Overlook Breathtaking Beauty

Please Note: Per current state recommendations, guests will be required to wear a mask.

The Soda Canyon Overlook Tour will concentrate on the later time period of Ancestral Puebloan occupation. Guests will have the opportunity to see several of the most photographic cliff dwellings as well as engage in a short, relatively easy walk to view the natural landscape of Mesa Verde National Park. The 1.2 mile (round trip) Soda Canyon Overlook walk in the morning gives visitors a chance to view Balcony House, taking advantage of its east facing exposure.
