La Plata Canyon Jeep Tours from Durango
About this activity
Explore the spectacular La Plata Canyon and its beautiful U-formation created by glaciers on a Colorado jeep tour. Several small waterfalls and cascading rivers follow the rugged Jeep trails in the springtime along with lots of wildlife. On your guided jeep tour, you will see numerous wildflowers, high-alpine meadows and avalanche gullies. Following the La Plata River to La Plata City, an old mining town established in 1875, you’ll discover the remnants of old mining claims. Then, you’ll continue to the peak of Kennebec Pass at 12,000 feet above sea level (also above tree-line). Majestic mountain vistas can be seen all the way to Cortez and Telluride from the top of the pass. High mountain peaks, spruce-fir forests, river valleys, and high alpine-meadows can be observed from a bird’s eye view. The trip returns on the same route so that guests will be sure not to have missed anything.Read more Show less
