The Osage Trail / Osage Prairie Trail is a 16.8-mile long paved trail in the north of the city. The trail extends from a point just north of Interstate 244 to a point north of  the community of Skiatook. The trail was built along the abandoned railroad bed of the Midland Valley Railroad and has gentle grades, few turns and relatively few street crossings. The route takes you through the residential neighborhoods in the northern portion of the city and across natural areas with winding creeks and forested areas. You will also pass by small farms and through the communities of Sperry and Skiatook.

The trail starts in Tulsa near the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Heading north, the trail goes past numerous schools and parks within the northern portion of the Tulsa metro area. North of Tulsa, the Osage Prairie Trail goes past open farmland, and through pretty natural areas with winding creeks, lots of trees and local wildlife. As the trail goes through the small community of Sperry you will pass right by the charming downtown area.

Within the community of Skiatook, there is a nice park along the trail with walking paths, parking, a pond, a playground, restrooms and drinking fountain. Skiatook is located just east of the Osage Reservation on Highway 20.
