The best way to enjoy Mesa Verde Country is to pick a spot in Cortez, Dolores or Mancos and make it your basecamp for numerous adventures. You could easily stay a week and not see and do everything. Our daytrips and 7-day itineraries are just a few suggestions for how you might spend your time. You can visit spectacular parks and monuments throughout the Four Corners area, venturing out daily on a new adventure and eliminating the wasted time and stress of packing and relocating each day.
A word of caution: some daytrips require traveling in sparsely populated areas. Services available in these areas are noted in the individual descriptions for each daytrip. Please note these suggestions and prepare for your daytrip in Mesa Verde Country accordingly.
