The U.S. Forest Service will be holding a celebration for the newly reconstructed Pawnee Buttes Trailhead on the Pawnee National Grassland (PNG) on April 20 at 10am. Employees will be on hand to cut the ribbon on this project, and will be available to provide information on recreation opportunities on the PNG.
The trailhead is located 56 miles from Ault and 73 miles from Greeley. Directions from Highway 14, travel north on Forest Service Road (FSR) 129. Next, travel east on FSR 110. Then follow signs to the trailhead area. The trailhead is northwest of New Raymer.
Remember, facilities are limited on the grassland. Be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen and have a full tank of gas in your vehicle before arriving.
The Pawnee Buttes are a signature landmark of the Pawnee National Grassland, rising more than 200 feet from the prairie floor and offers hiking opportunities.
