By Carl R. Evans on April 5, 2004
Even if all you do is stay on the highway or enjoy an occasional picnic in one of the many picnic areas, this is a wonderful book that shares the rich history of the area. But, if you want to discover the true wealth of the Wichitas then this book is a "must have"! Mr. Ellenbrook's thoughtful presentation of the history of the area makes for interesting reading but for the more adventurous it ignites an excitement to put on the hiking boots, get out the daypack, and hit the trails to see history for yourself. His book is so full of hikes and adventures it could easily take a year or more of weekends to see it all. Some, like the "rock rooms" may take a four, five, or even more trips to locate them. But finding them is half the fun.

This old standard has some great history of the area. But if you try to find the Rock Rooms or many other hikes from this book you will get very lost. Many descriptions are dated and were not very helpful to start with. For one hike you're told to find a rock shaped like a seal on top of a mountain covered with hundreds of strange shaped rocks. Is it the whole seal or just a head? Big or little? Not much help I'm afraid. Get it for the history but get another book to hike with.

Info is very dated and hard to follow. I've tried using this book several times and almost always find it very difficult to find the trail head. There are no maps, and the ones that are included are hand drawn and crude. I gave it 2 stars, as it does have some interesting information about the area.

Verified Purchase
I bought my first copy of the 'Outdoor and Trail Guide to the Wichita Mountains of Southwest Oklahoma' 23 years ago and I have bought many more copies over the years as gifts for friends. In my opinion, this is one of the most valuable books somebody who is new to the region can have. It gives great historical information of the area along with lots of hiking and sight-seeing ideas. Great little book with lots of information about the Wichita Mountains area!

I don't understand why the price on this book is so high through the sellers on this site! Go to [...] which is the author's web site and purchase it for $15.95.
