Grimes Ranch - Kit Carson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This is a large ranch with shortgrass prairie, miles of frontage on Sand Creek, and unique bluffs that rise more than 50 feet above the creek bed. As this is some of the only topography in the area, birders might want to check the high areas for Sprague's Pipit in spring and fall migration.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie
Directions: To inquire about access to this ranch and to get directions, please contact Linda at the Flagler Conservation District (719-765-4676) a minimum of 48 hours in advance of your potential visit. Please remember that this is a working ranch as well as a private residence, and there may be times when the landowner cannot accommodate visits. While you are on the ranch, remember to stay on roads, leave gates as you find them (whether open or closed), and refrain from taking anything off the ranch or leaving trash behind.
