No matter your physical abilities, this park should not be missed. The rim tour (on your own at no extra cost) shows so much about the living arrangements of the early people in the gorge. Ranger walks further emphasize the lives of the native peoples, providing a history lesson about the area that we never learned about in school in... 更多
If you are anywhere near this park you must go! The historical significance of the area coupled with the ruins and the landscape are more than spectacular. I recommend viewing the film at the museum up by Spruce Tree. It's very informative. In the alternative it might pay to do some reading about the area before your trip. We were... 更多
Mesa Verde is an amazing experience. It is a National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It contains over 600 archeological sites including community sites ranging from basic pit houses to exquisite cliff dwellings. It is the largest archeological preserve in the country. We took a ranger guided tour to Balcony House and a self guided tour of Spruce... 更多
If you are the Four Corners Region from Spring to Fall, definitely check this place out. Come with a full tank of gas if you are going to explore the park on your own. Went on the self guided tour and thought the long drive to and into the park was well worth it.
The park is so nicely planned. The visitor center was so informative. The Rangers were knowledgable, friendly, going above and beyond to assist and inform. They were great with the younger set. There is do much to see so allow plenty of time. The ruins are amazing, truly. Museum, trails, exhibits all offer so much historic information. We were there... 更多
You drive up and lose track of what time you live in. When you get to the over look that lets you view the carved and lived in caves below you realize that many many years ago people made a civilization here. The tours are great but silence of walking it alone is even better.
From the main highway into the park is only 20 miles, but usually takes almost an hour due to the steep twisty road and the climb to over 8400 feet. However, it is worth it! The museum and information centre are very interesting and give lots of information about the people who lived here. We took a walk down a... 更多
We were traveling from Denver to Santa Fe, then on to Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde, CO, and back to Denver for our flight back home. Neither my wife nor I have spent much time in the Southwest, so we both were eager to go exploring. The highlight of our trip was to spend a few days... 更多
Mesa Verde National Park isn't the most beautiful national park we've visited, but we were treated to some outstanding vistas from the highest point in the park (Point Lookout) and were able to get down to the Spruce Tree House Pueblo village. Most importantly, we were able to get back up from the Spruce Tree House. The walk is paved... 更多
I had heard and read about Mesa Verde National Park for years, and we finally got there this Spring. We finally figured out you cannot get there by accident, or en route to somewhere else, as it is basically in the middle of nowhere. But this "nowhere" is as spectacular a bit of North America as you will find anywhere.... 更多
Traveled in late April the park is still the same from when I was a kid but still a great place to visit. The new visitors center is beautiful and full of info before you venture into the park. Unfortunately The road to Long House is closed ot this time of year and the Sruce House was under renovationbut we... 更多
