The Grand Mesa

The Grand Mesa is the world’s largest flattop mountain – housing more than 500 square miles that stand more than 10,000 feet above sea level. The Grand Mesa Scenic Byway is 63 miles of uninterrupted breathtaking-views that include spellbinding vistas of this national forest’s geological features, lakes, and abundant wildlife. And in the fall, it offers the best leaf peeping in the entire region.

Lake of the Woods Trail

Lake of the Woods Trail is the perfect spot to hike and explore while beating the heat in the summer months. This ambling path supports hiking, strolling horseback riding, and mountain biking – but is closed to all motorized traffic. Lake of the Woods itself flows in and around the lushly forested meadows, dense aspen stands, and wildflowers along the trail. While this trek is relatively flat, it does wind through small streams and across some twisty and rocky terrain – with some excellent views of the Crag Crest Trail to bolster your progress.

Crag Crest National Recreation Trail

The Crag Crest Trail is a 10.3-mile loop that will afford you some of the most beautiful views in the Mesa. Ice can form on parts of the crest and there are some steeper ascents that novice hikers may want to avoid – there’s also a lot of wind up on the crest, and the weather can change on a dime. Be forewarned that parts of the trail have drops on either side of you that are not suitable for small children or the faint of heart. Most people hike this trail in just under five hours, and it really has it all, including:

  • Sweeping views of the Book Cliffs and the stately river valley heading toward Grand Junction
  • Densely forested woods
  • Grand open spaces
  • Gorgeous lakes
  • Mesmerizing rock formations
  • Wildlife sightings
  • Beautifully shaded areas

Land O’ Lakes Trail

If you are looking for a hike the whole family can enjoy and that is sure to please, stick to the Land O’ Lakes Trail, which is a mere half mile of paved trail that follows the Mesa’s ridgeline and leads to an overlook that affords some of the most breathtaking views of the Grand Mesa. On a clear day, you’ll see miles and miles of verdant forests dotted with sparkling blue alpine lakes.

Mesa Lakes Trail

The Mesa Lakes Trail is one of the Mesa’s most popular, and it’s well suited for the whole gang – regardless of your hiking chops. This easy 2.8-mile loop guides you along the shoreline of Mesa Lake – allowing you to appreciate it firsthand, instead of from a distance. In the warmer season, your hike will be painted with the brush of vibrantly lush wildflowers, but whenever you go, you’re not going to regret this outing.


The Mesa has some of the most stunning stargazing on the planet, and you shouldn’t miss it. There are also celestial bodies to be observed, and these astronomical beauties are ready to put on a show for free – all you need is a telescope or binoculars. If that isn’t an option, the Grand Mesa Observatory will rent or sell you what you need. The area’s remote location allows the night sky to shine bright.

Colorado monument

Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument is more of a national park than a monument, but whatever you want to call it, it sports 20,000 stunning acres of canyonland that is just 6 miles from downtown Grand Junction. The area received its designation as a national monument back in 1911, and since then it’s become a wonderland for outdoorsy types. Back in the day, Mr. John Otto was a miner who was just passing through when he put down stakes and made it his business to turn the area – with its vast canyons and stone monoliths – which he called the heart of the world – into a national park. Ultimately, a small section of these wild canyons became the national monument that it is today.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) went on to carve out the Rim Rock Drive by hand with pickaxes and wheelbarrows. This 23-mile scenic stunner of a drive is often referred to as taking a hike in your car. You’ll cling to the canyon wall’s edge while availing yourself of the stunning views from the 19 overlooks along the way.

Suffice to say that the Colorado National Monument offers some of the most boldly beautiful views in the area – or anywhere. The Canyon has 14 hikes that wind their way through it and offer you a more up close and personal experience.
