Other Outdoor Activities
Mesa County is home to a wide range of trails and open spaces with several organizations creating and managing them. The information below is a small selection of the available recreation opportunities.
The BLM oversees much of the public land and trails in Mesa County. Recreational activities include fishing, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and OHV use. Look up specific trails by searching one of these areas: Debeque, Dominguez-Escalante Area, Fruita, Gateway, Grand Junction, and Palisade.
Made up of plateaus, canyons and sheer rock walls, the Monument area offers visitors the chance to bike, camp, climb, hike, and maybe even glimpse desert bighorn sheep.
Colorado State Parks
Mesa County has two main state parks. Highline Lake offers visitors a chance to use their motorized and non-motorized watercraft. While the James M. Robb State Parks, five different parks renamed in honor of a visionary, provides a wide range of activities. Come camp, hike, and play in the water!
