TRAILS

Trail
Muskogee is a city dedicated to the establishment of trails for the use of its citizens and visitors. There are currently over 8 miles of trails in the city.






Centennial Trail
Located in the southwest part of the city, Centennial Trail has two sections. The Love-Hatbox Sports Complex loop is a 5-k / 3.1 mile asphalt athletic trail that loops around the complex perimeter allowing you to experience a variety of microhabitats from forest and prairie to wetland and rock-outcrops. Several organized runs are held here each year. Phase Two, or Centennial Trail South, connects Love-Hatbox Sports Complex to downtown Muskogee at The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and Three Rivers Museum. This 2 mile section traverses over both prairie and hardwood forest. Both sections are wonderful places to watch wildlife.

Stem Beach Trail
Located at Honor Heights Park this 1.2 mile concrete trail encircles the park’s largest lake with its waterfront gazebo and fully accessible fishing docks. From the lake you can meander northward for a stop at the Gleckler Pavillion, then continue through the Arboreta and experience almost 500 different tree species, and finally arrive at the Conard Rose Garden. A beautiful trail to experience in any season.

Civitan Trail
This trail, located at Civitan Park, is popular with people of all ages because of the beautiful views afforded from the hillside layout and the partially shaded layout of the trail. Civitan Trail is a .8-mile concrete athletic trail.

Henry Bresser Nature Trail
Located at Honor Heights Park the Bresser Trail is named after former Parks & Recreation Director Henry Bresser. It is a wooded ¼ mile nature trail with well-defined paths, sitting areas and picnic tables built by the WPA during the 1930’s.

Audubon Trail
Located at Honor Heights Park this ½ mile nature trail dedicated to birding is popular with birdwatchers from all over northeastern Oklahoma. The trailhead for the Audubon Trail is below the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center on Buffalo Drive.

Spaulding Trail
Located at Spaulding Park this 1/3 mile asphalt general activity trail is popular year round. The trail was recently renovated, along with the rest of Spaulding Park, in a $600,000 revitalization project.

Trails Master Plan
From the very beginning, the overriding goal of this master planning endeavor has been to facilitate the actual construction of as many trais in Muskogee as possible; to ensure those trails are safe and located where they are needed and will be used; and to connect the major desitnations within the city. This was a tall order from the start, and could not have been accomplished without the support, cooperation, hard work, and enthusiasm for the ctywide trails concept that we received throughout the development of the Muskogee Trails Master Plan.
