Sick of being stuck inside playing Oregon Trail because of all the diseases, bad hunting, and grueling pace? Fear not, intrepid urban navigator. You can easily fashion yourself the Lewis and Clark of our real-life lakes, creeks, rivers and concrete on the Oklahoma City trails system. It all began in 2002 with the completion of the Lake Hefner trail loop. Today, the system sports more than 66 miles of titillating trails throughout the city (with dozens more magnificent miles coming soon as a result of the trails component of the MAPS 3 projects). So press return to size up the cycling, running, walking, in-line skating and strolling situation. It’s all here, friend, and without the dangers of running into any those nasty wild buffalo stampedes or typhoid fever outbreaks along the way. Get on out there, you modern-day metropolitan pathfinder you, and pedal, step, or roll your way into the history books. And then perhaps indulge yourself in some chocolate-incorporated trail mix for good measure. Go ahead, fair explorer.
