Wichita Mountains Scenic Byway

The Wichita Mountains Scenic Highway is just off I-44, near Lawton. Route
49 passes near Lake Lawtonka and through Oklahoma's rolling prairie.
Starting from the east, this scenic drive takes travelers passed the
historic small town of Medicine Park. Just outside of town are the area's
ranches, with sights of southwestern grassland, cottonwood, Texas longhorn
and buffalo. Ahead are 59,000 plus acres of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife
Refuge, strewn with 250 million year old granite and gabbro boulders.
