Written Directions

Start at Fort Gibson OK and take SH 80 northbound for approx. 16 miles to the town of Hulbert. When going north from Fort Gibson, be sure to take the hairpin turn to the right before you cross the Fort Gibson Lake dam.

Scenery

As you travel along the route you will catch glimpes of the river, lake and dense forest.The route rises and falls with the river bottom and the hills surrounding Fort Gibson Lake. Most of the route is tree covered. Along the route you will pass through Old Fort Gibson which was built in 1824 and was at one time the furthest western outpost for the United States. The fort was also used for American Indian removal from the SE portion of the US following the Trail Of Tears

Drive Enjoyment

Road surface is fair but gravel is present at private drives.

Tourism Opportunities

None on the route but fuel is availible at both Hulbert and Fort Gibson.

Been riding this route since I was a kid on a 125. It goes through Wildwood Rec Area so we called it the Wildwood Run. At the hairpin turn, take a short detour over the dam to check out the dam overlook. This is beautiful country. The roads have been re-surfaced so are pretty smooth. Watch out for gravel at the driveways. Also, Hulbert is a notorious speed trap as tickets are the towns biggest source of revenue so watch your speed.
