Grand Mesa Loop
As one of the top attractions in the area, Grand Mesa Scenic and Historic Byway, is a paved state highway between I-70 and Cedaredge. The spectacular 63-mile route begins in the scenic Plateau River Canyon, then climbs through forests and meadows full of wildflowers, to offer panoramic views from the top of Grand Mesa. Grand Mesa was designated for its historical qualities by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation as a National Scenic Byway in 1996 (the highest level of designation). It is one of eleven of America’s Byways® designated in Colorado.
