The Grand Mesa in Colorado is known as the largest flattop mountain in the world, encompassing hundreds of square miles and standing more than 10,000 feet above sea level. The Mesa Scenic Byway winds through 63 miles of the national forest, providing beautiful views of the park’s lakes, wildlife and geological features. The park, a short drive east of Grand Junction, Colorado, is a popular destination for fishing, camping, hiking and more during the summer months. In the winter, Grand Mesa, which is home to Powderhorn Mountain Resort, offers some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Colorado. Looking for the perfect high alpine hike to cool off in the summer or perhaps to view fall colors? Try the Crag Crest Trail.
