I had the privilege of living on the slopes of the Grand Mesa for several years. If there has ever been such a thing as a multi-use area this is it. In winter, there are areas for snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. The North face of the Mesa is home to Powderhorn Ski Resort, with great runs from beginner... More

We love going to the Grand Mesa. It has the best colors in the fall time. Reds, yellows, and oranges. Most of the mountains are just yellow aspens. This offers something nicer. It has a lot of pull-offs to see scenic views and hikes to lakes. Good fishing for trout especially when stone fly hatch is happening. Great place to... More

Every July, when we can look up and see that the snow has melted, we go up to Grand Mesa to take pictures of the wildflowers. GM is COVERED in huge fields of flowers in the summer! It is a reliable place to find Colorado Columbine, but there are many many more kinds including a couple that I've never seen... More

Grand Mesa is a unique flat top mountain area covered i hundreds of lakes. In the summer you can enjoy the cool temperatures and the wonderful smell of the mountains. In the winter you can enjoy Powderhorn Ski Area, cross country skiing, sledding and snowmobiling. It's a beautiful diverse area with beautiful views of the Grand Valley.

The Grand Mesa has excellent hiking in summer. Our favorite trail is Crag Crest, which traverses across a rocky spine with panoramic views. It also has great groomed Nordic Trails in winter. We usually snowshoe at either Skyway or Ward Lake.

Spectacular 3 hour snowmobile tour with owner/guide Mike. Starting at Grand Mesa Lodge going all the way to Land's End. We stopped numerous times to enjoy the spectacular views with Mike pointing out points of interest along the way! The views were spectacular and I would highly recommend Mike's tours!

Excellent place with a great landscape, before winter season the yellow colors are fantastic. This place is not to far from Grand Junction and has a lot of options to ecotourism.
