Aspen Snowmass Backcountry Jeep Tours

May - October

Gold Hill Tour

One of our most popular Colorado jeep tours, this tour travels up the backside of Aspen Mountain, traversing through verdant meadows and Blue Spruce forests. Once on top, we skirt along the crest of Gold Hill Ridge, affording fantastic views of the Continental Divide on the one side, and the Montezuma Basin area on the other. Finally, we head back down through Little Annie Basin, past old mines and cabins dating back to Aspen's earliest days. Wildflowers are in abundance and there is ample opportunity for picture taking and strolling. A refreshing snack will be served along the way.
