The Stillwater Cycle Park has 500 acres open to ATV riding. The routes are over red clay, which is quite slippery when wet. An annual permit is required to use this park.
Directions: From 6th & Western, go south 4 miles to 56th St, turn west and proceed 3.5 miles. Gate to the park is on south side of road.
Registration of OHVs (ATVs) is not required in Oklahoma, and there is no minimum age for riding such. Muffler and spark arrestors are required on State and Federal land and the OHV must be equipped with headlights for night riding. On-road use is prohibited with certain exceptions, notably riding on unpaved National Forest system roads.
This excellent facility has been operated by the Stillwater City Parks Department since the mid 70s. With over 500 acres of available riding area for ATVs, mountain bikes and motorcycles, it offers something for everyone. Terrain is mostly red clay, which is slippery when raining, and plain dirt. The park features enduro trails that are well-marked and traverse wooded sections that range from open to very tight. The motocross track is sane, yet challenging. There are plenty of elevation changes along the numerous creeks, and runoffs keep the ride interesting. The facility is open year round to riders who pay an annual membership fee (permits can be purchased at the Stillwater Parks, Events and Recreation Department, 315 E 9th St, or during riding season, the Trailriders Motorcycle Club members will sell permits at the park entry). Riders are required to use a helmet and spark arrester on their bike.
Overall, Stillwater Cycle Park is the 12th most popular ATV riding trail of all 19 ATV trails in Oklahoma. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Stillwater Cycle Park including Crosstimbers Riding Area, Little Sahara State Park, Pear Orchard Motorcycle Use Area, Eagles Roost ATV Area, Big Red Off Road Park and Cross Bar Ranch.
