Create an itinerary including Long House
Take a step back in time on a guided tour of Long House, the second-largest cliff dwelling in the western section of the national park. Soak in the ambience as you navigate down a steep but easy trail, listening to your ranger guide explaining the architecture of the place. Apart from regular and ceremonial rooms, the dwelling features a tower, a central square, and an interesting water supply system. If you feel like hiking, note that the Long House Loop leads to various trailheads. Plan my trip to Mesa Verde National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Awesome cliff dwelling. Tickets are required. You must be capable of climbing a ladder and hiking down into a canyon.
  • Excellent view of cliffside dwelling. Park Rangers gave a great deal of history and details.
