Recommended Posts


Thanks to Rodgers and Hammerstein and the Weather Channel, most folks know Oklahoma as that place in the middle of the U.S. "where the wind comes sweeping down the plains." And the designation is certainly fitting, especially in the spring of the year when it’s time for Oklahomans to hunker down for tornado season. While the plains indeed comprise a large portion of Oklahoma's land mass and contribute significantly to its cultural history, the state is home to more than 10 distinct ecoregions, giving it some of the most diverse terrain in the nation. Hiking opportunities are many and varied because of this, and it's perfectly realistic to hike along a clear mountain stream beneath pines and Caddo maples one day and scramble over worn granite peaks peppered with prickly pear and scrub oak the next. Three of Oklahoma's most popular regions for hiking are the Wichita Mountains in the southwest, the Ouachita Mountains in the southeast, and the Cross Timbers, a region running north and south through the center of the state...
