It’s odd for an in-profit business to have a mission statement. One would think “profit” is the mission. We believe our type of business and stewardship fit hand in glove and in fact, can’t exist sustainably without the other. Our true goal is to give folks the opportunity to experience their public trail systems in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be able too. Some of our customers are physically disabled, and in some cases, they don’t even know about their public land. Our success relies on a question we ask ourselves daily: How can we tie an extremely fun experience together with safety, education, respect for the natural resource being utilized, and just as importantly, how can we give back?
FOREST OHV TRAIL WORK
Forest stewardship is so important to us. Our highest priority is the improvement, care, and sustainability of our National Forest OHV trail systems. Almost any day of the week, you’ll find us involved in one form or another.
We also work closely with Big Thompson 4 Wheelers who have the adopt-a-Trail for many of the OHV trails in our ranger district.
Check out our blog post about some of the Trail Work we've done.
Check out these organizations who keep your public off road ATV and Jeep trails open and safe. Play your part and pitch in.
DISABLED VET PROGRAM
In 2023 we started working with the Oscar Mike organization. Basically, every month we take a group of wounded combat vets on a free ride.
This has been incredibly rewarding and it's such an honor to meet these guys. They've been through so much and go through so many stuggles every day. Sometimes just getting out of the car and into a side x side is a struggle. These guys are so tough and inspiring.
It's honestly the highlight of the month. A day we all look forward to.
Community and charity is important to us. We're Colorado and Estes Park natives, so we care about our state, our town, and our people.
Currently we do the annual Rotary Club Duck Race, donate to a women's shelter, Oscar Mike, and dozens of 501c3 organizations.
We want to be involved. However, we're not rich. We don't have money to throw away. But, we're always on the lookout for ways we can give back that have a real impact on people. For that, we do our best to dig as deep as we can.
ATV and UTV safety is HUGE for us. Andy (owner) has been an instructor for over a decade.
Truth is, anyone can show someone else how to operate an ATV or UTV, but that doesn't mean they should. Doing it properly is paramount.
Andy has a series on Youtube about how to start and run an ATV / UTV rental business safely and properly. He has also worked with many attornies for ATV injury cases across the United States as an expert witness.

What We've Been Doing Since 2015
We surrounded this entire area with dead trees, some from as far as a mile away.
Between the snow and people who like to shoot and run over signs, we replace markers on a regular basis.
At the top of trail 203 there is a jet plane crash (Airforce T-33) from 1963. The sign telling the story of the crash was stolen. We found the remains of it, fixed it, and re-installed it.
This is a full time job I don't think we'll ever get ahead of, but it's sort of fun to try. This is half the load we walked out with that day. We estimated around 200 LBS of shells.
In 2019 our trail crew member Chris Ashby smelled something burning while he patrolled the trail. Soon he found a wildfire burning off the trail about 400 yards. Between him and a few other ATV riders, they were able to put the majority of it out. Later the fire department and hot shot crew came in to do their magic.
In 2018 a local Jeeper went off trail and rolled his Jeep. It took us a day of hard work, but we were able to hand winch it into our dump trailer and get it off the mountain.
As always, we are fixing signs brought down by wind, snow, and disrespectful drivers.
