Tour Details

Bikers must provide their own bicycles and helmets. You will meet your guide at Far View Lodge and then follow the guide driving your own vehicle 12 miles (19-km) to Wetherill Mesa. 

This Private Tour is available once a day and is recommended for ONLY  those guests who are avid hikers / bikers. There is no transportation in this remote area of the park, so the guest must be prepared to hike a total of 6 miles / bike a total of 10 miles.

Two hikes each at a distance of 1.5 miles (1.2 km) to Step House and to Long House require a 130-foot (40-m) elevation change. Long House is the second largest cliff dwelling, with the one hour tour led by National Park Service Rangers. A level walk through the Badger House Community will examine the early chronological history of the Ancestral Pueblos. This area of the park has low visitation, so the private tour experience is your own. Restrooms and food are available at Wetherill Mesa.

NOTE: Bike rentals are available at Kokopelli Bikes, Cortez, CO.
