Southeast Colorado is one of the best-kept secrets of the state. Around the Fowler area, outdoor enthusiasts will find miles of trails and rural roads just right for hiking, biking, or plain exploring — all within minutes of Fowler.
The area abounds with natural beauty. From the red-hued cliffs and steep bluffs of the Purgatory River to the open high plains of Comanche National Grassland, you can get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and slow down a bit. Bird-watching expeditions, wildflower excursions, or historic journeys back in time are yours — all within a short distance from Fowler.
Comanche National Grasslands
The primary purpose of the Grasslands is the responsible management of 419,495 acres of range lands and the wildlife management of approximately 275 different species of birds that use or live here. In addition, there are about 40 different species of reptiles, 9 amphibians, and 11 fish in the grasslands. Lions, bears, antelope, foxes, and bobcats are among the mammals that inhabit the more remote regions.
The Santa Fe Trail
Fowler is located in the heart of the Old Santa Fe Trail country. U.S. Highway 50 from the Kansas border through La Junta and U.S. Highway 350 from La Junta to Trinidad follows the "Mountain Route" of the Santa Fe Trail. Here on Highway 350, on your way to Trinidad, you can easily travel and explore the old trail by car. Faint traces of the old wagon ruts can still be seen just outside of La Junta and along Highway 350 at various locations.
West U.S. Highway 50, from La Junta through Fowler and on into Pueblo along the Arkansas River, follows a spur of the old Santa Fe Trail. Long a favorite route for Native Americans, fur trappers, gold seekers, and later settlers. This was the route that led to the fabled "Shinning Mountains" — today known as the Rocky Mountains.
