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,...

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.
