Saving Turkey Mountain was one of the best moves Tulsa has made in awhile Unfortunately, Tulsa has a history of tearing down classic structures and overbuilding on open spaces such as this So I was very happy to see that citizens stood up to fight the silly mall idea

This is a great place to hike or bike near Tulsa. Lots of trails, and a very peaceful escape from the city.

Love to go for a run with my family and our lab here. It feels like you are not in the city. The only problem is that the trails are not marked very well.

I love the outdoors and genuinely appreciate it when larger cities invest into more rural activities. Turkey Mountain has been by far the highlight of my trip! It has so many different trails and options. It's great for a run, casual stroll, dog walking, and biking! It also offers great views of the downtown area and the Arkansas river. It... More

I have done several organized races at Turkey Mountain. Beautiful views of the Arkansas river from the east side. I recommend it for a great workout.

I try to go regularly. It is a wilderness and a park and I love to take my dogs there, but it is sometimes too crowded: Bikers, dog walkers, joggers all compete with local couples looking for a romantic amble, and families with youngsters running amok in every direction can detract from the enjoyment of nature. Tulsa definitely needs more... More

Have hiked the various trails here many times. Often brought our small dog who could navigate these trails as well without any issues. Only negative is need much more parking. I guess this speaks to how popular this place is.

Turkey Mountain has multiple trails for different level of hiking. I have hiked them all and each one has it own personality. Even thought you are in the middle of Tulsa it is secluded along the Arkansas River. Great for family, take you dog or just get out by yourself. You can also ride your bike or take a run.... More
