Guests to the area can hike the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument trails, where, on their hike, they will lay eyes on ancient rock drawings, and cliff dwellings. They can also opt to go hiking in the Dolores River Canyon, which, likes its name suggests, sits beside a flowing river, or view the Anasazi Ruins from the peak point of the Hovenweep National Monument. In Denny Park, guests can treat themselves to a relaxing day under the sun when they go fishing, take a walk, and have a picnic under the covered shelters. Visitors with a passion for studying and knowledge will be more than pleased with a visit to the Cortez Cultural Center, which features a variety of exhibits and programs centered around Native American and Western dance, art, and poetry.
