Pawnee

National Grassland - Colorado

Pawnee National Grassland is located in northeastern Colorado on the Colorado Eastern Plains. It is located in the South Platte River basin in remote northern and extreme northeastern Weld County between Greeley and Sterling. It comprises two parcels largely between State Highway 14 and the Wyoming border. The larger eastern parcel lies adjacent to the borders of both Nebraska and Wyoming. The eastern unit is drained by Pawnee Creek, a tributary of the South Platte. The western unit is largely drained by Crow Creek. The grassland contains several hiking trails, including one that allows foot access to the Pawnee Buttes, the most notable geologic feature of the grasslands. Bird watching is a popular recreational activity for day hikers, especially at the Chalk Bluffs, a raptor nesting site.

Welcome! Where to begin? Loggerhead Shrikes are found where shrubs and trees grow near open grassland. An abandoned homestead with a windmill to the west has a windbreak that provides nest sites for birds. Viewing Ethics Visiting and Viewing Tips
