AAA Editor Notes

Long House is in a small side canyon off Rock Canyon on Wetherill Mesa. The second largest cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park, Long House can be visited only on ranger-guided trips in summer. The round-trip hike is 1.3 miles, with a 130-foot gain in elevation upon exiting. During the tour, visitors climb two 15-foot ladders within the site. The tours can be strenuous due to the elevation, steepness and summer heat. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
$4. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center or the Colorado Welcome Center in Cortez.
Hours: Guided tours are available. Schedule varies; phone ahead for times.
