Mesa Verde Step House

Mesa Verde Step HouseThis cliff dwelling shows evidence of two occupations taking place in one location.

Mesa Verde Step House and Wetherill Mesa are open between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day (the last Sunday in May through the first Monday in September).

Step House is a self-guided cliff dwelling. The 3/4 mile trail is steep (a 100 foot descent and ascent on a winding path). Your time in the site is self-paced so you can enter and exit at your leisure. There is a ranger on duty in the dwelling to answer questions between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (No Fee Required)

Mesa Verde Step House is reached by driving out a 12 mile winding road that leaves the main park road just beyond the Far View Visitor Center parking lot. The steep, winding road follows an historic fire trail for 12 miles. Vehicle length is restricted to 25 feet or less.
