The Crag Crest Trail is located on Colorado's Grand Mesa. With 300 lakes to its credit, the Grand Mesa is truly "Land o' Lakes" country. The entire 10-mile loop of the Crag Crest Trail passes a number of these lakes and was designated a National Recreation Trail on March 14, 1978, by Forest Service Chief John McGuire. Very rarely used by mountain bikers, the trail features smooth and tacky, hard-packed terrain over exposed roots and rocks. This trail combines lake views with wildflowering hillside meadows set between mixed aspen and conifer forests. The Crag Crest Trail can be divided into two sections: the crest portion and the lower loop. The ride concerns itself strictly with the lower loop, as mountain bikes are not allowed on the crest portion. You should, however, make it a point to hike the upper crest portion of the trail, as it offers insight into the geological history of the Grand Mesa. During the height of the summer months, the mosquitoes in this area are some of the most bothersome in the state. September is usually a great time to visit. Terrain: Paved state road, paved forest road, improved gravel road, and singletrack. This route passes a number of lakes, as it makes its way through the forests of the Grand Mesa. Although not particularly technical, there are some short rock and root sections, as well as a few switchbacks with which to contend.
