Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness 2020

Tulsa, OK

Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness is located just south of downtown Tulsa, OK.  It encompasses 300 acres of designated ‘urban wilderness,’ providing a slew of nearby recreational opportunities to the residents of Tulsa.  Its dense canopy of hardwoods insulate a feeling of wildness even within the city limits.  Visitors are able to explore miles of trails by foot, bike, and even horseback.  Nearby residents utilize the trail system for walking, running, and dog-walking, among other activities.  The relatively new park has become increasingly popular and, with its very compact nature, has begun to experience considerable impacts from high use.  These impacts include trail widening and erosion, pet waste and other pet-related impacts, and impacts to vegetation.

*Turkey Mountain is located on the ancestral lands of the Osage, Muscogee (Oklahoma), Caddo, Očeti Šakówiŋ (Sioux), and possibly other tribes*
