I have lived in Grand Junction all my life. My family and I have gone fishing, hiking, camping, or just to go for a picnic lunch or eat lunch and stay at one of the lodges.

This mountain (or Mesa) is not as well know as some destinations in CO, but it's well worth the trip. Very scenic for a drive, a hike, fishing, skiing, and mountain biking to name a few things.

We have been to the Grand Mesa many times, but this trip was to cut down our own Christmas Tree. We hiked in about a mile and then snowshoed the rest of the way to find our perfect tree. There are many species of trees to choose from, just grab a permit and follow the map. A great new tradition... More

We ride the motorcycle over the Grand Mesa often and it's spectacular in autumn. Nice winding roads and 20 degrees cooler than the valley. We usually stop for lunch at the Creekside cafe in Cedaredge. Mesa Lakes Lodge is also scenic with decent food though we had no service last time we tried to eat there. We left and went... More

We came from Salt Lake City for a quick escape to this amazing splendor of breathtaking beauty. We are originally from Colorado but had never been to Grand Mesa and I'm so happy to say we experienced this awesome creation. Clean, fresh crisp air, our lungs took it all in. We camped in our little Subaru at campground for $12,... More
