JEEP TOUR - High Country
US$129.00
Overview
On this exciting Jeep tour from Colorado Springs, let a guide do the driving on windy back roads while you sit back and enjoy the scenery, from wildflower-dotted meadows to thick evergreen forest. Ideal for adventurers who want a remote backcountry experience, this tour brings you 11,200 feet (3,415 meters) above sea level, with your guide pointing out some of the prettiest views of the Rocky Mountains surrounding Colorado Springs.
What to Expect

Connect with your guide at a convenient meeting spot, or get picked up at your hotel (select properties), and then head out on your 3-hour 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.

Not as advertised

The marketing makes it seem like you will be on a one of a kind jeep activity with lots of diverse experiences. We basically just drove up a mountain road for a while with a few stops. There were old guys with Buicks travelling the...More

A relaxing and fun way to tour high country!

This was a fun way to tour the mountains. The jeep picked us up at our hotel and we rode a dirt road that used to be the shortline railroad between Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek. This was definitely something I would not do in...More

Not Extreme, but lots of Good History

The tour we took was the high country extreme tour. It was an extra hour and was supposed to be a bumpier ride. Also, their website advertised going up the Forbidden Trail. Apparently, the Forbidden Trail has been closed for a while. The Jeep Tour...More

Personally I would not take a 2-5 year old child on the high country jeep tour even if I had a car seat. While the 3.5 hour ride is beautiful, most of the ride was on uneven and often unpaved roads. The ride was very... More
