Turkey Trail is a 10.5-mile trail that follows the Cimarron River beginning at the Cottonwood Picnic Area. The trail is slightly downhill on mostly hard-packed paths. The trail can be rough and dense in spots. Enjoy the abundant wildlife and scenic vistas surrounding the area.
The Perry Lake Motorcycle Trail is open from dawn to dusk and provides a range of narrow wooded trails, which include steep, rugged hills, and at times, deep puddles. There are separate beginner tracks available because most of the 10-mile track is geared toward experienced riders.
The Spillway Cycle Area at Turtle Creek Dam is 35 acres with a wooded landscape adjacent to the spillway area. The cycle trails are open to novice level riders and will provide hill climb challenges for more advanced motorcyclists.
At Bogie’s Adventure Park in Latham, the goal is to provide motorcycle and quad riding for families (and all levels of riders). The owners are accommodating and provide plenty of insight to the trails and the area. This is a great motocross park to enjoy the day.
