Mesa Verde National Park High Point Trip Report

Park Point Lookout

Date: May 25 (?)
Author: Andy Martin

This summit is called Park Point Lookout, and is shown on the park handout map given at the entrance station. It is only a few miles west of the Morfield Campground, and we drove there after picking out a campsite. A parking lot is just 200' from the top, and we all followed the paved (?) path to the top and enjoyed the nice view of distant peaks.

A ground level fire lookout is at the top, which seems appropriate, given fire damage seen along the road on the North Rim drive. I left off a HP list in the brochure box at the trailhead.

The Morfield Campground seemed a bit crowded and costly, reminding me of Tuolumne in Yosemite the previous summer.
