  • Such a great ruin when it was open, sad they had to close. Still very much worth the walk down to see it from a ways off!
  • Amazing ruins. Closed now (Summer 2016) for stabilization work, this ruin is still visible from the overlook trail. Worth the short 3 minute walk.
  • Another amazing spot in Mesa Verde! Must see location! One of several cliff dwellings in the Park!
  • 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.
