We were glad they still allow people to still walk around the cave dwellings. The tour is at a controlled and easy pace with a lot of walking.

This was my favorite tour and cliff dwelling--a nice hike, an interesting tour, a beautiful site, and you get to climb through it. Getting to the Wetherill Mesa starting point requires a 30-40 minute drive up and down a very windy road from the Far...More

There is quite a hike involved to go see this house. Going down is not a big deal. You will take a bit to hike out if you aren't in shape or are not used to the altitude. It is worth the hike, it will...More

Long house is located on Wetherill Mesa fairly far from the other areas making it a good "Day 2" activity. A fun thing was the black bear we saw walking along the road on Wetherill Mesa. It was a cool surprise. I can't guarantee you'll...More

I only went on the Long House tour because the tickets for the Balcony House tour were sold out, but now I'm very happy I did go to Long House! The only downside is that it's a long way from most of the other Mesa...More

This is the longest and most complete of the cliff house tours. It requires a long drive and a one mile hike to the house, but the tour is simply wonderful.

It's a long walk from the meet-up point to the long path down to Long House. This is a large and well preserved site. I've toured this site twice (2011 and 2017). It's a must see!
