The Riverparks west trail extends from Southwest Boulevard (also known as the 11th street bridge) to 71st Street.  The trail is primarily flat, with some small rises at 21st street as the trail goes under the 21st Street Bridge and then at the Turkey Mountain Wilderness area.   

 

Along the trail is the River West Festival Park, a place where several annual events take place including Oktoberfest and the Tulsa Celebrates Freedom event on July 4. 

 

The scenery along the route is varied ranging from great views of downtown Tulsa to wide open areas near the PSO Soccer Complex.  The trail connects with the East Bank Trail at the Pedestrian Bridge at 29th Street as well as the 21st Street Bridge.   

 

There is a 9-hole disc golf course near the beginning of the trail at the Southwest Blvd bridge.  In addition, there are picnic tables and grills available.

 

Near the PSO Soccer Complex, there is an area designated for kayaking.  This area, known as the Tulsa Wave, is nationally known for its eddys and currents that make kayaking challenging.  There is an access point just north of the Soccer Complex parking area. 

 

There is a fishing area near the Pedestrian Bridge that features fishing pole stands. 

 

The trail extends to the Turkey Mountain Wilderness Area and then onto the 71st Street Bridge, which then connects into the River Park East trail.  The Turkey Mountain Wilderness Area has several miles of unpaved hiking or off-road biking trails.
