There are hiking trails in the park and a nice view down and across the Arkansas river. The most interesting part is the history and legends associated with it. There are Viking runes stones present and Spanish marks said to mark the presence of a lost treasure from the days of the conquistadors. There are stories of a vanished cave... More

Turkey Mountain is a beautiful place to get away from the City, and pretend you're in the wilderness. Many trails for various hiking and mountain biking levels. Horseback riding (bring your own horse). Many people run the trails, we used the trails to train for hiking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Enjoyable!

My wife and I enjoyed a nice hike into the Turkey Mountain park. I agree with another reviewer that many trails need to be better marked. There are also a number of "side trails" that are fun and interesting if you want to explore. I remember coming to the park when I was young... 50 years ago, and it was... More

Nice place for a hike. It's especially nice on a cold fall day when all the threes are brilliant magenta, yellow and orange - or even after a snowfall. On such occasions, you may have it all to yourself. However, it can be a little crowded at times and could be better maintained.

A bit sceptical about the name until we visited. Its across the river from Tulsa but could be a million miles away. We went at dusk and stayed until after dark. We saw deer, owls, armadillos, possums, rabbits, toads, and pools alive with the sound o cricket frogs and others which I have yet to identify, while the air was... More

Some reviews I read say the trails are marked well, but I did not find this to be the case. What I expected to be a 30 minute stroll on a trail that would circle back to the starting point turned into a much longer walk and looking for markers that couldn't be found. My shih tzu is good on... More

Nice place west of Tulsa to rock climb, hike, bike. Picnic too. A very pretty location that is popular with local outdoor enthusiasts. Sorry, no snow skiing here....don't get carried away haha.

We hiked and had a great time. The trails are gentle and our 6 and 8 year old easily kept up. Lots of bicyclists were out enjoying the park that day on separate trails. Lovely outing spot to burn off some energy!

You get a complete 360 view from the mountain. You can start at the bottom and hike or bike up, or you can drive to the top and have a nice lunch and walk. Best lace in tulsa to see a sunset!
