DETAILS:           This weekend, burn off those Thanksgiving calories as you explore the OKC Zoo and enjoy a little exercise, too. Spanning more than 100 acres, the Zoo’s grounds provide ideal walking trails that cover a variety of distances for all types of walkers from serious trotters to leisurely strollers. Each pathway promises a new adventure as you discover the beauty of the Zoo’s wildlife and wild spaces around you.

Ready to make tracks? Head out on the Zoo’s Turkey Trot Trail to start your step safari. Encompassing the entire Zoo, this 2.5-mile trail allows guests the opportunity to see all their favorite animals and discover world-class habitats including Cat Forest, Oklahoma Trails and the Zoo’s newest expansion, Sanctuary Asia. While looping through Sanctuary Asia, be sure and say hi to Kai, the Zoo’s Asian elephant calf born on October 9, 2018!

Maps highlighting the Turkey Trot Tail will be available at Guest Services in the Zoo’s entry plaza throughout the three-day weekend.
