Our entertaining and informative cowboy guides take you through time along the foothills of Pikes Peak, highlighting scenery and some of Colorado Springs’ most famous historical sights. Attractions include North Cheyenne Canyon, Helen Hunt Falls, the Shortline Railroad and its 100-year-old tunnels, Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, and the spectacular red rock park Garden of the Gods. In our open-air Jeeps, your photo opportunities are unobstructed!!! This tour is approximately 70% paved roads and 30% dirt, and is a fantastic overview of the area!!!

What to Expect
Connect with your tour guide at a convenient meeting spot and then head out on a 2.5-hour small-group tour of some of the Pikes Peak foothills’ key historic and scenic sights.

Our guide, Dusty, was so much fun and very informative. We learned so much about the history of Colorado Springs and the vantage points from the jeep were second to none.
