Grant, Co. is set in the mountains just south of the Mount Evans Wilderness Area. Grant consists of a couple of restaurants and bars surrounded by rustic cabins. The drive along U.S. 285, a former railroad line serving Denver, features mountain vistas, winding canyons, quaking aspens and craggy granite outcroppings. The scenic roadway is especially stunning during the changing of aspen leaves in late September. The South Platte River also roars alongside this town, making Grant a popular fishing destination.
A turn onto County Road 62 in Grant leads to a dirt road winding to the top of Guanella Pass and down the paved side into historic Georgetown. This road affords superb views of changing aspens each fall. Just beyond Grant is 10,000-foot Kenosha Pass, a mecca for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and - if nothing else - spectacularly scenic picnicking. The famed 500-mile Colorado Trail crosses the highway here and winds its way into the resort town of Breckenridge, while to the south of Grant awaits the Pike National Forest, some of the best mountain hiking in the state.
