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).
Overall great scenic trail for bike and foot traffic. Little tricky near the tracks where there is no trail. Loved the scenic old town area and sports area on west side and the over hwy pedestrian bridge. Early evenings in residential areas be cautious of children playing near the trail if riding bike. Mostly level and easy travel trail.
We rode the trail on the south side (connecting from the Grand Trail). The River trail was wide and well-marked and it was SO nice that the trail went under the cross streets--instead of actually having to cross them. The day we rode the section east of the boathouse was closed, but I think that was a temporary closure. Also, the area around the stockyards smells like a stockyards--which is to be expected but still worth noting.
This trail definitely passes through an eclectic mixture of environments. For the most part, the trail is well-marked. In a couple of places, however, we had to stop and think about which way to go. In two sections (a few blocks each) the trail required either riding on the sidewalk or on the road (which was not very busy). This trail crosses numerous streets. Most are not busy and are easily crossed, but several of the crossings require stopping at traffic lights. There's quite a bit of road noise in spots. In spite of those drawbacks, it's very nice to have a trail in town and we thoroughly enjoyed our ride.
