The fall colors are spectacular, the air is crisp and the little towns in the area quite hospitable. Bring a picnic lunch, cold or hot drinks, extra batteries and allow for plenty of time to take photographs. Keep your electronics in the car as you will not want to waste time trying to find cell service while traveling through this... More

Only a 63 mile drive across the highest, largest flat top mountain in the world--over 300 lakes and some old growth forest with huge aspens! A MUST SEE if you are anywhere near Grand Junction. Lots of hiking trails, fishing and even skiing and snow mobile inn during the winter. One of the most beautiful places I have seen anywhere.

If you have time, this is an excellent day drive from Grand Junction; very scenic. Travel on to Hotchkiss and follow highway 92 to Hwy 50. Take a right and pick up the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, returning to Grand Junction via Montrose and Delta.

Grand Mesa is the largest flat top mountain in the world. The forest is beautiful. 300 lakes invite the fishermen to catch the... More

Grand Mesa is absolutely beautiful. There is plenty of hiking, sightseeing, and fishing for all. I could not get over the views and scenery. This is the perfect place for relaxing, and forgetting about the troubles of the world. When you are 9800ft up it is hard to get cell service, which my husband and I were more than happy... More

It was sure nice to see some trees after travelling through the lowlands and the heat. Fantastic views and nice winding roads for motorcycle riding :)
