Don't miss this on the way out of the park, it gives the best views of all the park. It is only a short uphill walk from the car park. Also walk past the lookout tower for a look back over the park behind you.

The last thing we did before we left the park. But the view there is to see in the park. Be sure to have your camera.

Just a short piece off the road. Nice views and great photos. Saw some beautiful blue feathered birds at this trail.

A nice easy walk up to the nighest point in Mesa Verde Park. We went early in the morning and the 360 degree views were beautiful. I guess we chose to pop up just to say we had been to the highest point.
