Trail Overview

From north to south, Pants Butte Road takes you through part of western Nebraska that makes you feel like you're driving through a painting. At both ends of the road, you're able to see for miles and miles, and the views do not disappoint. The road surface on the north half is mostly graded dirt, eventually giving way to crushed limestone to the south. The road is decently maintained, although the switchbacks going up Pants Butte at the south end might be sloppy in rain or snow. There are mostly large ranches on either side of the road, and you'll see several herds of cattle--but you'll also have the opportunity to see wildlife like pronghorn and elk.
