The Coffee Pot Road jeep tour begins and ends at the Timberline Tours boathouse and jeeping hub in Eagle, Colorado, where parking is available for guests. Our expert guides who have extensive local knowledge will pick you here for the start of the jeep tour and then begin driving west to access Coffee Pot Road, which meanders along the Deep Creek confluence with the Colorado River. This winding and narrow gravel road features several scenic pullouts along the way that open up to spectacular views of the Eagle Valley, Gypsum Ponds, and the 2,400-foot-deep canyon carved by Deep Creek.
The Coffee Pot Road jeep tour continues well above Glenwood Canyon and its famed hanging lakes as it travels through meadows where elk herds and wildlife are often sighted. Along the way, you’ll learn more about the unique geology of the White River Uplift and discover the beauty of several natural water sources, including Broken Rib Spring, White Owl Lake, Heart Lake, and Deep Lake, popular fishing destinations. This family-friendly jeep tour includes lunch and takes approximately 6 hours round-trip from the Timberline Tours boathouse and jeeping hub located at 1432 Chambers Avenue, Eagle, Colorado, 81631.
