Steamboat Springs and Northwest Colorado Sights

Grand Mesa Scenic Byway

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Updated 09/06/2013

Fodor's Review

This byway is 63 miles long and winds its way along Highway 65 through meadows sprinkled with wildflowers, shimmering aspen groves, aromatic pine forests, and endless lakes. Scenic overlooks (Land-O-Lakes is a standout), rest areas, and picnic areas are clearly marked. There are two visitor centers on the Byway, which has endpoints at I–70 near Palisade and in Cedaredge.
