Most of the cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde require a ticket, generally costing $5 per person. This one doesn't. It doesn't have ranger guided tours per se, instead it has rangers posted down in the dwelling to answer questions and make sure the visitors don't do anything stupid or destructive. This site isn't as large as the other cliff sites that are open, but it does have some unique features. It has the remains of an early style pit house one one side, and the remains of a later cliff dwelling in a style more consistent with the other cliff dwellings on the other. Many of the sites on Mesa Verde were abandoned and reused over the centuries, this is the only cliff dwelling that really shows it clearly, however. One tip, you can enter by taking one of two paths, one leads off to the right, the other to the left. If you come in hot weather, go to the right and follow the same trail back out. The trail to the right has shade, the trail to the left is totally exposed to the sun and gets quite hot.
