Entrance To Trails  The Keystone Ancient Forest is a nature preserve of 1360 acres overlooking Keystone Lake.   Protected as a nature preserve, with much ecological history, the forest is one of the few cross timbers areas which have never been forested for timber or farmed.  The term cross timbers is used to describe the cross timbers eco region, an area of similar soils, plants, and animals that ranges from Texas northward through Oklahoma and into Southeast Kansas. The Keystone Ancient Forest is open for free hikes on the second Saturday of each month from 8am to 2pm.  Knowledgeable volunteer trail guides greet visitors near the entrance and can answer questions or even hike with you, if you choose.  Sand Springs Parks Department is always looking for new trail guide volunteers.  Trail guides are provided plenty of training by the Sand Springs Trail Guides.  Current trail guides have varied backgrounds from forestry, ecology, and geology although a love of the outdoors is all that is required.  Contact the Sand Springs Parks Department for more information.
