Runner Notes

The gravel is well compacted and provides a good running surface.

Description

This trail is the gravel service road around Lake Yahola. The concrete-lined lake provides the fresh water storage for Tulsa.

Beginning at the western parking lot, the road runs west then north paralleling US 75. There is some traffic noise from US-75 in this section, particularly at the northernmost portion. The road then runs east, passing the Oxley North Woods Unit. The road ends at the eastern parking lot.

There is no trail for the ~1/2 mile between the two parking lots but if the ground is dry, there is passage on grass. If the ground is wet, traffic on Mohawk Boulevard is usually light and passage facing traffic is feasible.

Flora & Fauna

Waterfowl, songbirds such as killdeer, and deer.

The trail briefly enters a mowed area next to Lake Yahola. To the right is the dike portion coming from Mohawk Boulevard. To the left the trail goes down off the dike and heads north.
