Lovely walk and only a stones throw from the city, really lovey day out. Would avoid on a very hot day and remember to take LOADS of water!! Good for families, couples, dogs, and young children.

You park your car and then choose the trail you want to walk or bike and go for it. There are trails for the more hardy and trails for the less fit type. Make sure you bring water, especially when the weather is warm. Really...More

My wife & I went there to hike with our daughter. It is a short drive from downtown Tulsa & there at plenty of trails that are well marked with varying degrees of difficulty that allow you to get back to nature.

Turkey mountain is fantastic! Tulsa needs more outdoor experiences like it. Kids need time to play in the woods!

I agree with Dudetime. The best time is what is best for you. Spring, Summer, or Fall unless you are a real winter person.
Does anyone know if the trails here get overgrown in the late summer? I'm trying to stay away from ticks and fleas which are both bad this year. I have never been to Tulsa but will be visiting in late September. Are there any wide natural paths?
