MONTEZUMA COUNTY, Colo. — Effective at sunset on March 25, Mesa Verde will be closed to all park visitors until further notice. This is the state’s second national park to close, Rocky Mountain National Park closed on March 20.
The closure includes the main park road and all loop roads. The park will notify the public when it can resume full operations and provide updates here.
The National Park wants to encourage everyone to take advantage of the many digital tools available to explore Mesa Verde, including our mobile app, podcasts, and videos. These are all available on nps.gov/meve.
The health and safety of visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is the Park’s number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working service-wide with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
