Using a GoPro On The Amazing Grand Mesa Crag Crest Trail

Quick Overview of This Post

Matt really needed to get out on a hike and he took the GoPro Hereo7 to the Grand Mesa near Grand Junction, Colorado and tried it out on the Crag Crest Trail. Turns out that the GoPro software makes some pretty cool videos of your trip automatically, and it even adds music. Your video syncs to the music too.

GoPro Hero7 Black Movie – Crag Crest Trail

The GoPro takes the footage you capture and produces videos like the one above, but only if you want it to. You can also view and publish the raw footage.

Check out the video at the bottom of this post which shows about a minute and a half of raw GoPro footage from the Crag Crest hike.

Interested in the Crag Crest Trail?

The Crag Crest Trail is a US Forest Service trail located in the Grand Mesa National Forest in Colorado. Grand Junction is the closest city.

The trail is a 10.3 mile loop and it is beautiful!

There’s no need to hike the full loop if you don’t want to. A hike to the actual “Crag Crest” is about 3 miles from the trailhead, so you can get in a short dayhike and be home before lunch if you want to (depending on where you’re coming from).

It’s not super steep either. I would definitely take the kids next time.

He also used the Chest Mount harness on this trip, but I know he’s going to experiment with different mounts on future hikes this year, so check back to see how those work out.

  1. The GoPro is a great video camera for sunny days but not a fan of using it on cloudy storm days or at night. It’s horrendous if you’re trying to get a shot at night unless you have another light with you. Great product for the price though.
