Bert Cooper Trails

Great trail

February, 2024 by rxrayinc

It doesn’t go all the way around the lake. Map shows it but 1/4 is future trail! Worth the ride while passing thy.

Spring Creek Trail (OK)

Great for MTB and Road bikes

February, 2024 by andymyers1985

FYI it’s longer than 2.5 miles. At least it is now. You can start west of 35 at the food places and take the trail all the way to the swimming beach at the lake. High speeds with a wide pavement trail for the road bikes. Theirs also unpaved off shoots for the MTBs. I park my Jeep at Integris on the east side of 35 and ride all the way to the water behind the parking lot for the swimming area

Bert Cooper Trails

Beautiful Scenery

February, 2024 by andymyers1985

This trail for the most part pretty flat, kinda boring. You also really can’t get any speed up safely because it’s usually pretty busy but… the scenery is beautiful from the little house to the marina. I went around sunset so watching the sunset on the water was something. It’s on my way home so I see myself hitting this one 1 lap from lighthouse to lighthouse at a steady pace takes around 30-40 minutes

Osage Prairie Trail

Osage Prairie Trail

December, 2023 by beckybilllings

It is a great ride in some places. There is still a bridge out so you have to take a detour which is dangerous. You also have to cross a lot of streets. We always stop at the little park in the center of Sperry where they have free WiFi courtesy of the Cherokee nation. There is also too much trash but at least someone took away the broken toilet.

Old Frisco Trail

Forgot to mention that parking is now at the trail head instead of Ballpark as mentioned in the description.

Lake Stanley Draper Trail

Nice Trail. Rolling Hills!

October, 2023 by jtfabrizio

Great 13.5 mile trail with rolling hills. Had the loop to myself today. It was 40 degrees and raining. Saw 8 deer too and there’s even some hidden gems to catch your attention and get your mind off the grind! Run it counter clockwise for max hills!

Lake Stanley Draper Trail

Nice loop trail for avid cyclists to do laps w/o feeling repetitive. Trail surface very smooth & nice curves & easy grades.

Kameoka Trail

Nice local trail

June, 2023 by kim.sloggett

This trail runs through the northern part of Stillwater. I entered the trail at the SW corner of Boomer Lake Park and rode a combination of the street and the walking/biking trail to the north side of the lake. There is a well marked walk way across Airport Road. Follow the paved trail up for a mostly shaded and peaceful ride. The trail ends in a pretty neighborhood that you can ride easily through and admire the manicured lawns. Go back south around the east side of the lake, find the trail under Lakeview to go south. It will be extended farther south soon!

Oklahoma River Trails

Paved,great views,confusing river crossing, homeless

May, 2023 by christine.wentworth

We rode 20 miles round trip beginning at the Trailhead near the Bass Pro Shop & the Westward expansion bronze statues. We had a map that depicted how we could ride the north & south sides of the river and where to cross however the river crossings were not marked well on either side of the trail and caused us a lot of time and stress trying to find them. We travelled west on the north (city) side of the border with trail and crossed the river at the first bridge ¿ about 8 miles. There was a sizeable homeless encampment about 1 mile before the bridge and when we crossed the street bridge a homeless person’s unleashed dog startled us with barks & growls. There were no obvious signs on

Lake Stanley Draper Trail

Burn loads of calories & build cardio strength!

April, 2023 by christine.wentworth

Lovely trail with challenging, extended uphills. I recommend riding the path clockwise as it appears many regulars have learned. My husband & I rode counter clockwise and saw everyone else going the opposite direction as we walked our bikes up the steepest inclines against the wind. We saw a scissor tail swallow and many other more common birds enjoying the reservoir environment. We started & ended at the marina and had our lunch at the well maintained picnic pavilion.

Lake Stanley Draper Trail

Burn a lot of calories & build cardio on this trail!

April, 2023 by christine.wentworth

Very fun ride but I recommend riding it clockwise; regulars seem to already know this because my husband and I were the only greenhorns riding counter clockwise and walking our bikes uphill against the wind¿ We parked at the marina and ended with a picnic lunch at the lovely park with a picnic pavilion. We saw a scissor tail swallow and many other more common birds enjoying the reservoir.

Bert Cooper Trails

Good for beginners

April, 2023 by meganparks1402

My boyfriend and I like this trail, it’s flat for the most part, clean, and is relatively pretty. It does get crowded in the afternoon but not terrible. This weekend the wind was rough, for the first few miles it was brutal and the wind resistance was almost unbearable. I definitely recommend not coming on a windy day.
