Foss Lake Tour

This 36-mile road route loops through the small towns of Rammon and Butler and through the northern part of the Washita Wildlife Refuge. The rolling landscape is a typical mix of Oklahoma ranching and agriculture. Though few of these rural roads have shoulders, one will find minimal traffic on them. This route would be a pleasant escape for the day tourist who may wish to take a picnic lunch enjoy the fresh air. Foss State Park and the adjoining Washita Wildlife Refuge have much to offer the mountain bike rider and the bird watcher. A fairly rough three mile off-road trail follows the southern shoreline of the lake within the park, while in the refuge, there is a network of primitive and oil field roads which can be used by non-motorized vehicles. The refuge closes at 4:30 p.m. each day.
