The Veterans Trail is an easy one-way trail that leads from Pavilion Springs to the perimeter road and to the Oklahoma Veterans Center. This trail through a cedar and hardwood forest was once the site for a golf course built in 1924. Since the closure of the golf course in 1934, natural plant succession has steadily reclaimed the land. This is a good alternative route from the Travertine Creek trail or the perimeter road.
