Mountain Bike the Mt. Scott Fire Road

Mt. Scott Fire Road - Search Nearby - Added by Blake Batchelor

The Mount Scott Fire Road is the only designated mountain biking trail within the refuge. Enjoy seldom seen views of the back side of Mt. Scott, Mt. Wall, and Hunting Horse Hill. Catch speed on some of the big ups and downs. This is a beginner out-and-back trail (no single-track), so have fun, relax and see if you can make it all the way!

The Mt. Scott Fire Road parking is within the first few hundred yards on your right after entering the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. It is the pullout after you pass the Osage Lake parking lot. Keep an eye out for the dirt road/trail that runs NE from this road pullout. It's pretty easy to spot. You will follow this wide, double-track fire road for your ride. Please look on google maps or another source to see the trail you will follow. The trail ends at another road near the Meers restaurant and parallel forest. The road was built as a fire road, to be used in case of a fire emergency. It is wide and consists of gravel and dirt. There are some steep hills to negotiate on the ride. Walking up a hill is absolutely OK! This is a beginner route. There is more serious mountain biking on the other side of the refuge fence at the Lawtonka trails.
