Steamboat Springs and Northwest Colorado Sights

Grand Mesa National Forest

Updated 09/05/2013

Fodor's Review

The world's largest flattop mountain towers nearly 11,000 feet above the surrounding terrain and sprawls an astounding 53 square miles. Grand Mesa National Forest attracts the outdoor enthusiast who craves the simple life: fresh air, biting fish, spectacular sunsets, a roaring campfire under the stars, and a little elbow room to take it all in. The landscape is filled with more than 300 sparkling lakes—a fisherman's paradise in summer. The mesa, as it's referred to by

locals, offers excellent hiking and camping (try Island Lake Campground) opportunities. There are also a handful of lodges that rent modern cabins. You can also downhill ski at Powderhorn Resort, cross-country ski, snowshoe, snowmobile, or ice fish.
