Description

Starting at the Knife Edge Trail Parking Area near the northwest corner of the Morefield Campground, climb gently along an old roadbed that once served visitors as the main thoroughfare into Mesa Verde NP.

Near the trail's end, stop at the Montezuma Valley Overlook to enjoy panoramic views of Montezuma Valley and the surrounding countryside before returning the way you came.
