Denver, Golden, Central City and Boulder Tour Details
Denver Foothills Tour
$88.00 per guest 3 hour tour depending on pick up location.
The west side of Denver is rich in scenery and history. Golden, Colorado is the gateway to the West. Red Rocks Park is home to the legendary concert venue, and Look Out Mountain offers a sensational view above it all. Combined, this tour provides a wonderful afternoon on the Mile High City’s west side. (Depending on the concert schedule, guests will be able to explore the amphitheater.)
OMG Off-Road and Mining History Tour
$99.00 per guest 2-3 hr tour
Long before text messaging shortened the phrase, this road was nick named by locals for its perilous journey. Up and over the top to Central City is an adventure (One local even tried to dig a tunnel through the mountain just to avoid the route). Today the road is a bit more tame but none the less beautiful and still full of Colorado Mining History. The route departs Golden and follows the recreation mecca of Clear Creek Canyon on its way to the authentic turn of the century town, Idaho Springs.
This small town is alive and well with plenty of fun buildings to look at. From Idaho Springs we climb the OMG road to the top of the pass. Views of Mount Evans and other Snow Capped Peaks are as stunning as the drop-offs on the side of the road. This county road is maintained so its not too rough on the bottom. The pass gives way to the hills of Gregory Gulch, claimed to be “The richest square mile on earth”.
With this wealth, boomed the most fascinating town ever built at 8,500ft. On the side of a mountain opera houses flourished. Your tour will explore the scenic hillsides above town and the quaint streets of the city. If time permits you may be able to pull a slot machine or grab an ice cream cone in one the local shops before we head back to the big city.
Boulder Switzerland Trail Off-Road
$88.00 per guest 2-3 hours
Home of the Buffs and pure Colorado Adventure, The Switzerland Trail traverses the Front Range Rockies following an old Rail Road Grade. Pine Trees, Aspens and Old West Hideouts populate the area and this tour. The Route follows Boulder Canyon and its beautiful creek. Turn of the century engineering pioneered this route as evidenced by the old tunnels and still operational hydro-electric plant. Side roads reach 9,000′ on Sugar Loaf Mountain where the Switzerland trail begins. The Rail Road moved goods, people, and ore along its length to build the West. A couple old towns along the way and few unique homesteads provide discussion on this leisurely tour. As we descend back into Boulder, stately old homes and warmer temperatures lead the way back to civilization and your hotel.
All Tours Include Water, Snacks, Wool Lap Blankets and FUN. Gratuities are not included.
