Nice ride and a great place to stop and enjoy a couple of hours of hiking (see link).
Go north on 161st E. Ave. past Pine. Watch for nasty RR crossing, after that it's a fun drive. Take a break (or a hike) at the Red Bud Valley nature preserve.
Ride ends up on OK-167 just north of the Cherokee Casino. Head north from here and look for the renowned Keetonville Road.
8/22/2007 JRB: The monsoons of 2007 have caused a good deal of gravel to find its way on to this route. Some of these spots are just around corners and can be quite... awakening.
Potholes have always been a problem on this road. But a recent patch job by the county has helped. But the east end is suffering from some pretty bad lumps.
At least the RR crossing is finally civilized!
It's all about the ride.
