The Prater Ridge Trail in Mesa Verde National Park is a great half-day hike that offers something a little different from what you’d expect in the park. The park is known for its numerous ruins, but you won’t find any on this hike. Instead, the trail climbs high and offers great views of the park and the surrounding area as it travels along Prater Ridge.
