  • A must see when visiting Mesa Verde. Fairly easy hike down to the site or view pretty well from up near the museum and park headquarters. Ranger lead hike was very interesting providing lots of relative information. Really cool to look inside such a historic site.

  • Along with the Cliff House and the Balcony House, the main spots to visit in Mesa Verde. The hike of easy any there's plenty to explore once you get to the site.
