Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful pristine lakes, nice climate at the higher altitude with a lot of great trails that don't have as much elevation change as some other mountain trails more to the south. Make sure to bring mosquito spray because they are heavy up here in the summer.

    It was fun, mostly just an old city vibe with some cool restaurants, (though the one we tried was nothing special) statues and statuettes, but not very lively. It was pretty dead even on a Friday night which was surprising.

    Great place to have practice and have fun. The playground is great it has a zip line and is huge. Also, it has pavilions that are great for picnics

    Amazing hike in the Desert! Be careful and make sure you are prepared. We hiked over 9 miles that day and had no luck in finding any petroglyphs and were luck we had our water filters to stop by the Gunnison river and fill our water bottles and wet our clothes. Temps were up to 117 while we were out and made it a difficult hike with no shade. The views are amazing and the trail is well marked but we did not have any luck on the art side of things. We really enjoyed the hike and really felt tiny in the canyon. Be prepared with plenty of water, filtration system, sunscreen, proper clothing and shoes. You will hike about 2 miles along the river before you cross the bridge and hike back to the trailhead. Once in the canyon we had no luck in finding water.

    What a fun, fun winery! One that really understands customer care. The service and interaction with wine lovers is tops! This winery is a real gem that has many varied wines. Grapes I'd never heard of. Especially the Chambourcin. You gotta try it! I think it's a hybrid. So delicious and pairs well with anything you would want a red wine for. Steak, Italian red sauces and pizza. Try it with dark chocolate. YUM! Firm structure and pleasant tannin. I recommend you decant it for about 1/2 hour before drinking.

    The museum is worth a visit. They have an extensive section on the history of the indigenous peoples of the area. The anthropologists have found not only a common cultural thread but also commonality of language between the Utes and the Aztecs. The Utes were driven out of the Grand Junction area and white settlers were invited in by the US government in the 1880. There is also an interesting section on uranium mining.

    I spent all morning here. Came for the farmers market but there is so much more. This was an apple farm with packing plant that started in the late 1800's. Lots of volunteers maintain this farm and railway museum. The produce I bought was grown on site (I got tons of tomatoes). I am over 65 and took everything in including riding the 1932 fire engine and the little train pulled by an antique tractor. The young man who was "conductor" of the train told me about the things we drove by. I recommend taking the train ride first, then walking around. They have restored buildings, a victory garden like during WWII which is where the vegetables came from, a hugh indoor mini train display with amazing scenery detail, and outdoor train display. There is also some restored train cars and a building with items from a Swedish family who farmed in the area.

    Lots of fun. Great price for 12 laps or so. Friendly staff. Nice go-carts - fast too. Track is a bit bumpy.

    This is a super fun brewery! We stopped in here after hiking at Colorado National Monument and coming here was a great way to relax. They have flights and we got a variety of beer including stouts, IPAs, and sours and they were all really good. The taproom is spacious and has lots of TVs so it's a great place to watch some sports. They had a food truck outside when we visited and our burgers and fries (+sweet potato fries) were absolutely delicious. The staff were also really nice and it was a great stop overall. We will definitely be back on our next road trip!

    Hiked over five miles in Main Canyon (trailhead at Coal Creek near the Cameo Exit 46 on I-70 near Palisade) with a hiking group of 20 hiking club members: active, mobile 60-80+ year old hikers.) We saw over twenty wild horses scattered in the canyon bottom and up the steep hillsides. Shallow water (ankle deep) creek crossings on the hike. We also saw a band of about one dozen Rocky Mtn bighorn sheep below the cliff escarpments on the west side of the canyon. Recommend a hiking stick or trekking poles, sunscreen, and hiking boots (there is quite a bit of prickly pear cactus that can poke through sneakers). Take plenty of water for your hike. Very little shade, so be prepared.

    It was an amazing experience with the horses. They were not particularly bothered by our presence so we got quite close (15 yards) as we passed through a herd of sixteen or so horses. No guarantee you will see horses because they are free to roam, but it is magical when they show up.
