Grand County is home to a wonderful blend of valleys, lakes and peaks. Although Winter Park is the most known, Granby is actually the largest town. The county seat is Hot Sulphur Springs.
It was named after the Grand River, which is now the Upper Colorado River, and Grand Lake. The headwaters of the Colorado River are in the county in Rocky Mountain National Park.
