The horseshoe-shaped trail begins and ends on the banks of the North Canadian River, offering a direct connection to the Oklahoma River Trails in the west. Along the way, recreational opportunities abound as it crosses several city parks.

South Grand Trail Reviews

South Grand Avenue Trail

s

This paved trail connects to the River Trail (which then connects to West River Trail and has easy access to Eagle Lake and Katy trails). It's an urban trail through neighborhoods, so there are several street crossings and stop lights. East of downtown you have to ride on the street for about four blocks before the trail picks up again. I've ridden this trail many times at all hours of the day. Because of the street crossings I prefer early mornings on the weekend. I enjoy a little detour through Oliver Park, which offers a nice view of downtown.

Gang Marks

s

Good riding but should ride in numbers and always be aware of surroundings. Gang markings throughout lower socioeconomic areas. Interesting characters walking the streets. At the West end it conveniently joins up with a great trail on the Oklahoma River (just ride down the path adjacent to the Dell computers campus).

Scenic

s

Overall great scenic trail for bike and foot traffic. Little tricky near the tracks where there is no trail. Loved the scenic old town area and sports area on west side and the over hwy pedestrian bridge. Early evenings in residential areas be cautious of children playing near the trail if riding bike. Mostly level and easy travel trail.

Nice option for urban ride

s

This trail definitely passes through an eclectic mixture of environments. For the most part, the trail is well-marked. In a couple of places, however, we had to stop and think about which way to go. In two sections (a few blocks each) the trail required either riding on the sidewalk or on the road (which was not very busy). This trail crosses numerous streets. Most are not busy and are easily crossed, but several of the crossings require stopping at traffic lights. There's quite a bit of road noise in spots. In spite of those drawbacks, it's very nice to have a trail in town and we thoroughly enjoyed our ride.
