Old Frisco Trail
Oklahoma’s Old Frisco Trail in Le Flore County, Oklahoma has to be one of the more scenic horseback riding trails we’ve seen. While most of the trail is crushed stone, you’ll also find some dirt, grass and wooden trestle areas across the trail. The trail is flat, perfect for beginners and those looking to have a serene ride. Along the trail, you’ll see Cavanal Lake, a gorgeous spot to watch the sunrise. The trail ends just outside of stunning Lake Wister State Park, so consider packing a picnic.
Osage Prairie Trail
Following the corridor of the now-defunct Midland Valley Rail, Osage Prairie Trail goes north out of Tulsa, winding through urban and rural scenes. This 14.5-mile trail is lit in some sections for night riding, and much of the trail is shaded to make daytime rides more pleasant. As you ride the trail, you’ll pass over three scenic bridges that offer fantastic views of the countryside.
Arcadia Lake Trail
As its name implies, the Arcadia Lake Trail follows gorgeous Arcadia Lake outside of Edmond, Oklahoma. The trail begins in Scissor Tail Park and continues southbound around the north side of Arcadia Lake. Riders will find the trail to be mostly shaded. The trail is 4.89 miles and mostly even.
Lake Carl Blackwell Trail System
Boasting more than 50 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails, the Lake Carl Blackwell Trial System is one of the most extensive available in Oklahoma. The lake offers camping, restrooms and picnic areas, so expect to make a full day of enjoying this trail. The Yellow Trail begins at the campgrounds and continues for a total of 5.76, though it makes a full loop. The trail zig-zags for a while, and is considered an intermediate trail.
