Gloss Mountain is a flat-top mesa that rises 150-200 feet above the surrounding plains in northern Oklahoma to the west of the town of Enid. The mesa is half a mile long but no more than 150 feet wide (excluding a couple of wings). It rises to the north of US Route 412. A stairway starts on the south side of the mesa and goes to the top. My hike on the periphery of the mesa came out to a total of 1.85 miles.
A much larger series of mesas called Glass Mountains rise on the south of US Route 412. When I was in the area, barbed wire blocked access to the Glass Mountains.
From Enid, Oklahoma drive 40 miles west on US Route 412. Gloss Mountain State Park is on the north side of the road.
