Although the winter months on the Grand Mesa are beautiful there really are things to do all year round. We like to visit the lodge to warm up in the winter and get cool drinks in the summer.

The lush green of the Mesa is a wonderful contrast to the surrounding dry valley. Make for a great afternoon drive on a hot day. Worth a visit.

Hiked the Craig Crest Trail - one of the best hikes around . It’s about 10 miles but a lovely loop. It’s best to go early before noon thunderstorms start because there is an exposed ledger for the prettiest part of the hike.

Wonderful place to camp, hike, fish, ride ATV's or just enjoy the beauty. Mosquito's can be a problem at certain times of the year.

I had great views from everywhere I went. The observation house is great but the roads on top snatch great views of the valley as well. You will have to park and walk a bit to get that euphoric view of nature. Make it a... More

Probably in May, or June I would say. It depends a lot on how cold the winter was. Also it is usually 15 to 20 degrees cooler up there due to the elivation all year long even in the summer.
