Wichita Mountains - Mt. Scott Mount Scott is one of Oklahoma's most prominent mountains, rising 2,464 feet above sea level. Located on the eastern edge of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, it is a legendary site which boasts tales of ancient spirits, Spanish gold and buried outlaw loot.

An old legend told by the Indians is that the Great Spirit appeared on Mount Scott after a devastating flood. Other legends include those of gold mined here by the Spanish in the 17th century and of buried loot hidden by bandits of the old west.

To reach Mount Scott, take Highway 49 into the Wildlife Refuge and continue to the base of the mountain. A 3 -mile, paved road leads to the summit and the best view of Southwest Oklahoma. Be sure and bring a camera - the summit provides a perfect setting for informal photos of your family and friends!
