We were surprised at the access to the ruin we had at this site. The walk is relatively easy (a mile RT). If you come to the park you owe it to yourself to visit. We were able to linger here more than we could on the guided tours.

We didn't take the tour because there were no more tickets available but we self toured using the very well done guide and there was a ranger at the site to answer our questions. Semi-challenging 1 mile trek to the site but worth it.

We almost skipped this 1 mile round trip trail to Step House but decided that while we were visiting Wetherill Mesa we would do this. I am so glad we did, the trail is pretty easy, a little stone stepping to get to it and a little steep on the way back up. This is a self guided tour with a brochure explaining some of the marked interest points. At the pueblo itself there were two rangers who were very helpful giving us additional information, one of them being an archeologist. They showed us some garbage left over from the anasazi in addition to some pottery shards on the floor of the pueblo that we would have otherwise missed. Great short trail!

This was a great short walk to a cliff dwelling. There was a Park Ranger there to answer questions but it was nice to get to it on our own.

This site is on the Weatherill Mesa loop road which you take near the Far View area. There is a parking lot where all motorised vehicles must park and near here is a small cafe and a stand from where the rangers take the guided tours from. You can only hike from this area. The Long house guided tour is a 2 hour tour and 4kms, which we didnt have time for and we were told this site is not as well preserved as others so we just did the short hike to the Step House which is self guided. It is 1 mile (1.6km) but is a 1 hour loop road with a steep descent and ascent of 100feet or 30metres. The ranger is waiting at the site to explain it all to you. We really found this site the BEST as there are 2 villages and 4 pithouses all from different time periods. If you hgave average fitness you will easily do it. MUST see!
