KATY Trail (Tulsa) Description

The KATY Trail runs between the northwest edge of downtown Tulsa and the suburb of Sand Springs. You can continue over the bridge to Prattville just south of the Arkansas River. Mile markers appear every 0.5 mile and begin at the east end in Tulsa. The trail closely follows US 412/US 64 through neighborhoods, parks and shopping districts. Several spurs from these places link to the trail along the way.

Where US 412/US 64 crosses S. 25th W. Avenue, you can take the Newblock Park Trail south. Continuing toward Sand Springs the KATY Trail meets up with the River City Trail in River City Park.

The KATY follows an old corridor of the former Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (a.k.a. the KATY). You'll find restrooms and drinking fountains about every mile, and covered resting areas offer shade during summer.

Parking and Trail Access

In downtown Sand Springs you'll find 9-hour parking near the trail crossing at Main Street and US-64/412 or at River City Park. In Tulsa, park behind the Tulsa County Jail off Denver Ave. by I-244.

KATY Trail (Tulsa) Reviews

I use it everyday to get to and from work. It is very useful and convenient. It helps so that I can skip all the traffic and be on time to work. Love it!!!

We rode east from Sand Springs to Newblock Park area. Trail was well maintained. It crosses several streets, some busy enough that we walked our bikes across. Encountered several apparently homeless and obviously altered (drunk?) folks. I would not ride in this area alone.

I am a petite, beginning rider.

I ran the east end of the trail. long stretches with shade, long stretches with sun. gentle grade changes. saw one water fountain. good training run. some folks up under bridges
