How is Tulsa and the Tulsa area for mountain biking?

Hi, I'm looking into moving to Tulsa but am curious about the mountain biking scene. I checked the Trailforks app and saw just a few spots to ride. I'm coming from Southern California which is loaded with trails so this was a little concerning and I was wondering if there were trails that may be unlisted.

I'm also looking to bring my emtb and am curious if it is allowed on the trails. Thanks in advance.

Contact Phat Tire bike shop, I think that have a store there. I just made a trip to the Bentonville, AR store to buy an emtb. Tulsa is not that far, and I had no idea that the area was a mtb Mecca of sorts.

How is the ebiking going? Have you run into any issues riding it on trails?

Having a blast, probably would not have returned to mountain biking if not for the electric bikes. Mostly riding gravel roads and the occasional trail when dry. No issues with trails, I check with the local shop(that my friend used to own), about any rules about e bikes, was glad to see he owned an TREK Rail and he said no. Well, the only issue I've had, cold weather, nobody out riding and trails have been wet. Also, I googled the distance from Tusla to Bentonville area, further than I thought.

Okay, good to know. I have an ebike waiting for more trails if I do move.
