Osage Prairie Trail is a rails to trails project. In 2006 the trail was
extended from downtown Tulsa, near the OSU campus, to the city limits at
56th Street North, continuing through Sperry and ending at Highway 20 in
Skiatook. A future expansion will extend the trail to Birch Lake in
Osage County. It is a 10' wide paved trail, including 8 pedestrian
bridges, one of which was a renovated historical highway bridge. Parking
is available at the OSU campus, Sperry and Skiatook.
of particular interest to birders stretches from Sperry to 76 Street
North. The trails passes through a variety of woodland and grassland
habitats. About half way between 86 St. N. and Main street in Sperry (98
St. N.) is a wetlands area where American Bittern have been found.
