Our mission is to show every guest a day in the life of a Colorado Jeeper.
We want you to learn not only how to drive, but how to do everything else too – right and responsibly.
Everyday we will do our part to teach, learn, and protect our gift of open space. So we can wheel with our kids, and our kids’ kids.
Park your regular ride and grab the keys to one of our awesome custom built Jeeps.
We will make sure you are comfortable and ready to drive with a quick drivers’ meeting and Jeep orientation. Then we are off to the nearby trailhead, leaving everyone else behind.
Our tours are customized to give you what you want – amazing scenery, heart pumping edge-of-the-mountain action, family adventure, or amazing photo sessions.
Or maybe all of the above! Along the way you will learn the history of the area, many new driving skills and good backcountry habits.
Native Jeeps offers expert-guided, custom Jeep tour adventures on the picturesque mountain roads outside Denver, in Clear Creek County, Colorado.
We are the only permitted Jeep tour company with active operations in Clear Creek County! As such, we offer a truly unique set of expedition tours on breathtaking trails no one else will show you.
At Jeep Tours Colorado by Native Jeeps, our fleet consists of JK and JL Rubicon Unlimited (4-door) models. We lift each Jeep for a purpose – and spec accordingly.
We run 3.5” AEV or 2.5” Teraflex lifts, with either 35” or 37” Nitto tires. Additional upgrades, depending on the vehicle include beefed-up steering components, lights, bumpers, fender flares, and winch.
Our guides are local Coloradans with 20+ years of offroad Jeeping experience. We wake up every morning fired up to hit the trails.
Our team includes jeep mechanics, off-road industry professionals, miners, and farmers. But we all hold in common a passion for adventure, a love of nature and the skill set to navigate the toughest terrain in Clear Creek County.
We work with the local Forest Service to make sure everyone exploring the back-country is safe, to preserve our resources, and protect against trail or stream damage.
Clear Creek County lays on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide, about 3,000 feet above Denver. Clear Creek famously held the gold flakes which first drew miners to the mountains early in 1859.
The Gold Rush prompted thousands to settle in the county, establishing picturesque towns such as Georgetown and Idaho Springs. The silver mines of Silver Plume created a booming miner’s community while Empire was picked for gold.
The county boomed throughout the 1880’s, only to mercilessly fall out of economic favor during the Great Depression. In the 1930’s the population abandoned the mine shafts, creating the ghost towns found throughout the county.
Today, Clear Creek County holds beloved destinations for Denverites looking for a weekend getaway. It is a mecca for outdoor adventure, famous for whitewater rafting tours, zip line tours, and incredible OTV and 4-wheel trails. There are world class hiking and biking trails. Loveland Ski Area attracts day skiers and Georgetown and Idaho Springs offer no shortage of historical structures, family friendly activities and great local eateries.
Information about historic Clear Creek County is available at Historic Idaho Springs and Historic Georgetown.
