The Osage Prairie Trail follows the corridor of the old Midland Valley Rail. The trail links Oklahoma State University in Tulsa with the town of Skiatook to the north. The trail is lighted in places for night use, and passes through both urban and rural landscapes. The southern end is mostly suburban, while around Skiatook and Sperry the trail takes on a more countryside atmosphere.
Parking and Trail Access
You can access the Osage Prairie Trail in several places along its route and many trailheads have bike racks, water fountains, parking and benches.
In Skiatook, park on Locust Street just south of Rogers Blvd. In downtown Sperry, park just off Main Street just west of Oak St.
In Tulsa, parking is available off E. 56th Street N., near where it crosses the trail; near the trail intersection with Mohawk Blvd.; and at OSU campus.
Well Worth the Trip
This is a very nice trail. Prefectly flat and straight. It is well maintained. However, there are limited facilities. We had to use the restrooms at a public library about two blocks from the Tulsa trailhead. About 6 miles from the Skiatook Trailhead ...
50/50 shaded path with wonderful scenery and good services. Highly recommended!
