Just a flat-topped mountain wonderland. Breathtaking views, wildlife, skiing, shoeing, biking and on and on. A must-see for visitors.

I've lived in Grand Junction my entire life and The Grand Mesa still awes me. It's a beautiful drive, and if you like to camp and/or fish, there are plenty of places to do it. I grew up camping on the Mesa and now my kids are experiencing it. Definitely worth the time to take the drive, and if you... More

This is truly a remarkable place - the largest mesa in the world. The scenery is marvelous at any time of the year, but particularly in the fall when the aspen trees are turning color. On the north side there is a view of the Colorado River Valley and on the south side is a view of the Gunnison River... More

Have cross-country skied across Colorado for more than 2 decades in more isolated places than Grand Mesa (GM). GM is very close to the city, but far enough removed to get a wilder experience. There are at least three separate ski areas, all well groomed and accessible. We went to the Skyway area on a somewhat blustery March morning/afternoon. The... More

WOW!! My first time snowmobiling. Small group of four. John was incredible at explaining everything, fitting the right vehicle with rider, and even pointing out tips for safety and etiquette in an easy to understand way. Nothing was overwhelming. Everything was spectacular. Eat hearty and carry a snack. Restrooms only at the beginning and end of trip. SO much fun... More

The Grand Mesa is the largest flat-topped mountain in North America, a volcano at one time! At 10,000 feet in elevation there are many peaks and valleys that show the back country of Western Colorado. From spring to winter the sights are endless. Spring flowers along the lakeside, cool summers while fishing, the autumn Aspen trees that are golden, and... More

We went to Grand Mesa Lodge for an afternoon of snowmobiling. Initially we were going to go independent, but then decided to join Mike's guided tour. We were apprehensive to join a guided group (even though we are just beginners) because we didn't want to be stuck in a group that went maximum 15 mph for the whole 3 hours--ugh!... More

The Grand Mesa is a treasure of peaks, ridges, meadows and lakes. It provides water to the valley below, recreation in all seasons including excellent skiing and hiking, and much beauty and tranquility.

You should try to find a moose up there. Many people see them and it is one of the few places they exist in Colorado. We love to go fishing on the many lakes in the summer. There are many ATV trails that our whole family can enjoy. Winter time is a snowmobilers paradise. Of course we always like to... More
