fixing the ATV rental trail in Estes Park Colorado

FOREST SERVICE ATV TRAIL WORK

At one time Backbone Adventures operated on Bunce School Road. This page is about the work we did there. We hope to continue that work again someday on another trail system. 

Check out our Blog page and the post of the Trail Work we do.

Nothing is more rewarding than being a part of the longevity and improvements of our National Forest trail systems.

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.

Just another day collecting trash from campsites and shooting areas.

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.
