This is by far the best OKC trail for inline speed/fitness skating. It has one of the smoothest surfaces; it only crosses one road, which has very little traffic; and it joins with the Overholster Trail and the Oklahoma River Trail (South side). (Regarding its joining with the OK River Trail: The "cul-de-sac" actually leads to a bridge which you cross--on dedicated trail space--to join with the OK River Trail past a hotel.)
I’ve lived all over the US and some parts of Europe and these are the best and most extensive trails I’ve seen. Nice to be able to ride both sides of the river and on up to Overholser without hitting the street.
One reviewer mentioned flats — my first few rides on the trail I had flats every time, so switched tires to thorn resistant 25s, no flats since.
One surprise is along these many miles of trails, not one drinking fountain anywhere. Perplexing.
This is a really nice trail. It doesn’t have any really steep hills and it winds around lakes and alongside the river. There are only two places where it crosses streets—at SW 15 and at a dead-end cul-de-sac. Neither crossing has much traffic. My only complaint is that it doesn’t connect with the Oklahoma River Trails to the east. There is about a 0.75-mile gap between the two.
This is a nice trail that connects the Oklahoma Rivers Trails with the Bert Cooper Trails at Lake Hefner. The only downside is the trail crosses major thoroughfares at Reno Ave., NW 23, NW 50, NW 63 and the Northwest Expressway, all of which result in long delays for the light to change. In addition, it crosses NW 16 at an intersection where eastbound and westbound traffic doesn’t have to stop or even slow down.
I get more flats riding this trail than anyplace else. Occasional glass slivers from broken bottles caused by kids and homeless that occupy the area. Dried pine needles are deadly if you leave the trail. The path is fairly clean except when the city cuts the grass. I have 25mm tires so occasional flats can happen, but some local riders refer to this area as "The Flats" and for good reason.
On this 99 degree Saturday in mid-July, I walked this trail to check it off my list of local urban trails. This trail is a bit scary is some areas that go under bridges, but overall it was a nice trail. Each end of the trail has a park (though the south end park is simply a swing set). The north end is located about a half block away from Rotary Park. I don't recommend walking alone.
This easy to access trail provides an easy walk with beautiful scenery. The park description doesn't mention it, but there is parking at the north end of the trail just south of 39th St (Route 66). There is access to the top of the dam about half way on the trail. It's fun to walk across the water on the dam's edge. One side of the trail offers a lake view, and the other side offers views of some lovely residences that were pretty fabulous in their day. An enjoyable city walk.
This walk was absolutely beautiful. For the person who appreciates city views, sculpture, and. good food, you will love this trail. My life-long friend, Jerry Breathwit, and I made an afternoon of this short 2-mile round-trip walk. And KD's was the perfect lunch stop.
Just walked 3 miles of this trail starting at the science museum down and back about 3 miles each way. Made it to the 23rd street bridge. Kind of uneventful until you make it to the train tracks. Nice views and paved and maintained the hole way we went it was all sidewalk. Think it would be a very nice bicycle round trip.
This is an outstanding trail especially for pushing a wheelchair. We covered nearly the entire trail from the dam on the south end to the Route 66 bridge on the north end. I had no problems pushing my son's chair along the entire course! We are likely to frequent it often it is well maintained and offered no difficulty for the wheelchair.
Good riding but should ride in numbers and always be aware of surroundings. Gang markings throughout lower socioeconomic areas. Interesting characters walking the streets. At the West end it conveniently joins up with a great trail on the Oklahoma River (just ride down the path adjacent to the Dell computers campus).
