Hats off the Oklahoma City!!! The trail system around the area is fantastic. Other large cities should go to OC and ride the trail system. The trails are all connected. We started on the Oka River Trail which intersected the River trail which intersected other trails. I did 50 miles and could have done much more. We were only in OC for two days passing through on our trip around the USA. I would rate the OC trail system at the top of trails that I have done in America.
Leaving from the river, the trail is currently closed at Reno due to construction closer to 10th. Still a beautiful ride thru the trees, near ponds over a super nice surface.
This is a wonderful flat trail. I have ridden it several times. It can be dangerous with mean dogs. I have run into them more that once. I would love to ride it more often but I hesitate. Be careful. I wish there was a way to contain them.
This is by far the best OKC trail for inline speed/fitness skating. It has one of the smoothest surfaces; it only crosses one road, which has very little traffic; and it joins with the Overholster Trail and the Oklahoma River Trail (South side). (Regarding its joining with the OK River Trail: The "cul-de-sac" actually leads to a bridge which you cross--on dedicated trail space--to join with the OK River Trail past a hotel.)
I’ve lived all over the US and some parts of Europe and these are the best and most extensive trails I’ve seen. Nice to be able to ride both sides of the river and on up to Overholser without hitting the street.
One reviewer mentioned flats — my first few rides on the trail I had flats every time, so switched tires to thorn resistant 25s, no flats since.
One surprise is along these many miles of trails, not one drinking fountain anywhere. Perplexing.
This is a really nice trail. It doesn’t have any really steep hills and it winds around lakes and alongside the river. There are only two places where it crosses streets—at SW 15 and at a dead-end cul-de-sac. Neither crossing has much traffic. My only complaint is that it doesn’t connect with the Oklahoma River Trails to the east. There is about a 0.75-mile gap between the two.
This is a nice trail that connects the Oklahoma Rivers Trails with the Bert Cooper Trails at Lake Hefner. The only downside is the trail crosses major thoroughfares at Reno Ave., NW 23, NW 50, NW 63 and the Northwest Expressway, all of which result in long delays for the light to change. In addition, it crosses NW 16 at an intersection where eastbound and westbound traffic doesn’t have to stop or even slow down.
Great trail that runs north to Sperry and Skiatook. Well maintained thru these towns and there is some nice country to see. It goes thru the center of Skiatook Central Park which is a very nice park. It is currently being expanded farther to the north of Skiatook going into Barnsdall and hopefully into the City of Pawhuska. The additional trail to the north will bring even more great country to ride, jog or walk thru.
I get more flats riding this trail than anyplace else. Occasional glass slivers from broken bottles caused by kids and homeless that occupy the area. Dried pine needles are deadly if you leave the trail. The path is fairly clean except when the city cuts the grass. I have 25mm tires so occasional flats can happen, but some local riders refer to this area as "The Flats" and for good reason.
I love yo run the trail. There are four bridges on the trail the first one is 3/10 Mike in and very long. Right now 3 of the 4 bridges have art murals on them. The 4 th at the wister end will be done soon! Lots of kids ride their bikes here and lots more adults run this trail. It is a very safe area. I've been out there alone at 3:30-4am to stay out of the heat
Have ridden all sections of this trail and it is always well maintained. It is paved the entire way and has very few busy street crossings. I do not recommend going on this trail alone for certain areas. There are great parking lots at the trail head at Hatbox Field and at the Music Hall of Fame. The section of the trail from Solara Hospital to Main street is the neatest due to it being mostly wooded and there is a tunnel under the highway. The City of Muskogee does a great job with upkeep.
Husband and I rode this trail in July on a cooler day. Started at Jo Allyn Lowe Park where there is a nice parking lot. We rode to Johnstone park and back which we guessed to be around 18 miles round trip. The trail is beautiful and clean. Encountered quite a few joggers and a few cyclists. Our favorite part was the suspension bridge, but the entire length of trail that we rode we loved. We were already planning our next ride there before we left.
