Vast river, mountain, and canyon views are highlights of this jeep trip, which travels along the banks of the Colorado River and meanders among scenic trails. Wildlife, including mule deer, elk, and even bear, inhabit this area, so keep your eyes open to spot these mountain creatures in their natural habitats.

Sit back and enjoy a jeep tour along the mighty Colorado River to the Radium State Wildlife Area, where Timberline Tours is the only backcountry jeep service permitted to operate. If wildlife viewing and fishing are your passions, you’ll no doubt enjoy this area, which has one of the highest concentrations of mountain wildlife including massive mule deer, elk, and bighorn sheep–plus the bald eagles and golden eagles that hunt and nest along the river.

No matter what early season jeep tour you choose from the Vail area, you’ll have a friendly and entertaining Timberline Tours guide to jeep-accessible backcountry terrain, wildlife, and history. Our vail jeep trips range from 4-5 hours in length, and they have both morning and afternoon pick-up times from Vail-area accommodations.
