Pawnee Buttes - Pawnee National Grasslands

Boulder - Denver - Golden - Fort Collins - Lyons

The Pawnee National Grasslands are located within a 30 x 60 mile quadrant of northeast Colorado between Highway 14 and the Wyoming border. The grasslands span 193,060 acres of native short grass prairie in the South Platte River Basin. The Pawnee Buttes are among the grasslands' most prominent topographic features, rising nearly 300' from the open prairie floor. The Pawnee Butte Trail leads to the base of each butte with magnificent views and excellent wildlife viewing along the way.
