Bert Cooper Trails Description

As you circle Lake Hefner on the Bert Cooper Trails, you will enjoy wide open views of the lake, bustling with sailboats during the summer. A highlight of the trail system, formerly known as the Lake Hefner Trails, is the tall white lighthouse on the lake's eastern shore, an unusual site in the landlocked state.

Traveling the circumference of the lake is a nearly 10-mile journey. Those who wish for a shorter ride or hike may prefer the southern end, which runs through a forested area and offers recreational opportunities at Lakeshore Park and Stars and Stripes Park. The latter has a playground with a large rocket-shaped structure that children will love to climb. Along this shore, you'll also find the lake's largest marina and several fishing piers.

Make a direct connection to the Hefner-Overholser Trail at W. Britton Road to reach Lake Overholser and the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Bert Cooper Trails is available at several points along the southern half of the lake: in Lakeshore Park (off W. Lakeshore Drive), off N. Meridian Avenue, and in Stars and Stripes Park (off S. Lake Hefner Drive). Three large parking lots can also be found off Lake Hefner Parkway on the lake's eastern shore.

Bert Cooper Trails Reviews

Nice flat ride, however the wind is volatile and can and will pick up significantly during your ride. But its a good ride that allows one to work on their form and get a good consistent ride in without much interaction with automobiles.
