The drive runs 21 miles across mesa-tops and canyons in Mesa Verde National Park to the park museum. Ruins Road, formed by 2 additional 6-mile-long self-guiding loops, explores the cliffed cities and mesa-top remains of the Anasazi culture on Chapin Mesa. Anasazi, a Navajo word meaning “the ancient ones” or “enemy ancestors,” describes a loose aggregate of Indian cultures that once inhabited the Colorado Plateau province in northern New Mexico and Arizona, southern Utah, and southwestern Colorado. Sharp, unfinished edges fill the plateau’s distinctive landscapes. It’s a harsh land of bare-bones sandstone, sliced by deep canyons and arroyos, lorded over by towering mesas and buttes, and traversed by rivers of history and character. Special attractions: Mesa Verde National Park, Far View Visitor Center, Mesa Verde Museum, Far View Ruins, Cedar Tree Tower, Spruce Tree House, Cliff Palace, Balcony House, Long House, Step House, Badger House, pithouse and pueblo ruins, Spruce Canyon and Petroglyph Point trails, panoramic overlooks, hiking, camping, interpretative programs, and guided tours.
