I'm heading out to OKC to visit family who has just moved out there & checking to see if there are any spectacular places to visit within 2-2.5 hours of Oklahoma City?

Thanks

I've never hiked the Wichitas, but another possibility for next time is Turner's Falls.  There's a little bit of hiking around there, but not several days worth.

And the falls themselves are kind of cool too.
