Here’s a Great Plains site that I have never been to, but looking at some of the photos of the Gloss Mountains makes me want to check it out for sure. I love learning about new places on the Great Plains and the list is growing!
Oklahoma operates Gloss Mountain State Park which preserves 640 acres of the site. There are no overnight facilities at the park, but there are numerous hiking trails that can get you into the “backcountry.”
Gloss Mountain State Park is in Major County about 45 miles west of Enid, Oklahoma. This is probably too far east for the Great Plains Trail to connect to, but it’s just one more example of the diversity and grandeur of the whole region.
