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...

The Osage Prairie Trail follows the corridor of the old Midland Valley Rail. The trail links Oklahoma State University in Tulsa with the town of Skiatook to the north. The trail is lighted in places...
I read the reviews and they all had merit; there is horse poop on the trail, a bridge is out with no warning or signs of being repaired and there are multiple streets to cross and some of them are fairly heavily trafficked—on the plus side, it’s also very lovely, shaded for long stretches and not busy. Slight grades, easy to run/walk/bike. I ran 10 and I saw only one bike and two walkers. Overall very pleasant—no lighting along trail so not a good spot to go before or after the sun comes or goes.
Just a small connection from Riverpark to Katy, easy and short, I’ve not seen anyone in passing when I run here.
Nice trail, well maintained, not very busy, mostly flat with some slight grades, long stretches are shaded and then some are full sun. There is a fairly sizable homeless/addicts/drunk population that live in the bushes and by the trains. No one bothered me as I ran but I definitely would bring my mace next time I run this, and never in the evening or too early in the morning.
Overnight in OKC with our cruisers. Smooth, paved trail with little change in elevation. Windy in April, and on the north side of the river lots of highway noise. So, nice path along the River, but otherwise not very interesting. Path not busy but cyclists who passed us gave no warning.
This could be a very nice trail IF the city would maintain it as well as they do River Parks. It is fully paved or asphalt, but some of the asphalt is in bad shape. The main downfall is the homeless camps and all the trash they bring along with them. Under almost every bridge there is trash and broken glass. By each park, Boeing and Hicks, there will be trash and broken glass. I ride this trail 90+ days a year and am always saddened by its condition.
Rode the Osage starting from OSU and went to Skiatook. The bridge across Flat Rock Creek is still closed, so there are concrete blocks on the trail at E 36th St N and E 46th St N, but no signs indicating a detour. We (on a tandem) opted to go west to N Hartford Ave which is wide and not busy at the time we rode it. Going to the east, is N. Peoria Ave (Rt-11). Google Street View shows it has a sidewalk that might be rideable.
All other comments regarding glass and loose dogs are accurate. In addition, we found numerous piles of "horse poop" on the trail as well. The trail south of Sperry could use some TLC in the way of community clean up events.
Versatile, can be a short 4 mile run or make it a half marathon run (or more) as it connects to the River Park trails. Wooded at parts and sometimes a little loud bc proximity to the highway but pleasant and pretty. Some hills sprinkled in but otherwise flat; beware of narrow paths and bikers going too fast and the occasional close call of being clotheslined by dog leashes lol.
Trail conditiin good- straightandflat. Easy ride but not very scenic and the traffic noise from the adjacent highway made it less enjoyable
We experienced a small portion of the Bricktown Canal Trail on a quiet, pedestrian-free morning in early October. I stress "pedestrian free" since we did not see or pass a single pedestrian on this designated Pedestrian Only pathway. (It's my understanding that the Canal Trail is the downtown hotspot at night when the restaurants and bars are packed.)
FULL DISCLOSURE: Even though the trail is designated for pedestrians only, we utilized a very small pedestrian-free segment of the Canal Trail on our bikes.
I suppose the trail is perfect for tourists wandering around Bricktown seeing the sights and wanting to get in some steps, and for the evening revelers as well, but it's way too short for anyone thinking about biking it UNLESS you combine it with other routes and downtown sites which is precisely what we did.
We took advantage of Ryan's expertise and his rideOKC.com to pedal around on his Art and Architecture Tour. This was truly the way for us to enhance our knowledge about the history of the city and state, and its people, culture, monuments, and art. His routes through the city were safe, and it was definitely the way for a couple of sixty-somethings from SoCal to familiarize themselves with the various downtown sections of OKC and its Bricktown Canal Trail!
Have been riding this trail for years and thoroughly enjoy it every time. My wife and I were in Tulsa in late June so it was hot but with proper hydration, an easy ride with lots of shaded areas to help maintain comfort. Highly recommended for beginners and experienced riders alike. With all the connections to multiple trails, more than enough to satisfy one's desire for longer rides if you have the time to play. Stop by the Gathering Place as it is a wonderful area for kids. Will be back!!
The pros: felt safe, not crowded, convenient location, relatively wide and flat, good graffiti
The cons: very hot and sunny, not scenic, industrial with construction and service truck parking lots, lots of stinky smells including the North Canadian River, can hear the roar of the highway
Nice pavement, a bench every once in a while, and beautiful green views. Really enjoy jogging this path. Not many people which is great and adds to the solitude.
