I've hiked and biked all over this "mountain" More of a big hill, but definitely a favorite of mine! I love how you can travel to the edge of a major city and be in a complete wilderness area! Thanks to the the George Kaiser Family Foundation, this wonderful place will be around for our kids to enjoy for years... More

Beautiful but natural trails to get lost in or to find yourself in. Quiet and peaceful place to enjoy a more leisurely walk, brisk hike or run. And if you're into mountain biking, this is for you. Turkey Mountain is high on my dog, Molly's, list of must do.

It's so nice to have an area like this right in town. I live close by and use it all the time. There is an asphalt jogging/biking trail that goes for miles along the perimeter of the area. This trail started on the Arkansas River years ago and now spurs in various directions for tens of miles making it easy... More

Little hidden gem. Different levels of hiking. Nice view from the top of the mountain. I will return!

If you enjoy hiking and like trails that are challenging you should go hiking at Turkey Mountain. This place is also bike friendly and has a lot of rugged trails for mountain bikes and hikers alike.

This place did not really live up to my expectations. While there are a lot of trails running through there, the people that frequent the place are very rude. I asked about 3 people questions and got a snappy rude answer as they continued on. So unless you are a serious biker/hiker, steer clear. These people take this stuff serious.... More

This hiking, biking and running paradise is one of Tulsa's treasures. With a multitude of color coded trails and miles and miles to explore, this mountain is one of the things that makes Tulsa special. Watch out for the roots and rocks when you're running, and some of the remote less traveled trails have poison ivy if you venture off... More

Love the hiking trails. Neither of us are athletic but we like to go out and hike up and look over the river. Beautiful area and glad it's so close to us.

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
