Colorado’s Top 10 Trail Runs

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.
