We hiked this trail early in the morning; highly recommended. We were the only people on the trail. It's a climb made up of many switchbacks. Bring water. The view at the top is absolutely wonderful. You can see for miles from all sides. It's...More

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.

Great pics, but these are of Park Point, not Point Lookout. Both are great destinations at Mesa Verde NP. I recommend both.

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