Located in the Majestic 4 corners area
Come experience a trip back into time and witness a special Native American interpretation of the culturally diverse homelands of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe. Spend time in our incomparable Ute Mountain Tribal Park with one of our knowledgeable Native American Ute tour guides. Guides interpret Ute Indian History, Ute pictographs, geological land formations, and Ancestral Pueblo*, Petroglyphs, artifacts and dwellings.
The Tribal Park is unique because: Past Ute Leaders wanted to
Present the tribal park to the public as it was found. There are pottery sherds,
tools, historical & prehistoric sites visible, geological land formations,
no running water fountains, no paved trails, hundreds thousands of
visitors are not present in the Tribal Park, Ute Tribal Members are tour guides, and personalized tours are conducted for the Tribal Park visitor.

Note: Pictographs are Native American paintings on rocks whereas petroglyphs are carvings into rock.
