Travel the Trail of the Ancients at Mesa Verde National Park this Fall

With road travel on the rise this fall, travelers exploring the Four Corners region of the southwest can enjoy some of America’s most popular Scenic Byways when stopping by Mesa Verde National Park, a World Heritage Site located in southwestern Colorado.  

Visitors coming to the park from the northeast will enjoy the San Juan Skyway, known as the "road to the sky," which offers views of the towering 14,000-foot San Juan Mountains and the historic railroads of Durango, Silverton, and Telluride. Roadtrippers driving from the West can travel the Trail of the Ancients, which spans through Utah and Colorado along the popular Four Corners region, the only place in the U.S. where the borders of four states meet.

Mesa Verde’s Far View Lodge is offering the perfect roadcation experience with the Trail of the Ancients package, available for booking through Oct. 19. Priced at $399 for double occupancy, the package includes a two night stay at the Far View Lodge, a private guided tour of the Wetherill Mesa sites and cliff dwellings, and a CD by Native flautist David Nighteagle to enjoy on the ride home.
