category : Tours
Cimarron National Grassland Auto Tour The Cimarron National Grassland Auto Tour is a self-guided, 50 mile tour which will take approximately 3 hours to complete. The tour includes 11 stops at unique places and features 6 points of interest. Stops include wildlife, a picnic area, oil production, sand dunes, a prairie dog town and scenic overlooks along the Cimarron River. A companion brochure, available at the District office, contains a map indicating the various stops on the tour, as well as numbered narrative segments which correspond to the stops. This scenic drive is a great way to see the Grassland by car. The roads are good gravel roads, and are accessible to sedans and most RVs, but caution is advised during wet weather as the roads become quite slippery with even small amounts of moisture.

The tour begins at the intersection of Highway 56 and Morton Street (Elkhart\'s main street) and continues throughout the Grassland.

Be sure to pick up your self-guided brochure at the Cimarron National Grassland District Office, the Morton County Museum or download the brochure from the USDA web site.
