Where Mountains Meet Desert

This doesn’t mean it doesn’t get roasty toasty in the summer, but the Grand Mesa does provide an escape from the most extreme temperatures.

Open Early + Late Season

One of the biggest perks of hitting the trails on the Western Slope of Colorado is the longer season. The warmer climate and high desert terrain keeps the snow at bay.
