Visitors to Wetherill Mesa have the opportunity to explore cliff dwellings and mesa top sites. A mini-tram takes visitors on a four mile loop of the area with frequent stops made for walking to sites or overlooks.
Wetherill Mesa's Long House, the second largest cliff dwelling in the Park, is entered only through a ranger-guided tour. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the Far View Visitor Center. Step House may be explored on your own while waiting for the mini-tram to take you to Long House, the Badger House Community, and several overlooks. Both Long House and Step House hikes are about a half mile in length, and require climbing stairs and/or ladders. Be sure to allow a full day to visit Wetherill Mesa. Wetherill is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day only.
