Description - Administered by the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forests, the grassland is fairly level in elevation and is criss-crossed with eroding creek drainages, and elevations range from 4,900' on the prairie to 5,500' at the summit of the Pawnee Buttes. The Pawnee National Grassland was transferred to the Forest Service from the Soil Conservation Service in 1954. It was designated a national grassland in 1960.

Climate - Climate conditions in Colorado should be taken seriously throughout the state. Snow and ice are common on roads and trails from mid-October through late April. In the summer months snow is still possible but less common. Varying conditions throughout a given day can be expected throughout the year. Remember that summer days can typically have beautiful sunny mornings and short sudden thunderstorms in the afternoon. Please prepare appropriately for your outdoor experience.

Location - The Pawnee National Grassland is located approximately 30 miles east of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Report: Bit of a long drive out Hwy 14 to see the Pawnee Buttes, but well worth the travel. Grassland is a stunning sight at dusk, with the mountains framing the background. Suggestion for the next guy: Leave it as you found it, for the next guy. I did! Mike in Colorado
