Stillwater, Oklahoma is home to this multifaceted hike-and-bike trail, which is named after its Japanese sister city. The trail is an invitation to residents to get outside and enjoy the natural and recreational amenities the city has to offer. At present, the Kameoka Trail exists in several disconnected segments, and it is one day hoped they will be connected for a continuous car-free journey through the city.
The northernmost segment of the trail runs from the Park View residential development to Airport Road. The trail is wide and concrete, with two-lanes of travel. This section connects residents to Boomer Lake Park, the jewel in the crown of Stillwater's park system. The trail forms a 3-mile loop around the artificial lake, which is over 200 acres in surface area and hosts a variety of activities including kayaking, paddleboarding, as well as boat and dock-fishing. It's also home to a vareity of bird species, and birders can spot herons, pelicans, orioles, thrashers, not to mention the ubiquitous Canada Geese. There are picnic tables, benches, pavilions and grills for folks wanting to relax in view of the lake. The park also features a playground and splashpad for the little ones.
To make the loop from the east side of the lake, take the branch of the trail passing by the David Payne memorial. That will take you up to Lakeview Road and across to the lake's west side. To continue south, take the branch of the trail that is closer to the trail shore; that ducks under Lakeview Road, past the power station, and along Boomer Creek to Stillwater High School. That segment ends at Redbud Drive.
Another portion of the Kameoka Trail can be found south of that, between McElroy Drive and Hall of Fame Avenue. As before, the trail follows the wooded edge of Boomer Creek, emerging on the north side of Hall of Fame Avenue. To cross to the south side, turn left and cross the train tracks to the bridge, where the trail curves under the street to the other side.
The final segment runs through Hoyt Grove Park. Again, Boomer Creek is that common thread, as the trail mimics its shaded route. Hoyt Grove Park has parking and a disc golf course.
Park at Boomer Lake Park for the northern part of the trail. See map for parking options around the lake.
For the Hoyt Grove Park segment, parking is available along 12th Avenue.
