Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa Verde National Park
Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mexican Hat (Mexican Hat Rock Formation & Valley of the Gods), The Edge of the Cedars State Park (in Blanding) and Million Dollar Highway (in Silverton). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Aztec Ruins National Monument, make a trip to Four Corners Monument, trek along Petroglyph Point Hike, and contemplate the long history of Cliff Palace.

Plan my day in Mesa Verde National Park using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 42°F, and evening lows to 15°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
