K-Trail
 
Anybody planning a K-trail run any time soon.....

I ran it from Nine Pines road all the way to the Indian Hwy last year and had a great time, I really want to run it all the way across into Arkansas..

oklj 07-19-2011 05:12 PM

What is this k trail you speak of?

TJamieD 07-19-2011 09:12 PM

bink98xcab 07-25-2011 11:38 PM

Is this the same one that ran through the honobia creek area, I used to camp around there before it became private

Its not a private road, it is a non maintained public road, that starts close to clayton and runs all the way to Arkansas, around 250 miles total. It runs across the Kiamichi mts....has some really good views also..

Last year we ran about 70miles of it, started a 9 pines road and went all the way to the Indian hwy.. had a great time, but it was just to dang hot, so we are planning on trying to hit it again once it cools off..

here is the link to the pictures that were taken..

Looks like a blast. Run in to any meth cookers out there. How long did the 70 miles take?

bink98xcab 07-29-2011 10:44 AM

Well the land around the honobia creek areais what I'm talking about.I used top ride 4x4 wheelers all around there when we camped there. It had the bus trail, stairstep, and a few others I can't think of the names right now.

tuff2010 08-02-2011 09:35 PM

The Land around Honobia (76,000 acres) is a Wildlife management area that is open to the public, via a State land access permit, the roads in the unit get really crooked and go in every dang direction , makes for a nice drive..

The Bus you speak of sets about 30yards off the main K-trail road that runs east and west, what ya gotta becareful about is getting off the trail and entering private property.


In all it took us most of the day to run the 70 miles..

We are talking about running it all the way one weekend once it cools off.

TJamieD 08-02-2011 10:23 PM

Let me know when you decide you're going. I'd love to do that trip.

ok when we used to camp down there we used to climb the "bus" trail with the jeep guys on our 4 wheelers. but we came from the bottom of the hill. we also atch them do a few other like seismograph and 3 stage. but we all camped in the lower part , whicjh i think is all private now( sucks big time) we used to go to the cabin and mckinley rock as well.

tuff2010 08-04-2011 06:51 PM

Yeap, the bus sets just off of a turn off that goes south, the road that goes south has private property signs setting on it about 20yds down the road.. I think the only way to Mckinley rock is a southern entrance closer to Clayton now..

What is the difficulty like for a stock tj if I were to take it all the way in to Arkansas?

Yeah, I got nothing in the Enid thread I started either.

You guys might want to look at this Kiamichi Trail (K-Trail) Adventure: The good, the bad, and the ????. It looks like a stocker could go pretty far.

Interesting, the fire in the road. I'm on page two seeing Toyota's thinking a Wrangler should be able to handle it. Again aside from more fun hitting the trail with others seems smart.

Im with ya there.

Haven't been to K-Trail in years, but back then it wasn't too bad. Lots of washed out places and some places where tree limbs will scratch your rig, but that's about it. I grew up driving all over those mountains, but haven't been on em since it turned into Honobia Creek.

A housing development?

Our area used to be big in logging. Still is, to a point. Quite a bit of land around us was owned by Weyerhauser and they allowed public use of the land for free. They sold a lot of it to John Hancock Insurance Company, and it's now the Honobia Creek Wildlife Management Area. You can buy land access permits, but I'm not sure how much they cost. I haven't been back there in years.

okranger6 09-13-2011 05:25 PM

I think U can find the land use permit cost on the Oklahoma Wildlife homepage, U have to pay it to hunt there. But land use is land use. Go Polks!!

tuff2010 09-18-2011 09:29 AM

Sorry, that I have not been back to this thread in a while...

You will be just fine in a stock jeep, mine was stock when I ran it, beautiful views.

But you will have plenty of tree limbs to scratch your jeep....the road is over grown but with the lack of rain this year it might not be that bad... I might make the drive up to run it next month if things work out..

And yes, if you want to do it legally you will need a land use permit granted by the state, if memory serves me right they are between 20-30 bucks..

Mfuryous 09-18-2011 11:20 AM

Sounds and looks like a killer trail. Id like to take a trip there during fall.

I would like to do part of the Kiamichi Trail too. I don't have a winch or big tires, so I would like to not try it alone. Anyone planning a trip where I could tag along?

I would like to plan one for this or next month. Maybe a weekend deal. Drive up sat morning, ride the trail all day sat and camp sat night and head back Sunday. I'm stock but plan on putting a 4" lift real soon. Any one else want to go?

oklj 10-02-2011 08:44 PM

I might be up for this adventure.

Hudweiser 10-02-2011 10:07 PM

This sounds great, including the camping.

TJamieD 10-03-2011 08:51 AM

Depending on when you plan it, we may be in.

Mfuryous 10-04-2011 03:43 PM

I'm wide open. I figured late oct early nov but it's up to everyone. I'm driving from Tulsa so we can meet up and drive down or just meet there. I've never been but my girlfriend loves to research and plan.
