There are some awesome bike trails with ramps and jumps throughout. Tons of different trails for the experienced or unexperienced. If you have a GPS I would recommend at least marking your waypoint at parking because you can get turned around on the trails fairly easily. There is also a paved bike trail that runs along the side. They finally... More

We love this place and take our dogs for hikes on the trails. Go early in the day and you may see people taking trail rides with their horses. This place is known for there excellent dirt bike trails. Bald eagle sightings are common.

Hands down this is the best place to go for a run to release stress. The paths are ridiculously fun. Very family friendly. Once in awhile you can find deer nearby. They even have bathrooms and water mist.

Hiking, nature, wildlife, urban escape, it's here. On separate occasions I've seen a turkey and a deer. Easy to get lost. Color coded trails. Red (.8 mile 20 minutes on foot), blue (1.5 mile 40 minutes), yellow (4.4 miles 2-3 hours), and pink (5.7 miles 2-3 hours). Colored spots on trees and some signs show the way. Trail map is... More

I go to ORU, so Turkey Mountain is just down the road. I really enjoy going out to Turkey Mountain whenever I want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The best time to go is whenever others won't be out there. That's when you feel the most peace of the area, but it is a... More

If you're an avid hiker or just want to go for a casual stroll through the woods - Turkey Mountain will not disappoint. The map located at the Trail Head allows you to chose your own path based on your abilities or desires - color coded of course. Animals are also welcome to share the journey. There are many rock...

We have been going to Turkey Mountain for a couple years. First it is free, and the trails are very nice and depending on how good a shape you are in, it could be a little challenging. Most of the trails are good for mountain biking. Make sure to bring along water as it can be very hot in the... More

What other city Tulsa's size has this? Over 38 miles of trails, right within the city limits. Very nice trail head. Restrooms available. Pavilions for picnics. Man-made boulders for climbing. Safe parking. Some trails are pretty technical, if on a mountain bike.
