Grand Mesa-Uncompahgre-Gunnison National Forests

Grand Mesa-Uncompahgre-Gunnison National Forests

Located in Colorado, the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest, with almost 3,000,000 acres, is the third largest National Forest in the contiguous United States, extending into ten Colorado counties. The mostly forested, mountainous lands are located on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies. It is noted for its spectacular scenery and natural features, abundant wildlife and offers a great variety of outdoor recreation opportunities.

The forests include spectacular features like the 355 foot high Bridal Veil falls; the Grand Mesa with over 300 lakes, one of the world's largest flat top mountains; Alpine Tunnel, once the highest railroad tunnel in North America; and Dry Mesa Dinosaur Quarry, one of the world's largest dinosaur bone deposits.

Directions: Contact the address below for information on how best to access one of these three National Forests. Closest major cities include Grand Junction, Delta, Gunnison and Montrose, Colorado.
