If you’re looking for a Mesa Verde map, you’ve come to the right place; currently I’ve collected 12 free Mesa Verde National Park maps to view and download. (PDF files and external links will open in a new window.) Here there are some trail maps focusing on specific areas of ruins, as well as a campground and full-park map. You can also browse the best-selling Mesa Verde maps and guidebooks on Amazon.
Mesa Verde map from the park brochure
This is the official Mesa Verde map from the park brochure, showing roads, campgrounds, trails, museums, and all the cliff dwellings. Click the image to view a full size JPG (1.2mb) or download the PDF (4.4 mb).
In case you just wanted to print or save a few sections of the entire Mesa Verde map, I’ve cropped down the big map above into a few specific points of interest:
Here is a Chapin Mesa map (130 kb), which shows a number of the famous sites: Cliff Palace, Spruce Tree House, Balcony House, Mesa Top Loop, and nearby trails like Petroglyph Point and Soda Canyon Overlook.
This is an entrance area map (100 kb), which centers on the Morefield Campground and shows the trails in the area to various view points: Montezuma Valley Overlook, Point Overlook, and the Knife Edge Trail.
Mesa Verde trail maps
The maps below do a nice job of showing an overview of each major point of interest. 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.”)
Mesa Verde campground map
This is a Morefield Campground map (330 kb), located just inside the park entrance before the climb up to the ruins. (Thanks to Those Young Guys for the map!) Services like restrooms and the store are shown.
Mesa Verde lodging map
If you’re visiting Mesa Verde, you’ll want to find a place in Cortez, CO — the nearest major town to the park. A Hotels.com interactive lodging map is to the right, allowing you to see where the options are in Cortez (or move the map if you’d rather stay in a different town). Here I’ve also linked to Expedia’s top-rated Mesa Verde lodging (or see Hotels.com), where you can view photos, read reviews, and compare prices.
