Crazy amounts of ticks. My husband and I had 7 on us and found 2 in our car after so be careful. Trails were pretty flat and very in and out, but had some fun obstacles.

Farm road or never taken care of path. Had to chase away a turkey which was awesome.

But all and all wasn’t that good

Great for biking/walking

Pretty awesome trails, a little hard to follow on which one your on, they need updated trail maps onsite

Best trail in central Oklahoma it makes you feel like your by the the sea side with a harbor filled with friendly people and good restaurants what they need to do is put hotels by the lake.

Will probably not go back again. Lots of litter...
I did not feel safe going this alone...

The trail is not very visible at all and towards the end I mostly just walked the service round on the edge of the forest.

Running at the lake can be one of the best or worse places depending on the wind. If it’s remotely windy you will feel it all at the lake. I’ve ran around this lake 3-4 times a week for the last decade and it’s a nice place to exercise, sail, or go to a restaurant. I wish it had better restroom facilities, but if you really need better than a porta potty you can go to Louie’s or Lake Hefner Golf club. Lake Hefner connects to Overholser over by MacArthur and Britton and Nichols Hills on Grand on the east side of the lake.

I love walking around the wall that surrounds most of the lake. I feel safe being out in the open and there are trash cans to discard poop bags.

This is a well designed trail that is lots of fun and challenging! Some new areas are under renovation now but it looks like it will be awesome.!

Trails aren't well marked. Fun for a morning hike but may mot come back out. More geared to bikes but was a good hike.

We took small children with us, and were able to have a small umbrella stroller for the youngest. The non-paved trail intersects often making it convenient for us to take the older one for more adventure. Very easy trail.

poorly maintained. very hard to tell which trail goes where.

easy lots of greens

Couple stars earned for the distance and occasional peaceful spots of scenery, but overall pretty underwhelming and boring. The first mile and change of the trail also has exposure to local road and aircraft noise.

Very disappointing!

No, I was not expecting Mt. Everest, I understood the "easy" rating. Essentially. the entire hike is on a farm road with tire tracks/Rita throughout. There are short spurs leading you down to the river. There was shade pretty much throughout. I saw a few animals during the hike (rabbit, box turtle). It was quiet and peaceful to a degree but largely lacking in sights and grandeur. I took my dog with me. A little guy or girl would do alright, although, again, very little changes.

I won't make a second trip...

It was ok... There was an area where we were next to a busy road and the noise was super loud.

Definitely a beautiful park. Lot's of shade and rest along the way. I added the additional (apparently new, not as shady) path along the southeast side (not actually a part of the park) to add distance.

Beautiful, easy hike for young children and the access to the water is nice for extra exploring and fishing.

Went there today. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Took lots of pictures. Will be back.

great for biking in the mornings and evenings.

Absolutely my favorite place. Peaceful by the river watching the kayakers float down. Lots of bunnies and armadillos. But bring bug spray. Duh... I shouldn't have to tell you that.

Nice patch of nature in the city! Extremely easy. Very heavy with mosquitos and ticks. Watch out for dog doodoo.

Nice and peaceful trail. Not marked well in some spots. Bring your tick spray!

Awesome trail! Be warned of the wind, if it is windy. It can make your mileage feel twofold.
