DescriptionThis is a town of ~2500 which sits approximately 12 miles east of Grand Junction (on the western slope) along the I-70 corridor. This area may be best known for its excellent climate and soil for growing Colorado grapes for the Colorado wineries. Winters here are mild; however, summers can be enervating.
Among the climbing nearby, there is the somewhat outrageous climbing of the loosish, small towers emerging from the talus located just along the interstate.
There are a couple restaurants, a grocery store, a couple breakfast bars, and, of course, The Peach Street Distillery and the Palisade Brewery (thanks, Pat).
This entry was created to match the submissions entered initially in the vicinity by one of its locals.
Getting ThereMost folks will drive here via I-70. The town can be accessed via Exit 42 (or 44). Mt Garfield (~5500') is located WNW of Palisade, just north of the interstate. G.70 road which accesses the Mt. Garfield trailhead can be accessed via exit 42 and going south and then west.
