The Trail

Not 30 yards from the back door,  Casa Cielo boasts its very own mini ” Phil’s World Biking Trail” .  Indeed, this hiking-biking trail, a circle of approximately 1.3 miles, was designed and built by Phil himself! The trail makes its way through a canyon with occasional running waters and piñon-juniper, scrub oak vegetation,  and then climbs out onto sage filled flats. From here,  the whole of Montezuma Valley opens up in front of you, and provides great views of the Sleeping Ute and famous Mesa Verde.  It then drops down onto a loop that culminates at a point between two canyons where a crude log bench offers a welcome rest and long views down canyon. Then back on the loop home to the casa for a grand view of the entire valley.
