Peaks to Prairies - Tracks to TrailsThe Pike and San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands cover nearly 3 million acres, between the prairies of western Kansas and some of Colorado's highest mountain peaks along the Continental Divide. This landscape showcases a variety of ecosystems rich in history, geology, scenery, wildlife and recreation opportunities in three distinct social settings -  from highly social to solitude. People choose to live in nearby communities because of their love for the outdoors and their strong sense of attachment to the forests and grasslands. Their sense of commitment and volunteerism are the foundations for maintaining a quality, sustainable recreation program in the face of intense and growing urban demand.These sprawling forests and grasslands are an eight hour drive from boundary to boundary. The rolling prairies to the east are home to prairie chickens, wildflowers, paleontological resources and historical areas. The snow-capped Rockies to the west are a scenic backdrop to millions of residents and a draw to forest visitors. The forests are home to over half of Colorado's fourteeners with numerous alpine lakes, reservoirs and key rivers. Over 1 million acres of Wilderness, the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, Colorado Trail, and Santa Fe National Historic Trail are specially designated areas worth exploringNEW!! 2015 campground opening and closing dates!

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
