Spring / Summer / Fall / Winter


• Spring is full of life. The snow begins to melt and wake up the flora and fauna

• Summer goes into full swing

• Fall colors are freshly invigorating and clean

• Winter brings the biggest playground on the western slope

Camping, Hiking and Mtn Biking


Some of the best adventures on the Grand Mesa are shared with family and friends. Several campgrounds are designated with fire pits, restrooms, ADA access, and near hiking, fishing and other favorites.



With over 300 lakes and a few streams, you can find that favorite spot on the lake or somewhere to go solo and enjoy the whole scene for yourself. Year 'round fishing is available. We can't guarantee your success.

Skiing / Snowshoeing


Some of the best skiing and snowshoeing can be found on the Grand Mesa. Miles of marked trails offer a variety from groomed (thank you Grand Mesa Nordic Council) to break track style. GET A MAP



These groomed trails are well marked and in a different area from the skiers. The largest flattop mountain has the largest playground for your sled.

Be Prepared


Grand Mesa is 6,000+ feet from the valley below. Be prepared with plenty of water for hydration, layers for weather changes, lightning is common, mosquitoes are big and the fun is plentiful. TIPS
