I will try to ride this track at least once a week. Hope to see u guys there too

    I would be glad to show you around. I'm going to try and get out there Tuesday or Wednesday evening this week at around 6:00. This weekend is out as I am going to Taos to ride some real mountains.

    I'll also send you my email.

    Is there any place to find trails/maps near the refuge? I have read a lot of posts and really wanna try them out. I'm from OKC and have hiked and climbed in the refuge a lot, just looking to bike some. Any help would be appreciated.

    Good job!

    There's a visitor centre in the refuge with maps and info but I'm pretty sure the only biking on the refuge can be done on the firebreak trail. I have heard of at least one ranger there that gives us a hard time, it's a $200 fine for riding on any other trail than the firebreak. I have even heard of guys getting in trouble for riding the access trail to the fence to the trail in this forum, though I never have. Ride the trail mentioned in
    This forum, it's the best in the mountains.👍

    See posts #29-37, Fly2Hi96 plotted the route and it's about as good as it gets for this riding area. Get with someone on this thread for your 1st ride and you will have a good time.

    OK... the red on the map is the main trail and is well worn in and rockin'. The yellow trail was cut late in the spring and may be hard to follow; it's been a while since I've ridden it. Pick your bike up and climb over the steps ( the trails are on the city of Lawton property not the refuge) and head due north. When you come to the "Y" just make a loop in either direction. As soon as fall gets here I'll be back out cutting new trail with the goal of a good 10 mile loop by next summer. Of course all help will be appreciated. I'll be gone this weekend but when I get back I'm going to go out and check out the new trail and see if it can be followed. JimmyV may have ridden it since I have and may have a better idea of conditions.

    I rode the firebreak trail once again, since i didnt know we were allowed to climb the stairs, Firebreak trail was alright, not many spots to pick up speed though, its all flat. ran into a buffalko/bison though

    I rode the yellow trail a couple wks ago and it was ok on the far end just gotta keep your head up to stay on the trail. Look for the markers they are up in the trees above the trail. From the far end of the yellow heading back near the lake it looks like an atv blazed through it, super grassy but rideable. Watch for hidden rocks. Once the yellow trail wears in it has the best view of the lake.

    Too bad I'm working. Are u riding the wee-chi-tah trail? I ride that trail when I get a chance to but since seeing this thread I think I will bring my bike with me to work one day/night and go try this trail by the refuge. How does it compare to the trail in WF?

    At one point a year or so ago there were some trails started near Big Rock. Any idea what the status of those trails are?

    ??? U sure u rode all of Firebreak? It has a number of climbs. Much more than the Medicine Park loop. Some r tough enough that my 32/19 singlespeed requires me to stand up n grind. The back sides of the climbs have several places u can drill it for high speeds. Obviously not single track, but great training n fun. When u get to the turn around be sure to take a stroll thru the parallel forest. Pretty cool:-)

    The Firebreak jeep trail is also about 6mi one way.
    Good cardio with a view.

    The it's all flat part of you statement leads me to believe you are not riding the "Firebreak".
    It has its share of elevation changes, of I'm a bigger wimp than I lead myself to believe.

    Ur not a wimp Jimmy V It's not a particularly technical trail/road, but it's by no means easy. An out and back is around 14 miles and you get between 1,100 and 1,200 feet of climbing.

    The trail that I rode was labeled something like "unaltered bike trail" or something like that. I only went about 5 miles into it though. So i didnt get very far. haha The beginning of the trail is the best spot to get some speed. Idk which one is better though the trail where you have to Hop the Stairs is INSANE! I think i only got 5 miles into that as well. I was riding into nothing but spider webs.

    aint nothing but an heavy incline and rocks everywherre.
