Description

Completed 7/18/2015, Mesa Top Trail is the newest singletrack trail on Grand Mesa available to mountain bikers. Go get some fresh dirt!

Like other trails on the top of Grand Mesa, elevation stays relatively flat, though this trail is downhill overall so it rolls faster than you'd expect. It was designed to connect a large parking area off of Hwy65 to the Flowing Park Loop.

COPMOBA stated that the trail skirts natural ponds, sneaks along a narrow hidden bench, and bursts out onto the very edge of the Grand Mesa with unparalleled views of the Elk and San Juan mountain ranges. It eliminates the need to travel by car to Flowing Parks trailhead, adding a few miles on the bike to enjoy versus in a car.
