Wildlife: The Great Plains Trail of Oklahoma
|Red Carpet Country|
“People don’t realize all the treasures we have in western Oklahoma. The trail is a gateway to exploring them.” Kenny Knowles, chairman of the Oklahoma Wildlife and Prairie Heritage Alliance, said.
The Great Plains Trail of Oklahoma consists of 13 highway-based, driving loops that span the entire western portion of the state, with dozens of stops in Red Carpet Country. Each loop guides travelers through areas with the best opportunities to view wildlife and includes designated stopping points on both public and private areas.
Watch for the road signs like the one on the right. Printed maps are available at tourist welcome centers throughout Red Carpet Country. Or call 1-800-652-6552 for a printed map.
Rivers: Western Oklahoma River Road Run
Western Oklahoma River Road Run is held annually the 2nd Saturday of May through Blaine, Custer and Dewey Counties, along 240 miles of two-lane highways and all-weather county roads. The route is open all year, with driving directions posted on the WORRR website. This is a motorcycle poker run with 3 meals, good fellowship and great uncharted scenery that most didn’t know existed in Western Oklahoma.
