Crag Crest Trail, Grand Mesa
It’s time to hit one of the most scenic runs in Colorado. Let it out atop Grand Mesa, the world’s largest flat-topped mountain. Below treeline, the trail winds through lakes and scenic wildflowers. The whole run sits above 10,000 feet so it can be difficult for out-of-towners who aren’t yet acclimated.
Distance: 10.9 miles (loop)
Elevation Gain: 1,521 feet
Trailhead Info: From I-70, get on Highway 65 towards Grand Mesa. Continue about 35 miles to the top of the Mesa until you reach the West Trailhead
