Mt. Scott - Search Nearby - Added by Blake Batchelor

Mt. Scott is one of the tallest mountains in Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. It has a perfect, paved road to the top and 1000 feet of elevation gain, which makes it the best uphill/downhill cycling destination for the Dallas, OKC region. Take in the spectacular views of the Refuge and Lake Lawtonka as you climb 2.7 miles at a consistent 7.5% grade. Then, enjoy a screaming ride back down to the car where speeds easily reach 50+ mph. Be careful!
