If you’re excited about Rocky Mountain National Park but don’t know how or where to begin your adventures, a guided tour by bike or jeep is a great way to go. Colorado Bicycling Adventures and Green Jeep Tours make having a fun afternoon in the park as easy as picking one of their options—they provide the equipment, show the way and can share lots of expertise and background information about the area!
Colorado Bicycling Adventure’s options are divided into two main categories: downhill and off-road. The downhill routes are recommended if you’re looking for a little fresh air and excitement without strenuous terrain. Available downhill choices include Old Fall River Road and Trail Ridge Road, both of which are known for their inspiring scenery and occasional views of mountain wildlife. Bikers seeking more of a challenge can take the off-road tour of Roosevelt National Forest.
For jeep and off-road vehicle enthusiasts, a trip with Green Jeep Tours can combine your favorite kind of transportation with the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park. As an added bonus, some of their routes also take you to historic destinations, including the Holzwarth Ranch, an example of original dude ranching, which has been officially recognized as a historic site for its significance.
