Grand Mesa National Forest
With mountain views on the horizon and the Grand Valley below, the Grand Mesa rises up 6,000 feet above Main Street in Grand Junction and 11,000 feet above sea level. About an hour’s drive from Downtown Grand Junction, the Grand Mesa National Forest has no main street of its own and little in the way of shops and restaurants, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t teeming with life. Moose, mule deer, elk, black bear and marmot are among the many animals that call the Grand Mesa home.
When the mercury rises in the Grand Valley, the Grand Mesa is a great escape from the heat. Temperatures can be twenty degrees cooler than in the valley below. In fact, the hottest it has ever been atop the Mesa is just 80 degrees. That doesn’t mean the sun isn’t strong: wear sunscreen and a hat to protect yourself at these altitudes.
In the early summer the hiking and fishing around the lower altitude lakes is ideal. The snow is mostly melted and the flowers are beginning to bloom. If you’re staying into the evening or overnight, be prepared for cooler nighttime temperatures.
Grand Mesa National Forest provides a perfect outdoor setting for adventure, whether you’re up for a hike, a day of fishing, a picturesque drive over the mountain, or a multi-night stay in a tent, cabin or lodge. The Mesa can be approached by venturing eastward on I-70 or down US 50 out of Downtown Grand Junction. In the summer, the venturesome driver can take US 50 to Lands End Road straight up the side of the mountain on a gravel road full of switchbacks. For the rest of the year (or less daring drivers), take US 50 to the town of Delta before turning onto State Highway 65 to head up the mountain.
The terrain changes quickly along the route as you head from the Grand Valley up onto the Mesa. Stop at the many pull-offs to soak in the views and take photos of mountains, lakes and colorful landscape. Many enjoy the winding roads and cool mountain air on a motorcycle or in a convertible. No matter what you drive, turn off the AC and roll down the windows as you cruise Route 65.
Enjoying a Colorado hike with scenic views, mountain lakes and untouched terrain is one of the most popular activities on the Grand Mesa. Stop at the Grand Mesa Visitors Center to pick up a map and get the scoop on where to hike. Snow can linger into July at peak elevations and four-wheel drive is recommended on many of the gravel roads early in the summer season where Moose are regularly spotted grazing in the meadows.
Anglers will find several species of trout, cutthroat and other fish well stocked in the lakes atop the Mesa. You can cast from the shores of the Mesa Lakes right by the main road or test your four-wheel drive and head deeper into the wilderness on forest roads to get some real peace and quite.
For the serious hiker looking for a challenging and even daring hike, look no further than the Crag Crest Trail. This 10-mile loop goes up over a needle edge trail that gets as narrow as three feet wide with cliffs hundreds of feet tall on either side. You can hike the whole thing or just the upper or lower sections.
Hunting in Colorado often feels boundless, with public lands that include 23 million acres of pristine pines, plentiful pocket meadows and pure-water ponds, so it's no wonder Colorado hosts the world's largest elk herd and the best chance at hunting, or simply viewing, these majestic animals in motion. Mule deer in the mountains, whitetail on the plains or the legendary elk of the Rockies — these are only some of many species that call Colorado home. Go primitive with a longbow, stay modern with a centerfire rifle or split the difference with muzzle-loading. Colorado is accommodating to most types and styles of take as long as you have that handy hunter education card (from Colorado or your home state). It's hard to resist hunting among golden aspen leaves in early season bow-and-muzzle-loading seasons, but cool weather and snow often help in a successful hunt. Big-game seasons run from August through January.
