Mountains of Recreation
Granby is surrounded by Arapaho National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands. Arapaho National Recreation Area and Rocky Mountain National Park are just a short drive up the road. Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain Reservoir, and Grand Lake are the three largest lakes in the county and contain fishing and boating to suit every outdoor adventurer. Hiking and biking trails crisscross the surrounding mountains. Golf is only a stone's throw away at Grand Elk Golf Course or Headwaters Golf Course with Grand Lake and Pole Creek Golf Courses just a few minutes farther.
If you enjoy winter sports, Granby is the place to be. There are two ski areas nearby, Sol Vista Basin and Winter Park Resort, and snowmobiling abounds in the county. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails are prevalent in the area, too. And of course, ice fishing is always popular. You will never run out of things to do and new sights to see in Granby.
