Claremore Lake phase two trail opens

CLAREMORE — Claremore Parks and Recreation Department is completing phase two of the multi-use trail project located at Claremore Lake. The final section is projected to be finished before Sept 1.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation inspected the trails last week. Construction on 270 feet of the trail will be necessary to complete the projec, t according to Joe Kays, park director.

“It is a nice trail featuring scenic views of the wooded areas surrounding the lake,” said Kays.

The 1.25-mile multi-use trail runs between Claremore Lake and the Claremore Community Center and connects to the existing 1.25-mile lake trail.

The Claremore Lake multi-use trails are commonly used for walking, running and cycling.

“The trail has been well received by the public and has already been used regularly,” said Kays.

Kays would like to remind citizens using the city soccer fields near the Community Center that no sitting or standing on the trails is allowed and to observe posted signs.

Jerry and Faith Patton, Oologah residents, are excited about the new trails and enjoy walking their dog Sissy in the mornings.

“We are real impressed with the trails,” said Jerry.

“Now we can walk as many miles as we like,” added Faith.

The phase two trail is part of the City’s Parks Master Plan. For information about the plan visit
