Because of the scenic view it offers, the Land Of Lakes Trail #713 is one of the most used trails on the Grand Mesa. It is a very short trail which is paved for the entire distance, making for a quick and easy hike. The trail travels out to a rim overlooking a series of lakes and reservoirs and then circles back to the parking area in a loop. At this overlook there are interpretive signs and information concerning the glacial construction of the lakes and reservoirs below.
