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.

If you like challenging hiking and biking this area is for you. Be careful as some mountain bike trails are for serious riders.

Having lived here since 1982, it was a recent visit from my Austin Texas daughter to get us there! I never took her there as a little girl, but we sure had fun hiking all over the beautiful well kept trails as a mother daughter duo! The new facilities are very well done and this place offers a bit of... More

When visiting this part of Tulsa we always stop here for a walk. My dog loves to climb the large rocks while I enjoy the easy walking areas. Polite and nice locals come here for walking, hiking, and bike riding with and without dogs. The calming effect of the park needs to be forever kept the same, yet improvement for... More

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,...
