Ascent Trip ReportCanadian County is not far from Oklahoma City, and is named after the nearby Canadian River. It was nearing the end of the day and I was tired and sticky from the humidity. The highpoint for Canadian County is simple, a small swell of land in a field with a road to the top.
From highway OK-37 in Hinton, I went east and south on local roads to the road that went to the "top", which is barely discernible to the eye. I drove in this final road, a scant two-track etched into the grassy field. I got out to stand on the highpoint, but didn't stay long. I had no room to turn the truck around, so I backed out the entire quarter-mile. I stayed in a hotel west of Oklahoma City.
