Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail

With the weather getting colder I don’t see myself hiking any mountain peaks in the near future. Instead I think my wife and I may do some local trails. Being in Oklahoma one might think there is a lack of good hiking. I believe the opposite is true. Oklahoma is known to have many beautiful outdoors areas. Oklahoma has Turner Falls, Broken Bow, Roman Nose, and Robber’s Cave State Park. There are several other great areas but today we are writing on an area for our urban readers. Just because you live in a city, this case Tulsa, doesn’t mean you can’t get out and enjoy the outdoors. Today we write about Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail.

Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail is located just ten minutes from Downtown Tulsa. Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail is described as urban wilderness. I was a little skeptical when I began reading articles on this being “wilderness”. From what I have seen this place actually looks quite beautiful. It is tucked away in Tulsa but is full of trees and a great looking hiking path. This particular loop comes in at 3.8 miles. A huge plus for my family is that this trail allows dogs. Our little Ozzie loves getting outdoors and this looks like a relatively easy trail to enjoy on a weekend stroll.

Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail is described by many websites as a moderate trail. These sites also claim that there is a moderate elevation gain. While you do gain 495 feet of elevation I wouldn’t consider this to be a moderate trail. Maybe that is moderate in Oklahoma but after some real outdoors hikes 495 feet doesn’t seem bad at all. Turkey Mountain Yellow Trail may not have mountains in the distance or even a ton of wildlife to see, but this is a great option for those who want to get outdoors. Feel free to share some of your favorite urban wilderness areas with us readers!
