Hero: Cimarron Grassland - Extreme - 607.A
small-sr Icon
Cimarron National Grasslands is USFS land surrounding 25 miles of the Cimarron river and a portion of the historic Santa Fe Trail, located in the southwest corner of Kansas. The terrain is rolling hills with tall prairie grass and a sandy river bottom full of cottonwood trees. Hiking and 4x4 trails crisscross the area in an extensive network. The closest town for fuel and supplies is Elkhart, KS. FR 607.A (Extreme) is an easy dirt double-track trail leading from FR 607 to FR 600.1L, which leads to the main road, North River Road (FR 600.1). This is a good alternate route rather than taking FR 607 through the narrow rough section around the gas equipment. This trail travels through cottonwood trees and tall prairie grass. Portions of the trail are soft sand which may require 4wd, and the tall grass in the middle of the road requires moderate clearance. This entire area is actively used for cattle grazing and oil and natural gas production. Always leave gates as you find them. Dispersed camping is allowed on the USFS land unless otherwise posted. However, there are very few clearings in the brush to set up a tent. There is an improved pay campground accessible from South River Road (FR 700.2)
