The Creek Turnpike, or Rt. 364, is a major toll road spanning east to west through the south end of Tulsa, crossing the river near Jenks. The corridor is also home to the Creek Turnpike Trail, which parallels the highway for nearly 6 miles. Runners can access the trail from parking areas at Sheridan Road, Hunter Park, and Riverside. Though the trail travels along a busy street for most of its trajectory, some sections divert into a quiet park-like atmosphere, and it’s a good flat paved surface for an out and back. The Creek Turnpike Trail also connects directly to the River Parks Trails, The Mingo Trail, and the Liberty Trail for more mileage. MAP.
