Durango Jeep Tour:

Discover the spectacular La Plata Canyon (20 minutes West of Durango) and its beautiful U formation created by glaciers on one of our Colorado jeep tours. Several small waterfalls and cascading rivers follow the rugged jeep trails in the springtime along with lots of wildlife such as marmots, mule deer, elk herds, juncos, kingfishers, turkey vultures, red-tailed hawks and bald eagles.

On our guided jeep tours you will see numerous wildflowers, high-alpine meadows and avalanche gullies. Following the La Plata River (meaning “Silver” in Spanish) to La Plata City, an old mining town established in 1875, you’ll discover the remnants of old mining claims. These include a tall intact chimney left from the crew quarters, the framework of old cabins, and tailing piles from actual mining areas. Then, you’ll continue to the peak of Kennebec Pass at 12,000 feet above sea level (also above tree-line).

Grand mountain vistas can be seen all the way to Cortez and Telluride from the top of the pass! High mountain peaks, river valleys, spruce-fir forests and high alpine-meadows can be observed from a bird’s eye view. The jeep trip returns on the same route so that guests will be sure not to have missed anything on the way up! Kids are extra entertained with our Mild to Wild scavenger hunt. Find the items on the checklist and get some fool’s gold! *Note: Trails are not well maintained and are quite rutted for a bumpy, interesting tour!
