Grand Mesa has a variety of scenery, and 300 or so lakes for fishing. Cabins are available, but many visitors like to tent camp. Powderhorn Ski Resort is located here, with some nice, modern condos for spending a few days. It is not a place for those looking for places to shop, but if one truly enjoys an enriching, wilderness... More

The drive over is beautiful. We stopped at Grand Mesa lodge for lunch. The food is good and the prices were very reasonable.

We took a drive up the Mesa after a day of skiing at Powderhorn resort. The views were spectacular and I'm so glad we cut our ski day a bit short to take the drive. I only hope we can go back some time in the winter to cross-country ski or snow mobile or in the summer to enjoy hiking.

I have gone camping on the Grand Mesa numerous times waking up in my tent looking out to the beauty of the lake and nature is so relaxing. I have also stayed at Alexander lake lodge in a cabin they are amazing and the food they serve is delicious. The staff is friendly.

Don't know what David B was expecting but we were on GM the week after July 4. The drive is interesting but as some have said drives can be had most anywhere. If you just drive through GM you will miss most of it. GM is a unique 500 sq mile largely flat 10000 ft high mountain top. It is... More

The Grand Mesa is one of the world's largest flat-top mountains. As you rise from the Grand Junction and the desert valley below the view begins to change from barren sandstone to a lush green environment with pine forests and spring-fed lakes that are teeming with fish. Once you climb 600ft to the top you can find spectacular views of... More

Hiking, biking, camping, fishing, paddling, nordic and backcountry skiing have been my favorite activities on the Grand Mesa. After years of exploring there is still a lot of terrain left to see.
