Motorcycle Rides: Rune Stone Ride

An 81-Mile Ride in Eastern Oklahoma

An incredibly scenic route in eastern Oklahoma, the Rune Stone Ride is a twisted, 81-mile trail leading cyclists from the city of Broken Bow to Heavener.

From Broken Bow, ride north on U.S. Route 259 past Broken Bow Lake and the Hochatown State Park. Continue north through the Ouachita National Forest for more than 60 miles until your reach a “T” on your route – the end of US-259 N. Make a left and zoom northwest on U.S. Route 59 – a scenic byway passing some of the most beautiful sights in eastern Oklahoma. Continue along US-59 Scenic N for 15 miles until you reach the small town of Heavener – home of the Runestone State Park.

Looking for a break from the saddle? Ride just 13 miles north of Heavener to the city of Poteau, where you can rest from the ride at the Best Western hotel in Poteau.

For activities along the Rune Stone Ride, spend some time in Broken Bow before hitting the open road. Stroll through the Gardner Mansion and Museum before mounting up, or spend some time at the Indian Memorial Museum – the perfect stop for riders who also consider themselves history buffs.

If you’re already on your way to Heavener, make a pit stop at Hochatown State Park for a picnic along 180 miles of shoreline encircling the scenic Broken Bow Lake. It’s all here in southeastern Oklahoma.
