I enjoy biking this trail, usually the section between Sperry and Skiatook. It is quiet and rural. Crossing a few non-busy roads is no bother to me. They've built a nice little park with water fountains and kiddie play area at the Skiatook end.
Nothing wrong with the trail itself, but it runs along the expressway so the vehicle traffic noise is really loud. This trail is only a mile from my house but I don't ride it any more. Give me a trail through some quiet woods any day.
Road this trail September 2018.Still very hot in Oklahoma but the river by your side made it feel a bit cooler.Wonderfully smooth surface and very well marked for bikers and walkers/runners.Various bronze statues and parks along the way add to the enjoyment.Very few cross roads but good to stay within the suggested speed.A well equipped bikeshop is on the south end.The Gathering Place had just opened and the trail goes right by.The park is not for bikes but walk it through and marvel at what the city has provided its residents and visitors.Mostly for younger children and a day there will provide them endless enjoyment.Several places to transition to the west bank to add a few extra miles and scenery.Great job Tulsa!
This is a wonderful flat trail. I have ridden it several times. It can be dangerous with mean dogs. I have run into them more that once. I would love to ride it more often but I hesitate. Be careful. I wish there was a way to contain them.
Great trail that runs north to Sperry and Skiatook. Well maintained thru these towns and there is some nice country to see. It goes thru the center of Skiatook Central Park which is a very nice park. It is currently being expanded farther to the north of Skiatook going into Barnsdall and hopefully into the City of Pawhuska. The additional trail to the north will bring even more great country to ride, jog or walk thru.
Have ridden all sections of this trail and it is always well maintained. It is paved the entire way and has very few busy street crossings. I do not recommend going on this trail alone for certain areas. There are great parking lots at the trail head at Hatbox Field and at the Music Hall of Fame. The section of the trail from Solara Hospital to Main street is the neatest due to it being mostly wooded and there is a tunnel under the highway. The City of Muskogee does a great job with upkeep.
I regularly train on all sections of the trail. It is deceptively hilly in parts which adds to my conditioning.
I use it everyday to get to and from work. It is very useful and convenient. It helps so that I can skip all the traffic and be on time to work. Love it!!!
Just a transition between trails, but the park is tired and worn, haven't seen anyone else on this trail and have used it many times
Rode this trail from Tulsa to Skiatook and back. Not that much to see but if you want miles and want not much traffic this is a trail for you. Better make sure you have at least one spare tube lots of glass on the trial
This is a nice little neighborhood trail with lots of beautiful color in the spring. The only slight downfall to it is the road noise from I-44
Overall, this trail is a great improvement for the city, like totally awesome, but definitely could use clean up and maintenance for pedestrians to feel safer. I'm a Muskogee native who moved away as a teenager and now I come back to visit from time to time. I have fond memories growing up close to this trail, in the Meadow Brook housing addition off of Border Ave very close to where this trail runs. If I remember correctly, a part of the trail is an old railway line where my brother and I use play and walk along as kids. I also explored the field (where Hatbox is and where the trail U's around off of Border ave) area a lot as a child. Walking along the trail in the sunshine a couple of days ago was an amazing experience for me that brought up old memories and I kept thinking it would have been perfect for us growing up, much better than the seedy railway it once was. It's very quiet and surrounded by trees, brush, and some housing additions. The sound of frogs and birds was beautiful. I walked the entire 3.5 miles from the Music Museum to Hatbox field and enjoyed the peace and quiet very much, as well as seeing Muskogee again through fresh eyes. I saw about seven cyclists and one other pedestrian during my two hour walk. I'm an experienced walker and have walked on a lot of trails and through a lot of cities since I've lived in Muskogee. However, I agree with some of the other comments above. It's seedy in some areas and I picked a heavy walking stick once I got close to the bridge because I was mostly worried about stray dogs or stray predators since I'm a woman. There were a lot of backyards I passed by with huge mean looking pitbulls, rotweilers, and other dogs that didn't have sturdy fencing. That said,luckily, I didn't run into any problems along the way and would definitely walk the trail again (with a stick stick in hand!). Also, the site of men in the fields from time to time startled me, but they seemed preoccupied working. There's a lot of old trees, trash, and shrubs that could be cleared of course, also maybe a water fountain or a small convenient store could be installed on such a long path because I was dying of thirst along the way. It should also be said that Muskogee is known for being backwoods and old fashioned not for being modern and with the times though I hope that it catches up with us soon! The city itself seems to need a lot of restructuring, jobs, diversity, and money to connect with tourism and it's citizens more. Not sure about installing a fence, but more pleasantries would be a bonus for walkers and also an extension back to main street would have been extremely practical, since my car was parked there! I'd love to see some more progress here to better the experience for visitors like me and tourists coming through regularly or for the first time. But also improvement should be done mostly for the Okees who are there everyday with their families and friends!
