Long House is open between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day. Long House is located on Wetherill Mesa in the western portion of Mesa Verde National Park. Long House is reached by driving out a 12 mile winding road that leaves the main park road just beyond the Far View Lodge near mile marker 15. The steep, winding road follows an historic fire trail for 12 miles. Vehicle length is restricted to 25 feet or less. Along the route are a series of turnouts and overlooks with information about natural features and forest fires. At the end of the road you will find public restrooms, a snack bar, and an orientation area. Purchase tickets for the two hour tour of Long House at the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center before driving to Wetherill Mesa.
You have to get a ticket for a guided tour in order to visit, but it's soooo worth it. You get more access to the interior of the dwelling-- just be prepared for wonky stairs and ladders. Plus keep an eye out for wild mustangs and other rad wildlife!
