We travel on a motor cycle and it was a spectacular way to see this area. Start out early and visit the information centre. We took the sealed road next to visitors centre and stopped at the only eating place we could find.a comfortable stop.

We loved everything about our drive from I70 to 65 and the Grand Mesa Scenic Byway. The drive starts thru a gorgeous carved canyon. Then you climb up the mountain to the most spectacular mountain forests with hundreds of lakes. It's like another world. The air is crisp and clean. The lakes so clear. There are tons of rest areas... More

This is a huge area, and when the aspens are "quaking" it is especially beautiful. I visited on an earlier visit in October.

So much to explore with stunning views. Perfect for an hour or several days. There is something for everyone on the Mesa.

This is the first time my kids and I have been there. There were still some wild flowers blooming which were so pretty. There is a place there you can feed little squirrels. The kids loved it. Lots of places to take pictures.

A total natural delight. Summer is full of cool days and flowers galore. A great place to escape the summer heat of the valley floor.

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.

We spent a week in the Powderhorn ski resort at Grand Mesa in August. Grand Mesa is ideal for anyone who "needs to get away", loves hiking, loves fishing and in the winter loves skiing, of course. Grand Mesa is the largest flat top mountain in the world. The forest is beautiful. 300 lakes invite the fishermen to catch the... More
