One of the largest flat-topped mountains in the world, Grand Mesa offers a great opportunity both to learn about the complex geology of Colorado and to enjoy some truly unique scenery. The premier hiking trail on Grand Mesa is The Crag Crest National Recreation Trail, which loops for 10 miles over one of the high points along the mesa top. From this memorable route, hikers can enjoy sweeping panoramas of surrounding mountain ranges and relish the quiet solitude of pristine forestlands as well.
