If you’re doing a lot of hiking or exploring elsewhere in the area near Cortez or Durango, you’ll probably want to order a National Geographic Trails Illustrated map that covers Mesa Verde as well as the surrounding national forest land around Durango in the San Juan Mountains. (Select the map on the drop-down menu under “Size.”)
