Choose from morning or afternoon departure, then meet up with your guide at either an agreed upon meeting point or enjoy convenient pickup at your hotel. Climb in to a 4x4 vehicle and head out of Colorado Springs proper, through the North Cheyenne Canyon, on the way to Pike's Peak. Make a brief stop at Helen Hunt Falls, looming over the town, then join up with the Shortline Railroad Grade. Traverse through two railroad tunnels, ending in photo-worthy vistas and a history lesson about frontier-era Colorado.
Ride through Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City, where early settlers traded goods and founded some of the first buildings in the west. The day's final stop is the Garden of the Gods, a National Historic Landmark and a perfect place to take photos of the red rock formations from your seat in the open-top vehicle.
Return to your original departure point at the end of your tour.
