Lake Stanley Draper Trail Description

Lake Stanley Draper is a reservoir located in southeast Oklahoma, one of three in the city. In addition to water-based recreation activities like fishing, waterskiing and boating, the lake also boasts a 13-mile hike-and-bike trail looping around it. The two-lane asphalt trail traces the reservoir's undulating shoreline, which makes for a varied and fun ride, though some users may find the ascents challenging. The Lake Draper Marina is a convenient place to start and end your trip.

Parking and Trail Access

You can park at the Lake Stanley Draper Marina (8301 SE 104th St, Oklahoma City, OK). There are at least two accessible spaces in the lot. Additional parking can be found at Observation Park (with accessible parking) in the upper NW corner of the trail loop as well as on E Stanley Draper Drive in the SE corner of the loop.

Lake Stanley Draper Trail Reviews

Burn loads of calories & build cardio strength!

Lovely trail with challenging, extended uphills. I recommend riding the path clockwise as it appears many regulars have learned. My husband & I rode counter clockwise and saw everyone else going the opposite direction as we walked our bikes up the steepest inclines against the wind. We saw a scissor tail swallow and many other more common birds enjoying the reservoir environment. We started & ended at the marina and had our lunch at the well maintained picnic pavilion.

Burn a lot of calories & build cardio on this trail!

Very fun ride but I recommend riding it clockwise; regulars seem to already know this because my husband and I were the only greenhorns riding counter clockwise and walking our bikes uphill against the wind¿ We parked at the marina and ended with a picnic lunch at the lovely park with a picnic pavilion. We saw a scissor tail swallow and many other more common birds enjoying the reservoir.

If a challenge is what you’re looking for, you found it!

My boyfriend and I did this trail this weekend and had no idea how challenging it would be. The hills here are brutal going up but so much fun going down. We’re both beginner cyclists and he made it up all hills until the very last few, I did about half before I had to start walking up lol. It isn’t very pretty here but it was clean, felt safe, and wasn’t crowded.
