“Do not fail to stop here for fantastic photos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

This is the highest point in Mesa Verde National Park. You get views of all the surrounding mountains and signs that explain the name and location of each of the peaks.

“GREAT VIEWS OVER THE VALLEY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

And to the Sleeping Ute Mountain which takes a bit of imagination. You have to walk up to the Point (which is the highest in Mesa Verde) from the parking lot. I can't remember there being any steps so it's wheelchair accessible. You can see the mountains of the Rockies which had some snow on them. Quite a sight.

“A treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Stopped on the way up to Far View for breakfast and was treated to a clear 360 degree view of the area. A nice side jaunt on your way to one of the many tours.

Worth a pull off of the road to see the long (long!) views. Paved path up to several observation points.

“Top view from the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Short, easy walk on a paved surface with panorama of everything, and a fire lookout station as an extra.
