Follow in the tracks of early pioneers who risked it all to move west in their pursuit of a better life during the Butterfield Biker Bash in Wilburton. The Butterfield Trail was the main artery for travel through Indian Territory from the east, and this event highlights some of Latimer County's historical locations along the route. Retrace the path of countless pioneers and gold rush treasure seekers as they made their journey west on the Butterfield Trail during this historical bike ride. 

Created in 1858, the Butterfield Overland Mail Route stretched from St. Louis to San Francisco, carving 2,795 miles as the longest overland mail route in United States history. The journey could be made in 21 days on average using stagecoaches and mud wagons pulled by teams of four horses. As travelers made their way west across Indian Territory to the Red River, the trail cut right through what is now Latimer County. Of the 139 original stations on the trail, five of them were located in Latimer County. Modern roads have taken the place of the dusty trail, but historical markers have been placed at each of the station locations in the county. 

Nestled in some of the most scenic and picturesque landscapes in the state, Latimer County has drawn visitors from all over the country for decades. With two of the only east-west running mountain ranges in the United States, the San Bois Mountains in the northern part of the county and the Winding Stair Mountains in the south, see Oklahoma as you have never seen it before during the Butterfield Biker Bash.
