Gloss Mountain State Park
Fairview, OK 73737
An hour west of Enid in the rural town of Fairview rests a true Oklahoma treasure: Gloss Mountain State Park.
The Gloss Mountains, sometimes called the Glass Mountains, have a high Selenite content that mimics a shiny glass exterior. Though there are no lodging or campsites located in Gloss Mountains State Park, there are plenty of hiking trails and picnic areas to enjoy from sunrise to sunset. The spectacular scenery makes this a truly unique Oklahoma state park.
Park facilities include a restroom, pavilions, picnic areas, grills, public water supply and a handicap-accessible trail. Another of the mountain's popular trails runs from the parking lot to the top of Cathedral Mountain and across the mesa, offering a spectacular view of the valley floor and Lone Peak Mountain.
