Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mesa Verde National Park: Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock), Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, & more). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at The Anasazi Heritage Center, contemplate the long history of Petroglyph Point Hike, explore the ancient world of Balcony House, and explore the striking landscape of Mesa Verde National Park.
