This is a 2 hour ranger tour that starts at Wetherill Mesa info desk. Takes about 2 1/2 hours, sneakers or hiking shoes are a must. Definitely recommend because the dwellings are so amazing.

By all means while in Mesa Verde try to book one of the ranger lead hikes which take you into one of the sites. You cannot truly appreciate what these dwellings are like from afar.

Our tour of long house was amazing. Our ranger, red beard (didnt catch his name), was so so good. His style was compelling, smart and gave a deeper understanding of the people who called Long House home. He made poignant connections to the present, including...More

This was my favorite spot in Mesa Verde. The hike was a bit on the strenuous side (which they warn you about), but well worth it. I loved that just one group was there at a time, so you could get great pictures of the...More

This is one of the big four cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, along with Cliff Palace, Balconty House and Spruce Tree House. (Spruce Tree house is closed while the park service tries to come up with a way to stabilize the cliff over the site)...More

Long House is on Wetherill Mesa, only open in summer, but check with website or Facebook and, yes, you have to get a tour. You will be walking on the Mesa and walking on the ruin.
