The Old Frisco Trail begins on the south end of Poteau, the county seat of eastern Oklahoma's Le Flore County, not far from the state's border with Arkansas. Most of the trail has a crushed stone...

Way back nestled in the woods this is a beautiful short trail connecting other longer trails (river parks and Mingo and liberty trail). It’s somewhat hilly and curvy in areas. It’s has one under bridge area that is often a little muddy or wet where u must slow down. Between main streets of Sheridan and Yale there is 180 degree cut back to get under bridge. Otherwise u may find yourself at Hunter Park.
Several challenging hills but scenic. This trail connects riverside trails with Mingo valley.
I rode 5 miles of the trail from Jo Allyn park and it was beautiful. They had recently mowed along the edges of the trail, it had nice signage for the most part and benches for resting at nice intervals. It appears to be a well-kept trail. There were quite a few walkers, joggers and bicyclists out today (even though it was late morning on a Tuesday) and I never felt that it was unsafe. I am a woman and took my 9 year old son. There are some rolling hills but nothing crazy. The majority of our ride was through the woods, so was shaded and pleasant.
My husband and I just got new cruiser bikes and we are investigating the different bike trails. This trail was lovely! We started near Harwelden Mansion and headed south, along a very nice bike trail, clearly marked and differentiated from the walking trails. All kinds of bikers, from small children and parents to more experienced riders were enjoying the trail. We took the trail from about 21st Street south to about 41st. It took us on quite a lovely ride near the Gathering Place and along Riverside Drive. The water and the lovely flowers were great. We highly recommend!overlooking
My husband and I just recently took a leisurely ride on our new bikes on this trail. We started behind a park near 31st and Mingo and went both south and north. Very pleasant path, a little open and exposed to the sun. If you take this trail, bring plenty of water. We were hoping it went south of 41st Street, too, but it did not appear to.
Great trail. Started south from Skiatook. Mile markers at 14, 13 and 12 so was going to check accuracy of my recently changed tire size settings in my bike computer. Took reading at mile 14 and planned again at mile 4. Just after mile marker 12 a sign said entering Tulsa County. Then no more mile markers. So much for plan. Worse still no information markers of any kind in Tulsa Co. made a couple of wrong turns when options presented themselves. Then approaching downtown Tulsa trail enters a large parking lot with no information on where to pick it up. Just drove city streets for rest of ride.
Nice trail that connects to Oklahoma River Trail
We have been using the Frisco Trail for years now. I run there often because it’s easier on my joints than pavement (and no cars)!!! When I bring my kids, they ride their bikes while I jog. It’s flat, smooth and easy to ride or run. With the addition of lights, better bridges, and water...it will definitely be even more visited by us.
Also, we are very excited about the bike trails that weave through the trees! Great for me to ride or let the kids ride while I run the trail right beside them!!!!
The Old Frisco Trail has been my go to training location for many marathons. I have completed 2 Boston Marathons and will also be going again this year. I love how the dirt rode has less impact on my feet, legs, and body than a true rode run. It is just like running down a flat dirt road for 6.5 miles turn around and come back. It is super easy to set out aid stations on but now we also have two water fountains for you to hydrate back up with again. I also love to take my kids out to this trail. I let them bike and I run. I feel so safe on this trail because you do not feel like you are about to get hit by a car. This is such a great place to run or bike. Go outside. Run on Dirt.
This trail is a great connector to Northside of City. Ive ridden it many times with OBS & friends. There are still retired trains on tracks alongside the trail. It goes by two gold courses & its relatively flat except at the end there are some hills .
We rode this yesterday for the first time. Before doing so, we read the variety of reviews and had a fairly accurate expectation.
The southern end, containing several road crossings, still has several areas with broken glass, graffiti, junk yards, an aggressive dog and gives one a general feeling of uneasiness.
The northern end is much more pleasant. Longer stretches between road crossings, more rural, cleaner and allows one to enjoy the ride, the views and the experience. The park at the Skiatook Trail head is beyond impressive!
Our suggestion: start at Skiatook and head south into Tulsa and head back into Skiatook. The trail does extend north beyond the Skiatook Trail head for 1 1/2 miles. So the entire length is 16 miles, one way.
I'd also add that this trail, while essential and much appreciated, does parallel I-44, a busy interstate highway, for much of its length. So the experience is very loud and not the greatest in terms of air quality.
