Road to Upper Spavinaw
When you only have time for a quickie.
If you have a favorite ride you'd like to share contact us for details on how you can submit it.We showed you some highlights along Highway 20 in our second episode. The riding around Salina and Spavinaw is well know as some of Northeast Oklahoma's very best. But the next time you're cruising the Copperhead Trail look for this lesser known road that runs between OK-20 and Kenwood Road.
N4559 is better known as Eucha Road or Eucha Dam Road. A couple of years ago the Cherokee Nation repaved this stretch, and the result is a perfect road for a Sunday ride, with wide sweepers and awesome views of Lake Eucha (aka Upper Spavinaw). The road runs from the small town of Eucha, or New Eucha technically speaking, past the Spavinaw Widlife Management Area, under the Upper Spavinaw Dam and on south to the small community of Kenwood.
Try making a loop from Salina up through Spavinaw, then back south through Eucha and Kenwood.
