The Legacy Trail runs 1.5 miles through the heart of Norman, Oklahoma. The walking and biking path parallels an active BNSF railroad, making it what is known as a rail-with-trail. The northern half of the trail sits on the west side of the railway tracks and passes close to residential areas, a public library and Andrews Park. At Acres Road, the trail switches over to the other side at a designated trail crossing site. It parallels Jones Avenue south along the more commercial part of the city, and into Legacy Park. The park has lots to tempt you to pause on your journey including a number of informational plaques detailing different aspects of Norman's history ranging from its founding, to the Great Depression the World Wars. There is a bronze statue honoring one of Norman's favorite sons, the actor James Garner, kitted in cowboy attire. There is also the historic red brick railroad depot that was constructed in 1887 by the Santa Fe railroad and has been restored to act as a community events space. The Legacy Trail helps honor Norman's past and present.
Parking is available on Jones Avenue.
