I live in a suburb and discovered this place about 5 years ago when I started trail running. I still occasionally find myself on a an unfamiliar trail! Bring a map or your smartphone if you are at all directionally challenged. If you want to have a tree-hugging, nature-communing moment, this is the place, with wildlife (deer, wild cats, rabbits,...

I don't have to go far to feel like im away from it all. Its really a nice peaceful tract of nature. Its too bad a stupid outlet mall is going to be built not too far tho..I hope it is not visible from park.

Turkey mountain is the best place in Tulsa for hiking and biking trails. Great view of Tulsa is a plus.

What a great place to take your family for a fun hike. My only complaint is the numerous dogs not on leashes. It's posted as a rule, but some dog owners don't comply with the rule. Other than that, we love hiking here.

My husband and I spend most of our time here hiking the trails; it's perfect for dogs. We have also ridden our bikes along the West side of the Riverpark Trail and enjoyed the remote and arboreal features of the riding path. Many wonderful birds - have seen a painted bunting there (years ago). The parking lot and facilities are... More

If you love hiking or walking this is a great place. Trails with different levels to appeal to everyone and beautiful views overlooking the river. A must see for any one who loves a bit of out doors.

Turkey Mountain is a beloved hideaway in the middle of Tulsa. I ride my mountain bike out there and I do a little trail running. There are a lot of access points and it is worth finding them to see which fit your needs. I tend to make my way in and go away from the parking area. There is... More

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.
