Hefner Lake offers athletes and different levels of physical fitness to many. You can bike around the lake, roller blade or walk the trails and sidewalks around the area. There is also sail boating and kite surfing. Fun to watch activities.

We come here to bike around the entire lake. It's a 10 mile trail. Super fun and the safest bike trail around.

Facilties are great, always ample parking and accessible picnic areas. Great trails for hiking, running, or walking. There is almost always a nice breeze, so it is refreshing in the heat of the summer. We have a great time every time.
