Ute Mountain Tribal Park

For an off-the-beaten-track experience, take a tour of the Ute Mountain Tribal Park on the southern border of Mesa Verde with a Native American Ute guide. To preserve the Ancestral Puebloan architecture, the area was set aside by the Ute Mountain Utes and is accessible to the public only through guided tours. Ute guides interpret the history, dwellings and centuries old rock art decorating the canyon walls.
