5 Best Dirt Motorcycle Trails in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the off-roading community is strong. And for those thrill-seeking dirt bikers looking for the perfect track to hone their skills and have a little fun, there are plenty of options. From miles of tracks in privately-owned parks to entire motorsports complexes, here are the five best dirt biking trails in the state. 

1. Lake Murray, Ardmore, OK

The ATV and motorcycle trails are located on the northwest end of Lake Murray. The 10 miles of trails have sand and varying terrain to bring riders an exhilarating adventure. On a busy weekend, you’ll need to be cautious when riding, but Jeeps and dune buggies aren’t allowed, so you won’t have to worry about that. It costs $10 per rider, and there is even camping on-site. It’s a beautiful location for taking your bike out on the trail! 

2. CrossTimbers Riding Area, Oklahoma City, OK

This area features almost 1,000 acres of trails for ATVs and dirt bikes. City permits are required, but you can get them at the marina. The riding area is next to a campground where you can relax between rides. The riding permit costs $10 per day per rider, but if you plan on going out often, get an annual permit which lets you ride all year long, weather permitting. Just make sure to check closing time, because all vehicles need to be out of the parking area, not just off the trails.

3. Angel Ridge Mid-America Race Park, El Reno, OK

Angel Ridge features a full-size motocross track, a freestyle area, a pee-wee track, and an outdoor national track. The track is open all week long, sun up to sun down. Riders will need a Department of Transportation-approved helmet, goggles, and boots. The terrain is mostly for amateurs and novices, but there are some obstacles which will add a challenge. 

4. Woodland Hills Off-Road Park (WHORP), Anadarko, OK

WHORP has a nice track that follows the natural terrain. You’ll need a permit to ride at this privately-owned park, but it’s well-kept and has a number of nice trails that wind through the wooded areas and fields around the main track. The park is open year-round, weather permitting. Overnight camping is permitted prior to race days.

5. Oklahoma Motorsports Complex, Norman, OK

This complex has a motocross track, a pit bike track, and supermoto track. They’ve recently started a motocross school, for beginners to pros, and there’s a bike shop on-site. Make sure to check the schedule for events. Beginners can learn the basics on pit bike track while the other tracks are more of a challenge.
