Fabulous!

We only had one full day here and so hiked Crags Crest Trail which was marvelous! Really wish we had spent more time in the area.

I visited in early September. There are so many places to pull out and just take in Gods beauty. There are trails everywhere and absolutely worth paying for. Your pass lasts a whole week too. Try to see it at different times of the day!

I'm local, so I go to the Grand Mesa quite a bit. Friends have homes and cabins. There's lots of lakes...some have fishing, some don't and are deceiving for the un-familiar. Craigs Crest trail is a TOTAL local favorite. Moose were released in an area about ten years ago and are thriving. You'll be lucky if you see one tho'.... More

What a spectacular drive anytime of the year. Summer time you can enjoy fishing - over 300 lakes to choose from or many hiking trails. Fall is colorful with the Aspen Trees treating you to yellow, orange and gold leaves. Winter time is covered with Colorado's sparkling snow- the local ski area - Powderhorn - has black diamond and beginner... More

If you go to Grand Junction Colorado it is a high mountain desert and within 45 minutes you are in an incredible forest with over 300 mountain lakes 10 to 20 degrees cooler and beautiful scenery. There is fishing, horseback riding and just all around great views. The town of Mesa on the way up there is the Wagon Wheel... More

I am fortunate enough to live in Grand Junction, and still visit the Grand Mesa multiple times a year. Each season has it's own beauty, but Fall is spectacular! We make sure that we take all of our houseguests up to enjoy the scenery. There are hundreds of lakes to fish or boat/kayak in while enjoying the natural beauty. Take... More

This is a great place to visit pretty much any time of year, but Fall is my favorite! Do the color loop and enjoy wonderful colors, spectacular views, hiking, crisp temperatures, maybe even wildlife! I highly recommend Grand Mesa!
