Old West High Country 4X4 Jeep Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Our High Country Tour is the heart of Colorado Adventure. Since 1890 explorers have traversed Pikes Peak in search of Gold and a better life. Your tour follows the Short Line Rail Road Bed that President Teddy Roosevelt once embarked upon proclaiming, “The scenery bankrupted the English language.” Our Forest Service Permits allow us to go off-road, cross streams, explore tunnels and townsites of the Old West. Plan 3-3.5 hours and dress appropriately for this awesome adventure into the Colorado High Country. This tour only runs on weekdays to give you the best possible experience.
  • Explore Colorado Springs’ high-altitude back roads on a 3-hour Jeep tour 
  • Your guide does the driving while you just take in the sights and scenery
  • Spot beaver ponds, colorful wildflowers, jagged mountains, alpine wildlife
  • Hassle-free, convenient round-trip transportation central meeting points
What to Expect
Connect with your guide at a convenient meeting spot and then head out on your tour along the back roads high above Colorado Springs. While your guide navigates the rugged roads as high as 11,200 feet (3,415 meters) above sea level, you’re free to simply relax and enjoy the scenery or snap photos of the dense pine forest, babbling streams, and wide-open meadows. 

As you go, keep your eyes peeled for eagles and deer—and you may even spot a cougar or bear from a distance. After you descend from the mountains in Pike National Forest, your guide returns you to your meeting spot.

For optimum comfort, dress in layers with closed-toe shoes. This tour includes wool blankets on cooler days, bottled water, sodas, and light snacks.
