A guide to outdoor activities around beautiful Mesa County, Colorado.

Featured Hike of the Month!

This month's featured hike, The Mesa Top Trail, takes us again to the Grand Mesa, where the temperatures are cooler and the water is abundant.

The Mesa Top Trail will be more of a moderate hike. This 7.7 mile (one-way) walk will start at the Mesa Top Trailhead and wind its way through verdant forest with views of the lakes below. For a more detailed description, visit
