Trail to Spruce Tree House
Although the walk into Spruce Tree House is probably the "easiest" journey into a cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde, the way is steep and descends 100 feet on a winding path. Total walking distance is 1/2-mile (1km) round trip. The trail is paved and there are no steps or ladders on the entrance trail. Wheelchairs and strollers can be used on the trail. Anyone using a wheelchair will need assistance on the way in and out as the trail does not meet grade requirements.
