Trail of the Ancients

The trail begins at the Four Corners Monument, travels to the Ute Mountain Tribal Park, then continues to Mesa Verde National Park. From Cortez, you can backtrack to the Anasazi Heritage Center and on to Lowry Pueblo. Hovenweep National Monument is your final stop, but three side trips: Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, Cortez Center, and the Galloping Goose Museum add adventure to your travels.
