It has been about 20 years since I have hiked this trail. I brought Snickers. It was windy in spots, but the wind cooled us off. Hawks and other raptors are nesting in the area. I didn't see any but heard some calls.
The Buttes are located in the Pawnee National Grasslands. Bring water. It is difficult to find the trails. There are signs, but they aren't too helpful. Great location for photography. Dog friendly on leashes. There is camping available at the Crow Valley Recreation Center. Be sure to wear good walking shoes or hiking boots. There are some cactus and you also need to be aware of rattlesnakes in the summer.
