Bell Cow Lake Trail System
Chandler, OK 74834
Open for equestrian use, hiking and mountain biking, the Bell Cow Lake Trail System runs along the shoreline of Bell Cow Lake near Chandler. Featuring two out-and-back trails, this system is mostly used by equestrians, and is considered to be easy and accessible for beginners. The trails share a trailhead, which is located within the Area C equestrian campground.
Flat Rock Trail: This trail is a total of 12.4 miles out and back. Starting at the trailhead, head west on Flat Rock Trail. This route meanders near the shoreline of the lake for the most part, and crosses some shallow streams along the way. The terrain is mostly even, with the path taking you through wooded areas as well as open spaces. The trail curves around the contours of the lake shoreline, but overall will take you to the northwest. Towards the end of the route, you'll come across a fork in the road. Going to the right will take you on a loop that stays close to the shoreline, then back around to the main path. To stay on the main path, keep to the left. At the end of the trail, there is a turnaround loop; this will take you away from the lake, then circle back to the main path from which you came.
