Hero: Cimarron Grassland - Liquid Terminal - 607
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 is an easy double-track trail through the heart of the Cimarron Grasslands, crossing the full variety of terrain. Most of the trail is easy packed dirt, but there are sections of loose sand that may require 4WD. The trail crosses the Cimarron River, which is often dry, but may be difficult to cross when flowing. Beware of the possibility of flash floods if it is raining anywhere in the area. North of the intersection with FR 607.A is a barbed wire gate with some oil and gas equipment on the north side. It is possible to drive through this gate and around the equipment, but it is very tight, and the trail is much rougher. A good alternative route is FR 607.A, which will also lead to FR 600.1. This entire area is actively used for cattle grazing and also for oil and natural gas production. Always leave gates as you found 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)
