Mesa(Spanish name for table) has many accessible lakes and several to hike in. The views are amazing. You drive through Pine and Aspen trees and pull off to look out the valley below. There are many places to camp or rent cabins. Cross country and snowshoe paths are groomed nicely. Ski resort is very popular. There are condos to rent... More

The Grand Mesa, just east of Grand Junction, CO, is not to be missed! In less than an hour, when it is 90°+ and dusty on the valley floor, the temp will be in the 70s with green forests and sparkling clear lakes....great for fishing, , hiking and biking. It's a great getaway-whether you live in Grand Junction or are... More

Hwy 65 is the primary and it goes from I-70 on the North to Cedaredge on the South. In between are miles of trails, ATV runs, lakes,... More

Go from the desert to the high alpine 11,000 feet above sea level. Speaking of level, it is very flat on top which is great for mountain biking or hiking the trails starting right from the highway. Lots of places to get off the pavement and explore. Good gravel road leads to "Lands End" which has a spectacular view of... More

The Mesa has sub-alpine down to pinyon/pine climates, so the view is ever changing and the wild flower season is spectacular. Summer and a bit of fall all vehicles can manage the the Mesa. The rest of the time, 4 wheel drive is the only sure way across and there are road closures when the snow is too deep. Be... More

Some of the prettiest views in the world. Beautiful lakes and cool shaded areas for summertime trips. Very good skiing in the winter, including some great cross-country skiing. Fall has some great color change to view from several stops along the hiway that goes across the Mesa.

This was a great drive on a beautiful sunny day! Before I knew it I was up at the top of the Mesa looking down at one of the many small communities. The view from here was outstanding and I could see for MILES! This is a drive you'll never forget!

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.
