Note: A portion of the Riverparks East Bank Trail between 27th Street and 35th Street is closed, while the stretch south of 81st Street is open but impacted by construction activities related to trailside redevelopment. Refer to the River Parks Authority's official website for more information and the latest updates on the projects.
The Riverparks East Bank Trail runs north–south along the east bank of the Arkansas River through Tulsa. The popular pathway runs 10.5 miles between 101st Street at Riverside Parkway and Southwest Boulevard (US 66). Along the way you'll find picnic areas with outdoor grills, as well as parks, drinking fountains, restrooms and dining. The trail provides a shady journey along a scenic river. Make the trip even longer by crossing the 11th Street bridge at the north end of the trail and picking up the Riverparks West Bank Trail.
At its southern end, the Riverparks East Bank Trail meets up with the Creek Turnpike Trail just south of 96th Street.

Love the atmosphere, people, parks, and it’s also a pretty scenery all throughout! Love seeing active people enjoy along with their kids tagging along.
I parked near the sand volleyball area just south of 71st st. Rode north along the river to Southwest Blvd then crossed the river. Rode south for about a mile and the Riverparks west trail was closed about a mile south of the river crossing I then backtracked to the start instead of doing a planned loop. Total of 15 miles.
The trail is beautiful. Well maintained surface in a beautiful greenspace, multiuse parkway. Trail was not overly busy as Tulsa Tough was happening at the same time. I assume many of the more serious riders were in this event.
This is one of the most beautiful trails I have ridden, even though it was very hot and muggy at mid-day. There were restrooms and water along the way if needed.
Have been riding this trail for years and thoroughly enjoy it every time. My wife and I were in Tulsa in late June so it was hot but with proper hydration, an easy ride with lots of shaded areas to help maintain comfort. Highly recommended for beginners and experienced riders alike. With all the connections to multiple trails, more than enough to satisfy one's desire for longer rides if you have the time to play. Stop by the Gathering Place as it is a wonderful area for kids. Will be back!!
Road this trail September 2018.Still very hot in Oklahoma but the river by your side made it feel a bit cooler.Wonderfully smooth surface and very well marked for bikers and walkers/runners.Various bronze statues and parks along the way add to the enjoyment.Very few cross roads but good to stay within the suggested speed.A well equipped bikeshop is on the south end.The Gathering Place had just opened and the trail goes right by.The park is not for bikes but walk it through and marvel at what the city has provided its residents and visitors.Mostly for younger children and a day there will provide them endless enjoyment.Several places to transition to the west bank to add a few extra miles and scenery.Great job Tulsa!
Nice Easy trail, can be busy and you may often find walkers wondering around on the bike portion of the trail (even though there is a clearly marked bike and pedestrian side, I recommend this trail for beginners or if you want a nice flat or fairly flat ride.
Only a very short part of this trail was open. It seems both directions are under construction. Could only go less than 2 miles. Tried to hook onto the trailer on the other side of the bank, but couldn't find it. Ended up riding around the neighborhood that got kind of sketchy the farther I went. May try it again after I know it's open.
This was the most beautiful trail I have been on. The trail was seperated for walkers and bikers. The setting is beautiful along the Arkansas river. There is a bridge that goes across the river which makes for a picturesque ride. There were a lot of people out and really made for a enjoyable day ride. I took my whole family on the trail and they all enjoyed it.
Made use of a beautiful late December day in Tulsa by riding the 20+ miles of this wonderfully well designed trail. Tremendous views of the river and while the trail is busy it's so well designed that it's a joy to ride on. Well worth a trip to Tulsa to enjoy this trail. We are looking forward to a return trip and riding some of the connecting trails.
This is my first review of any trail but I wanted to say what a fantastic place to ride. They have divided the trail into walking and biking which make it so pleasant to ride.GREAT job city of Tulsa.
