The One Place In Oklahoma That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth
Did you know Oklahoma has a connection with
The Lord of the Rings? If you travel to eastern Oklahoma to Heavener Runestone Park, you’ll see the area looks like something from Tolkien’s “Middle Earth.” Here’s a look into Oklahoma’s mystical side that will take you far away from reality.
Heavener Runestone Park is a 55-acre, day-use park located in Le Flore County.
The park is one of the most unusual sites in the Southern U.S. due to its mysterious carvings on the side of the rocks.
Although not proven, most people believe these carvings were left by the Vikings over 1,000 years ago.
The massive rock is now called Heavener Runestone and is the focal point of the park.
Be very careful exploring Middle Earth. The rocks and boulders can be very slippery if you go off the path.
The area looks like something from another world...not something you would see in Oklahoma.
A beautiful waterfall flows freely below the rocks and is surrounded by lush greenery.
The park also features nature trails and paved walkways leading to the waterfalls and other mysterious places.
Including shelter and picnic areas.
The moment you enter Middle Earth, you'll be overtaken with the beauty that surrounds you.
Every direction you look will take your breath away.
Mother Nature is full of places to explore, but Oklahoma's Middle Earth is an epic voyage worth taking.
Heavener Runestone Park is located at
18365 Runestone Rd., Heavener, OK 74937.
