Overall, this trail is a great improvement for the city, like totally awesome, but definitely could use clean up and maintenance for pedestrians to feel safer. I'm a Muskogee native who moved away as a teenager and now I come back to visit from time to time. I have fond memories growing up close to this trail, in the Meadow Brook housing addition off of Border Ave very close to where this trail runs. If I remember correctly, a part of the trail is an old railway line where my brother and I use play and walk along as kids. I also explored the field (where Hatbox is and where the trail U's around off of Border ave) area a lot as a child. Walking along the trail in the sunshine a couple of days ago was an amazing experience for me that brought up old memories and I kept thinking it would have been perfect for us growing up, much better than the seedy railway it once was. It's very quiet and surrounded by trees, brush, and some housing additions. The sound of frogs and birds was beautiful. I walked the entire 3.5 miles from the Music Museum to Hatbox field and enjoyed the peace and quiet very much, as well as seeing Muskogee again through fresh eyes. I saw about seven cyclists and one other pedestrian during my two hour walk. I'm an experienced walker and have walked on a lot of trails and through a lot of cities since I've lived in Muskogee. However, I agree with some of the other comments above. It's seedy in some areas and I picked a heavy walking stick once I got close to the bridge because I was mostly worried about stray dogs or stray predators since I'm a woman. There were a lot of backyards I passed by with huge mean looking pitbulls, rotweilers, and other dogs that didn't have sturdy fencing. That said,luckily, I didn't run into any problems along the way and would definitely walk the trail again (with a stick stick in hand!). Also, the site of men in the fields from time to time startled me, but they seemed preoccupied working. There's a lot of old trees, trash, and shrubs that could be cleared of course, also maybe a water fountain or a small convenient store could be installed on such a long path because I was dying of thirst along the way. It should also be said that Muskogee is known for being backwoods and old fashioned not for being modern and with the times though I hope that it catches up with us soon! The city itself seems to need a lot of restructuring, jobs, diversity, and money to connect with tourism and it's citizens more. Not sure about installing a fence, but more pleasantries would be a bonus for walkers and also an extension back to main street would have been extremely practical, since my car was parked there! I'd love to see some more progress here to better the experience for visitors like me and tourists coming through regularly or for the first time. But also improvement should be done mostly for the Okees who are there everyday with their families and friends!
