Mesa Verde National Park

 Mesa Verde Cliff Dwelling of the Ancients

Mesa Verde National Park is approximately 53 miles northeast of the Teec Nos Pos Trading Post.

Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.

Ranger-guided tours are offered seasonally, and provide you with the opportunity to hike into and experience these Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwelling sites.  Mesa  Verde National Park  is open year-round, but some facilities, tours, and access to archeological sites are seasonal.
