Grand Lake (Disney, OK)
"Pin It and Pop It" 11-time USA National #1 MotoTrials rider Pat Smage. Click here for the full video of Pat and Hannah's adventure vacation including riding this and many other rocks at Grand Lake.
Lots of rocks and some nice off-cambers and long hill climbs in the back.
This is a multi-use public facility (free to ride) and often there are a lot of jeeps and rock crawlers in the area. On special occasions you might see National Champ Pro riders in action.
Be sure to check out Hogan's Off-Road if you want to camp. He has full hook-ups, showers and restroom. Tell Russ Hi and thank him for supporting trials.
Dam Release Rates:
This is a nice USACE Graphic of the current release rates going on at the dam - remember flow rates over 14,000 means better to go elsewhere.
Hourly Release rates are here
If the water flows aren't too bad an alternative is to park and ride at "Disney East" - 1 mile further
east than usual, take a right at the yellow gate, follow the gravel
road, take a right at the fork on the in the road, go approx. 3\10ths
of a mile and park.
