Denver to Mesa Verde National Park

Jump to last reply

Hello - I have 5 days to travel and would like to work my way to Mesa Verde National Park to spend a day and one half to two days.
I'd like to break up the driving by seeing other sites on the way there and on the way back if possible. Can someone suggest what I might be able to see?
I looked into The Great Sand Dunes which is 4 hours from Denver which would put me there a 2 pm. Is that enough time from 2 to closing 6? to see the park? Then another 4 1/2 hours to Mesa Verde again getting there in the afternoon. It will be Wednesday by the time I get into the park. How much time do I need to go on two tours and hike some?
Any suggestions for a trip itinerary would be much appreciated. I am a senior and cannot drive more that 4 hours a day.

Thank you!
