This breathtaking jeep tour puts you on the edge of one of Colorado's most picturesque attractions. Look down into the depths of the Royal Gorge as this 3.5 hour off-road tour takes you to high peaks overlooking the south rim of the Royal Gorge, visits historical parts of our community, then drives over America's highest suspension bridge. This trip climbs more than 1,500 vertical feet out of historic Cañon City to the south rim of the world famous Royal Gorge and takes you to an amazing vista on Fremont Peak overlooking the valley. We finish the tour by driving over the Royal Gorge Bridge and Skyline Drive on the way back into Canon City.
Our Half Day Jeep Trails and Train Tour with the Historical Royal Gorge Route Railroad takes you on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad where you can expect to see bald eagles, great blue heron, and bighorn sheep, and flora native to the area.
Lunch is served on the train and is not included in the price of the tour.
This adventure includes everything in the half day trip, lunch and a 4×4 climb to "Overlook Arch." Your afternoon tour will wind its way through the bright red rock of the Fountain Formation which is the same red rock formation that made the Garden of the Gods and Red Rocks Amphitheater famous. This tour will also travel pass the Marsh and Cleveland Quarry sites to see where thousands of dinosaur bones have been excavated over the last 140 years. Your jeep will pass by Indian petroglyphs and the site of Colorado's first oil well on its way back to the base.
