Experience the stunning skies and the seemingly endless plains of the Comanche National Grassland.
When you fly to a jet charter airport in Springfield, Colorado, you’re transported to the northern gateway to this historic area that reaches across more than 435,000 acres in southeastern Colorado.
With roots reaching back hundreds of years, the Comanche National Grassland was home to the Comanche tribe for many years before cattle ranchers and homesteaders occupied the land. The region thrived as an agricultural hub for nearly 100 years until drought and overfarming created the Dust Bowl in the 1930s.
Now a popular destination for the best hiking, biking and camping in the state, the Comanche National Grassland is protected from overuse by the National Forest Service.
When you fly into Springfield, Colorado, you’ll arrive at the Springfield Municipal Airport. From here, you’re free to head into town and get settled in your business hotel or cozy inn before exploring the Colorado plains.
With a big sky as far as the eye can see, the Comanche National Grassland is unlike any other Colorado attraction. Full of incredible trails, such as the historic limestone markers along the Santa Fe Historic Trail as it intersects with U.S. 160, to breathtaking vistas in Vogel, Picture and Carrizo Canyons, the Comanche National Grassland transports you to a simpler time. And, depending on the time of year, there are even sunrise tours to see the rock art in Crack Cave, far removed from the common tourist destinations.
