 Imagine, driving on a mountain top where you can see hundreds of miles. You can do this on the Grand Mesa Scenic and Historic Byway with spectacular views and scenery while driving a scenic road with breathtaking landscapes overlooking endless forests and 300 lakes. It’s easy to feel like you’re on the top of the world, standing on the top of Grand Mesa, the largest flat mountain plateau in the world, high up in the clouds. As the song says on a clear day you can see forever. But there’s more than just road. You’ll discover Lost Lake, a glacier lake among basalt boulders, Powderhorn Ski Resort and the quaint town of Cedaredge. If you’re up for hiking – you’ll be up at the ridgeline, where bald eagles glide through the air. The drive encompasses four major ecological zones on one trip and along the route, you’re literally above the tree line. Enjoy the astounding scenic beauty!
