“Urban wilderness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Turkey Mountain has been greatly improved in the past several years. The greater access has allowed more hikers and mountain bikers to use the area. Even when crowded, it is not uncommon to not see many people on the trails. The trail difficulty varies and some can be steep. There is a nice new parking lot and bathroom facilities. The trail also connects to the west side of River Parks.

“Perfect for the outdoors person”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great parking and easy access (besides the construction on 71st st {2013}]. It leads to the bike/running trail around riverside and trail courses. Horse parking so you can bring your horse and trot around. Very cool

“Great hiking without having to go far...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We've been hiking on Turkey Mountain for years; it is especially nice now that it has been cleaned up, the trails marked well and security has tightened. Our dogs love swimming in the creeks and the lake.

“What a great place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

As someone who lives in the flatlands of Kansas smack dab in the middle of crop and cattle country, I'm so jealous of you Tulsa folks! Take advantage of such a cool location in your city and enjoy it. I took the yellow trail and only got confused once. I found the map available at the entrance helpful and very detailed. Can't wait to go back.
