Must Do!

Basically you just drive. Does cost to get in but well worth the time and money. Some pull outs. Bring your camera. Plan on 2-3 hours. Check out some wineries in the area.

The Grand Mesa is the largest flat-top mountain in the US and is a wonderful place to get away from it all. My father loved taking me fishing here and let me tell you, there are a ton of lakes to choose from. Definitely worth the drive up for the view alone!

Do not drive thru Grand Junction, CO without taking the time to drive thru the Grand Mesa. It is a beautiful drive . . . if you like the outdoors, you'll like the Grand Mesa!

I love the Grand Mesa. Even though this mountain appears less dramatic than its pointy-topped neighbors, it is the largest flat-top mountain in the world with all sorts of recreational offerings on its flanks. Over the years I’ve snowshoed here, spent the night in a cabin in the woods, rode my Ducati around its tight curves from Cedaredge to Debeque,... More

If you love the outdoors, you must make a trip to the Grand Mesa. Awesome skiing at Powderhorn, spectacular views during the fall with all the color changes. So many wonderful lakes for fishing and camping. If you like to rough it, get a camp site, or find the many options for cabins all over the Grand Mesa. Its a... More
