  • Exploring K Trail

    Mike and Lenda Green and I explored southeastern Oklahoma's K Trail this past weekend in order to collect GPS tracks and waypoints for an upcoming adventuring/scenic touring run. Here are my pictures from the trip:

    Wow, awesome pics. Thanks for sharing.

    I thought the K-Trail was closed, though. But maybe I misunderstood Mike Green's post?

    If it's not closed, then that's great news as I've always wanted to try it. Please post more info on your trip and GPS waypoints if you get a chance. And thanks again for the info and pics.

        Clayton,Ok to Arkansas to Pickens,OK 222 miles

        So last weekend Roy Battles,Lenda,unborn Green Bean,Taz, Patrick and I headed to Clayton Oklahoma to explore K-Trail. I had heard for years you could start in Clayton and end up in Arkansas basically by taking trails or gravel roads. We planned to be self sufficient except for fuel and we would camp along the trail or road once the sun started setting.
        Little did we know by the end we would see a Black Bear,Bobcat,numerous lizards,turkeys,squirrels,deer,cows,calves,road runners,a snake and I actually held a fawn !!!!!


        So let the adventure begin !!!
        O dark 30 we meet in Plano at the Home Depot.The rigs are loaded and we are off



        The back seat was full LOL



        This is Roy heading up Clayton trail





        This was the top of the 1st ridge. there seems to have been a settlement here at one time. The views are unreal.



        YES this is 3 hours away



        I will let Roy explain what we are doing here at the settlement. *Note from Roy: My string of Jeep outings, in which I have to be yanked off being high-centered, remains unbroken!



        I took numerous picures of the trail and will include them throughout post. Lenda and Roy drove most of the route while I navigated and took pictues!!!!







        our 1st critter



        Mckinley(sp) Rock
        as we arrived a couple had been camped behind the rock for a few days. Awesome spot





        From the rock



        Roy atop Mckinley







        Looking back,Lenda in the back ground as the boys play







        Looking down into the camp site

        The trail



        Posers (at my request)



        The abandoned Kiamichi fire watch tower. You could see for ever from it.







        Taz taking a nap at the tower.









        The camp spot







        The Moon



        Beef stew and Beanie weenies out of the can

            I think this is in correct.. Hunting clubs leasing land are closing trails not Weyerhauser

                      So how long were ya'll gone for, and where did you park the tow rig and trailer so it was safe for that time period? Make it all the way to AR and then back?

                            The flowers











                            Ahh coffee



                            LOL Patrick says, I am done



                            Headin back towards Oklahoma





                            Close to Smithsville the land levels out



                            Ahh choices





                            Now thats a lug wrench



                            We stopped and asked where the nearest fuel was. Un benounced to us. The owner had almost hit this little guy 2 days before. We aren't quite sure what the plan is once he gets older ?







                            Quit messing with the deer,it is time to go



                            Hmmm pavement,not for long



                            Swim ??









                            Atleast 60 miles visibility



                            Look close and you will see Roy's rig in the center of the picture. He is at the enge of the old clear cut.



                            This area is beautiful and not well travelled



                            CB repair ??



                            Yes this is Oklahoma



                            Loggin operation. This strips the logs of branches



                            Plus cuts it to length. It is all hydraulic



                            Loader



                            Skidder for going down and retrieving the logs



                            Front half of the skidder. Notice the muffler on the tree guards



                            toothpicks



                            Blade on the cutter







                            Swampers have nothing on these tires
