Great trail for an easy drive and scenic overlooks. Hit it late October with a dusting of snow on the ground.

Not the most technical trail but the views are hard to beat! Great way to beat the heat in the summer as well when it's 100+ in Grand Junction.

This is the type of trip where you shouldn't be in a hurry. The wind can be a major factor.

We rode this in October of 2017 with two friends on large adventure motorcycles. Mine is a BMW R1200 GS. We asked about the road on advrider.com, where a few guys said it was totally doable on our bikes. Which it was. There had been a snowstorm two days earlier, but it had all melted, and the road was slightly muddy, but solid. it got a little sketchy at the very top, but nothing we couldn't power through. I would say that if you are moderately experienced on big adv bike, stand on the pegs, and are comfortable counter-balancing as you go through those hairpins, you'll have no problem. If you're someone who sits and doesn't get what I just said about standing and counter-balancing, this is going to be too much for you, unless it is super dry. The views are fantastic. The biggest issue was, as a first-timer on the road, not knowing exactly what we were going to encounter. At the lower elevations, everything was easy-peezy, but as I said, at the top, things get a little sketchy (the road narrows, and its colder, so some of the snow remained, and there was more mud), and it's not like you are going to want to turn around, head back down and do a 60-mile detour to get back on your track. Funny, at the top there's an observatory, but we were so geeked about getting to the top that we skipped it. Also, the top is paved for a few miles along the edge of the mesa. Then it turns in and turns back to dirt, and yo basically just cruise till you connect back up with the main highway across the mesa.

A fun way to get up on the Mesa and see a different side as well. Good hiking trails on the way up too.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. There's a Visitor's Center, now closed, at the top of Land's End Road, and a short trail called "The Views" from there to an OHV staging area that is just tremendous. Also the little ground squirrels are adorable and will eat right out of your hand! Do yourself a favor and visit in the summer when the heat in the valley's got you going crazy. You'll be glad you did.

Easy drive unless you meet a motor home coming the other way! Be sure to stop and visit the old BLM line camp before heading down. The water bubbling up from the spring in the original ice house in bone chilling cold even mid summer.
