Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Four Corners Monument. Go for a jaunt from Mesa Verde National Park to Shiprock to see Shiprock Rock Formation about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Balcony House, tour the pleasant surroundings at Petroglyph Point Hike, see the interesting displays at Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum, and explore the striking landscape at Square Tower House.

To find ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Mesa Verde National Park online attractions planner.

April in Mesa Verde National Park sees daily highs of 65°F and lows of 29°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
