The Oklahoma River Trails provide a smooth, level pathway through downtown Oklahoma City free of motorized vehicle crossings. The tree-lined trail follows the north and south banks of its namesake, offering scenic views of the waterway, parks and wetland areas. A highlight of the route is the Oklahoma National Stockyards, founded in 1910 and, at one time, the nation's top cattle market.

I found this trail was very well taking care and well laid out. The only thing I didn't like was that the wind was blowing at about 10-15 MPH and I got some unpleasent smells along the way.
