Good Friday/Saturday Ride

I'm looking for a few days of riding on Good Friday and Saturday (4/19-20) in Central or ETX, Eastern OK, or Western AR. That's a big spread, I know. I'd like to organize arrival on Thursday evening to camp, ride, camp, ride, and depart on Saturday evening to make it back to hang with the family on Easter.

I'm thinking about CTOR, Emma Long, Choctaw Nation Trail (Billy Creek Campground), or something in between.

I don't ride alone, so am looking for some other people to connect with for the long weekend. I can handle most any terrain, carry my own tools, know how to change a flat, and am a generally a easy-going, pleasant person to ride with as long as I don't get too hangry. I also don't mind stopping a lot and enjoying the scenery, but can wick it up just fine.

More about me on IG @DualSportDispatch

Who's interested?

Pig Trail, no wife this weekend?? lol
Indeed, she and my MIL will be going to a niece's volleyball tournament in Dallas.


I am very int with the same schedule. Will need to be back by Sat night. All the above areas sound great.
How's this for a plan?

Thursday 4/18: Arrive Billy Creek Campground
Friday 4/19: Ride Choctaw Nation Trail or a reasonable amount that gets us back to camp - partial CNT ride report from a trip a few months ago
Saturday 4/20: Ride Billy Creek Trail (~10 mile loop), depart for home by ~2pm

Another RR on Choctaw Nation Trail from ADVRider here.

I have plenty of firewood I can bring. The camp has running water and pit toilets and I should be able to get there early enough on Thursday to snag us a site or two. It is a Holiday weekend and it's first come, first served.

Who's in?

Irish? MitchnTX? You guys up for something? A trip to Red River, CTOR, Hidden Falls, or somewhere else sound more appealing?

I would love to go camp & ride Billy Creek again but the dates conflict. Hoping I can join next time. Thanks for posting.
