My husband and I went on a nice stroll at sunset lake on the Grand Mesa. It was a beautiful sunny day. No matter what time of year you visit the Grand Mesa, it's always so welcoming and relaxing. The views are really something to take in. Highly recommend.

You have GOT to be an out of doors enthusiast to love Grand Mesa. At over 11,000 ft elevation, it is the highest plateau in the world. Not only does it have the best kept secret ski area in Powderhorn Ski Resort just 1 hour away from Grand Junction but the mountain also provides hundreds of miles of well manicured... More

If you are on the western slope you have to drive up the Grand Mesa. Beautiful area going from desert to forest. Nice and cool, beautiful and peaceful. I love this place!

We had traveled over the Grand Mesa prior to this trip and decided to see if it was still snowed in. Yes it was, but the snowdrifts were beautiful to see. We just couldn't see the many lakes we passed by in the summertime. Grand Mesa is better off viewed after the snow comes off.

Any place as huge and beautiful as the Grand Mesa is a little hard to review. The summer activites include sightseeing, hiking, fishing, canoeing, jeeping, boating, riding ATV's on many designated routes and mountain biking just to name a few. There is golf at Cedaredge on the mesa and Grand Junction, Rifle and Delta near the mesa. You can fish... More

It was late October so the Aspen were for the most part bare, but the views were still spectacular. We approached it from the Northern end and after a relatively short drive stopped at the Mesa Lakes Lodge for breakfast. It was late in the season so there was hardly anyone else around. We were the only ones around except... More

It is several things to do around but it is a Mesa. Lots of great pics to be had and pretty countryside. They are a few neat little places to stop in.

It was a great drive, lots of places to pull over and see the sites. Very much like the Grand Canyon or Canyonlands Beautiful landscape.

From what I have read this is the signature hike for the Grand Mesa. I went with the intent of seeing lots of fall color, which I did at the lower elevations, but when I arrived at the east trailhead, I was immediately greeted by a few inches of snow. As we climbed to the ridge the snow got deeper.... More

Great views, beautiful colors. Really a relaxing drive. Take your time and enjoy the views. We were taking scenic byways and this one did not disappoint.
