Tulsa lacks much in the way of wilderness to explore aside from Turkey Mountain and Red Bud so this is the place to go if you are looking to "get away" from everything, meaning it tends to be pretty crowded when the weather is nice...More

We hiked the trails for about 2.5 hours enjoying the valley and river views. The trails are not real well marked so keep track of were you are, we did grab a compass before leaving the parking lot. There is 2 parking areas- one up...More

I agree with Dudetime. The best time is what is best for you. Spring, Summer, or Fall unless you are a real winter person.
