The Grand Mesa, the world’s largest flattop mountain, is part of a combination of separate national forests including the Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests located to our west only an hour away. Grand Mesa is the backdrop for all sorts of outdoor activities including downhill and cross country skiing, hiking, fishing, and snowmobiling. The area includes spectacular features like the 355 foot-high Bridal Veil Falls; more than 300 lakes, and Alpine Tunnel – at one time the highest railroad tunnel in North America.
