Things To Do

 

cutthroat-on-the-mesa The Grand Mesa is just a short distance from Montrose, Colorado. The drive alone is spectacular as you make the climb up from 6,000 feet elevation in Cedaredge. You end at 10,000 feet on top of the Grand Mesa–the world’s largest flattop mountain. Highway 65 is a scenic byway that starts in Delta, Colorado and runs over the Grand Mesa. From there you can follow Plateau Creek to Grand Junction, Colorado. This scenic byway is most often traveled during the fall, when the Aspens are vivid oranges and yellows.                                                     

moose-on-grand-mesa The mesa is home to more than 200 lakes filled with Rainbow Trout and the Native Cutthroat Trout. Fishing may take place all times of the year. Some people ice fish during the winter months, while others prefer to throw a fly out when the temperatures are somewhat warmer.

The Mesa offers several lodges that are open year around for lunch and dinner. The Grand Mesa Lodge has several cabins for rent, plus snowmobile tours for beginners. snowmobile-on-grand-mesa For advanced snowmobilers there are over 400 trails, a few of which are groomed for a smoother ride. I grew up in Cedaredge, which is just at the base of the Grand Mesa and have been a snowmobiler from the time I was five. I was not big enough or old enough to ride my own snowmobile, so I rode in front of my dad. He was a crazy driver and had a tendency of rolling the snowmobile over, luckily not ever hurting either of us. This was a great way for the entire family to spend quality time together, plus get a great workout.
