Mesa Verde

Jump to last reply

How long should we spend in the Mesa Verde National Park?
And any advice on what to do to get the most out of the visit?

We're tossing up whether to spend two nights in the park or one.
The one night involves driving from Santa Fe to the Park arriving about 2 in the afternoon, buying tickets for the tour the next day, checking in and may be taking a drive. The following day doing two guided walks and a drive before heading back to Durango. Is that feasible? If we do two nights, then we would need to reduce our stay in the Durango, Silverton, Ouray area from 4 nights to 3 nights. Our time is not unlimited.
All suggestions welcome.
Also any suggestions on the Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Telluride area, including accommodation ideas.
Thanks in advance.
