Notes

Petroglyph Point Trail in Mesa Verde National Park begins at the Spruce Tree House Trail. This trail is the only one in the park where hikers can observe petroglyphs. You can expect great views of Spruce and Navajo Canyons along the way. Watch for birds of prey! This hike is great for kids. 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.
