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

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 :)

Probably the most under-rated place in Colorado.. Grand Mesa National Forest and Recreational Area is something to behold. Grand Mesa looms over 10890+ feet and is an entire plateau. It's not a mountain. Grand Junction below, around 5K feet seems like a tiny settlement in a river valley. But this is nothing. I was there in July of 2014 and... More

This is what high country Colorado is meant to be. Beautiful meadows, tons of lakes, great fishing and hiking trails. A great place to visit at 10,000 feet.

The paved road through this fascinating geological area is only 2 lane and winds a lot. The views are wonderful, but do not plan to do it in 30min. The visitors' center is well worth the stop for education, views, gift shop and bathrooms.
