    Thanks! It's been a lot of fun so far, looking forward to getting around to the rest of it.

    They're missing on my end as well.

    Here's where I found out about the OAT, there's a map and several other trip reports there. https://advrider.com/f/threads/making-of-the-oklahoma-adventure-trail.836706/

    Thanks! I could probably export my gps file from Topoquads but the map for the OAT is in the seventh post on this thread and that's what I'm following. Is that what you're looking for? I don't remember going through Barnsdall if I did.

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    The K trail left me hungry and low on fuel so I followed the route south past Octavia to CJ's corner store. Fuel acquired, it was time to make a decision. The store was closed so food was out of the option and I was trying desperately to not have to eat the MRE I'd brought as back up. I could...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    From Talimena (headed east), the route doubles back west on to what I now consider the "pre-K trail" It follows the same ridge as the K trail but farther to the east...it makes sense when you're there! Anyways, this section climbs up and follows the ridge. It's more rugged than the other...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Day 2 started off the same as before. The route follows the back roads and high water was everywhere. Fortunately, there were no reroutes necessary this time. The next leg of the journey went through Ceder Lake State Park. The views remained beautiful and the roads rustic but easy and...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    This area was absolutely gorgeous. There were lots of fields with livestock and a mix of large commercial farms, family farms and...one particular single wide with some horses out front that had eaten every living thing in reach. Right on schedule, the route popped out of of the bottoms into...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    After topping off on gas I took the highway south to Poteau and summited the “worlds tallest hill”…whatever that means! It was a fun little drive and I recommend it to anyone taking this trip. The views from on top were great and I spent some time enjoying some dinner up there. Swinging back...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    I'm a bit late in writing this installment but better late than never I suppose. This leg of the trip was a bit last minute. I hadn’t anticipated being able to get out of town but a last minute check of the Spiro mounds visitor hours and my wife’s gracious offer to fill in for me at a volunteer...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    I've seen this building in photos from others who have taken this route but it crept up on me and surprised me just the same! Endless miles of trees and a single wide every once in awhile were abruptly interrupted by this structure in the middle of the road and several others with similar...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Continuing my trip back to the bridgehead, I stopped for some obligatory photos by the beautiful Illinois river. Plenty of fields along the river filled with cattle And here is the aforementioned missing bridge. Across the river you can see the kayak rental business which now uses the site...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    Time for another segment! This time I explored solo, for about a total of 8-10 hours. I wasn't in a hurry, just took things easy and enjoyed the outdoors. You'll notice in many of the photos that despite it being August, we had low hanging clouds all day which kept the temps to a high in the low...

    Oklahoma Adventure Trail

    The next leg of the trip went a little faster, with very straight paved and dirt roads the miles flew by. Terrain was mostly prairie but every so often the road would duck into the trees and squiggle around to cross a creek and then run nice and straight for several more miles. One feature of...
