Among Mesa Verde National Park’s chief attractions are its impressive cliff dwellings, which were constructed during the thirteenth century. Counted among the largest such ancient structures in the Southwest, these classic sites are enjoyed by hundreds and even thousands of visitors each summer day. Offering a considerably less-crowded look at some of the park’s other archaeological resources is the hike to Petroglyph Point. Awaiting hikers at the far end of this loop trail is a panel of exquisite rock art that dates back several hundred years.
