Jeep Trails and Rails

Gear up for one of the most unique experiences in Colorado, climb aboard for the Jeep Trails and Rails today.

All aboard for the Rail and Jeep experience! Join us for a day of riding the scenic and historic Royal Gorge Route Railroad and Colorado off road Jeeping. The trip begins at 8:30 a.m. at our Cañon City office. After a short ride to the Royal Gorge Route’s train depot, you’ll forgo waiting in line as we escort you onto the train to begin your 24-mile round trip journey through the 1,100-foot-deep Royal Gorge alongside the raging Arkansas River. Throughout the trip, you’ll have the opportunity to observe Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer, and flora native to the gorge. This unique Colorado Jeep Trails and Rails adventure is a chance to combine Fremont County’s only guided Jeep experience with a slice of Rocky Mountain railroad history. You can customize the Royal Gorge train ride to suit your budget. Choose the coach car with comfortable seats and big windows to take in the spectacular views. Or, upgrade to a dome car with an incredible glass roof that offers unobstructed views of the canyons and river.

We will be waiting at the depot when your Royal Gorge Route trip ends to take you back to Colorado Jeep Tours’ headquarters for a delicious picnic style buffet lunch at our very own “Eddy Out Cafe.” After lunch, your Colorado Jeep Tour adventure begins. You can choose from our history filled Red Canyon tour which takes you through bright red towering spires and monoliths sculpted by the erosion of the fountain formation, a layer of sedimentary rock made famous by beautiful, well known areas like Red Rocks Amphitheater, Garden of the Gods, and Morrison Colorado or the scenic Royal Gorge Loop that crosses the historic Royal Gorge Bridge and explores the beautiful overlooks and steep drop offs into the roaring Arkansas River.
