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:
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.”)
Here’s an alternate Wetherill Mesa map, which works much better for printing since it has a white background and is a bit easier to read in my opinion. Click the image to view a full size GIF (90 kb).
Mesa Verde campground map
This is a Morefield Campground map, located just inside the park entrance before the climb up to the ruins. (Thanks to Those Young Guys for the map!) Click the image to view a full size JPG (330 kb).
