I figured that I'd post this over here as well seeing that I recall bearpaw spending some time out there.

Hey, I was looking for just some quick info for the Wichita's in SW Oklahoma.

I'm leading a group of students in about 2 weeks, and I'm looking at doing an overnighter with them and thought that the wichitas would be a nice place this time of the year.

What I'm looking for is some information on the back country hiking, maybe something around the elk mountain area. If anyone can give me some tips or pointers, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Contact the Preserve HQ (http://www.fws.gov/southwest/refuges/oklahoma/wichitamountains/)for info including ways to buy a topo map of the area. They'll also give info on the permit system. Try to get things done in advance if they will let you. Used to be you had to get there for a permit in person and the office is only open on weekdays. They also cap the number of folks who can overnight in the preserve, so try to go midweek.
