We're passing through to Durango and would like to stop by on Nov 3 and see the best of Mesa Verde.
I'm aware of the Cliff Palace closure but I'd like to see Long House, Balcony House, Spruce Tree House and maybe the Petroglyph Point Hike. Are these open in November? The NPS site seems to be a little contradictory saying the sites are open till the end of October.... is access restricted after that or are services just suspended for the winter?
We are ok with the hike distances - we'll be trail running to each site in order to see as much as possible. I just want to make sure the sites will be open!
Thanks in advance.
