The Long House Trail gives visitors to Mesa Verde an intimate look into the parks colorful history. A tram transports hikers to the trailhead. Watch for birds of prey and make sure to pick up a trail guide at the ranger kiosk. This hike is a wonderful choice for small children and the elderly. The Morefield Campground inside Mesa Verde is a great place to stay during a visit to the park. Campers often see wild turkeys and mule deer from their site.
