Written Directions

Start 4 miles south of Noble Ok on Highway 77 and Slaughterville Rd. Turn east go 18 miles to Highway 102/Tribbey Ok. Turn south on Hwy 102 go appx 9 miles Wanette Ok, go though town to the end of the road. Turn west this should be Earl street, go 5-6 blocks and the road will curve south, you are now on Railroad Bridge Road. Turn west on 130th go 2 blocks, turn south on Johnsonville rd continue to Byars Ok. Turn west on Highway 59 to Wayne Ok. Turn North on Highway 77 and this will take you back to Noble Ok.

Scenery

This route will take you over rolling hills with lots of curves no stop signs with the exception of major intersections. Lots of hills with some sharply weaving areas on the road near Tribbey, heading south the road has sweeping curves and the portion just past Wanette the trees provide a full canopy. The portion between Wanette and Byars Okla the trees make you feel like you are in a tunnel and then you come upon an old railroad bridge. The highlight is this bridge that goes over the South Canadian River between Wanette and Byars Ok. It was converted for vehicles that stretches all the way across the South Canadian River. The bridge is long and narrow it was converted from a railroad. Built in 1902. The trees make a canopy south of Wanette.Very unusual for around here. Highway 59 takes you back through open fields mostly straight and flat wide open area. The remaining drive is open country. The ride was beautiful.

Drive Enjoyment

pavement is great. The route has equal portions of hills curves and flat areas. Overall good roads where you will find sharp curves, sweeping curves, hills and flat areas on this route.

Tourism Opportunities

The railroad bridge crossing the south canadian river is where we stopped to stretch. Had to drive over it a couple. loved it. Great Chicken Fry restaurant on hwy 77 before you get to Purcell, always crowded.

This is one of my favorite rides. I've been to the railroad bridge and traveled the stretch between Tribbey and Slaughterville numerous times before finding this site. There are over 20 curves (some very sharp) in the 3 mile stretch west of Tribbey, fun ride, but be careful there are spots with patches of gravel and uneven pavement. The railroad bridge over the Canadian River is fun to cross. I too had to go across several times.

This ride is good for the area and for those that live close by but it is certainly not a "Need to Ride" road. Crossing the railroad bridge is fun but he rest of the roads are just regular old country roads. This would be a good road for a novice that is more concerned with riding in different conditions than scenery.

Roads are in good shape for oklahoma, It is a must to watch for road signs and have a map or directions written there are a few turn offs that are in rural areas and not marked but, it is an amazing ride.
