guided and self guided tours are available.
Cliff Palace (Mesa Verde's Largest Cliff Dwelling)This 30-minute, ranger-assisted tour involves climbing four, 8- to 10-foot (2.6 to 3m) ladders, on a 100 foot (30m) vertical climb. Total walking distance is about 1/4-mile (400m), roundtrip. Cliff Palace is the largest cliff dwelling in the park with 150 rooms and 23 kivas, and may have been home to about 25 families. This exceptionally large cliff dwelling likely had special significance to the original occupants and surrounding communities. Many believe it may have been used as a social or administrative center and gathering place for ceremonies.

Long House (Mesa Verde's Most In-Depth Tour) This 60-minute*, ranger-assisted tour involves hiking 2.25 miles (3.6km) roundtrip with an elevation gain of about 130 feet (40m) and climbing two 15-foot (4.5m) ladders within the site. Allow 1-1/2 to 2 hours for the entire Long House experience (the total time for the tour and the walk between the kiosk and the Long House trailhead).
