Hiking trails are great with easy, level sections as well as steeper, rocky slopes. Trails are rated by difficulty and open to mountain biking and horseback riding. Great facilities at the trailhead--flushing toilets and water fountain--with parking that fills up quickly on nice days. One...More

Had a great time mountain biking the trails on Turkey Mountain. We were able to rent our gear at Tom's rental just across the river from the mountain. It is defintely not a place for beginers that is for sure. The trails are beautiful.

Plenty of parking the day we went, lots of great trails to explore. Just be careful, some of the trails on the back side can get steep and technical.

If you're into hiking or mountain biking/trail riding, this place is for you. There are several marked trails with varying degrees of difficulty and length. Would not go after dark as it's not lit by lights.

After living in Tulsa for 2 years, my son & i finally visited Turkey Mtn two weeks ago, and we had a great time hiking! So many trails, and you can choose the level of difficulty. We will go back soon!

With over 20 miles of trails, you can hike or bike all day. There are various trails, each with their own levels of difficulty, catering to families, experienced hikers, bikers or runners. Great place to go with kids or dogs. Nice weekend days are busy!

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