America's Scenic Byways

Grand Mesa Scenic and Historic Byway

63 miles - Two hours to drive the entire byway, or 90 minutes along Highway 65 and 30 minutes roundtrip on the spur road to Land's End

This "playground in the sky" climbs from the rugged Plateau Canyon floor to the cool evergreen mesa forests, 11,000 feet up. Featured are hundreds of sparkling lakes, wildflower meadows and forests of shimmering aspen and pine. Take a side trip to Lands End Overlook where the Grand Valley unfolds below.
