You can rent a scooter for as little as 1 hour. We have 2 hour, 4 hour, 8 hour, and multi day rentals as well. They are outfitted with a rear rack for storing your gear and a tank of gas will take you everywhere you won't to go for the day. You may not think it, but experiencing Estes Park on a Honda Ruckus scooter is seeing our beautiful mountain town and surroundings from a whole new perspective. I promise you'll come back and do it again.

Guys day out
Even if you're dirty after a long day of ATV riding, you can still enjoy a fine dining experience here. The table bread is amazing. My wife love's the salmon and I really like the steak. It's our favorite place in Estes Park.
Get closer on a scooter
Hands down, some of the best pizza you're going eat anywhere! This is REAL New York style pizza. We are serious regulars.
What a view!
My wife and I have eaten here. We love it. Although on the expensive side, the food is amazing and done up by a world class chef. The service is absolutely top notch. This is a great place for couples.
Trail Ridge Road
This is a must if in Estes Park. Alot of times they have live acoustic music. The food is excellent. I love the steak. It's one of my favorites. Great place to have a drink as well.
Old Fall River Road
Nothing fancy. Just the best damn breakfast you're going to get in Estes Park. This is a local favorite.

Dry Gulch --- This 1 hour route takes you on the peaceful ride through Dry Gulch, down Devil's Gulch, and circles back around to Backbone Adventures via the wooded Black Canyon Dr. 

Fish Creek --- Another 1 hour route that takes you along secluded Fish Creek. You then cross Hwy 7 onto Mary's Lake road, which allows you to ride around Mary's Lake. On this route, you'll eventually end up near downtown Estes Park. 

Trail Ridge --- This 2 hour ride takes you into the most beautiful part of Rocky Mountain National Park ($25 entrance fee). Get ready to see some wildlife! I would suggest making it an all day adventure. You can include Bear Lake, which in my opinion is a must. Maybe even get into a little hiking and a picnic lunch at one of the mountain lakes. 

Bear Lake --- 2 hour ride taking you into Rocky Mountain National Park ($25 entrance fee). If you're coming to Estes Park, Bear lake is a must. On a scooter or eBike, it's even more fun. You really get to take in the mountain air and your surroundings. 

Estes Bike Path --- Bicycle path only. Yes, our eBikes are allowed. Give yourself at least an hour for this ride. There is about a 75% chance you're going to run into some elk along the way. It's always nice to stop and take pictures. 

Pole Hill --- This route begins on a normal (easy) dirt mountain road for about a half mile. After that, it turns into an off-road 4x4 trail (open June 15th - Dec 1st). If you're looking to get a little spunky on the scooter or get into some good MTB riding on one of our eBikes, you're gonna love this, plus the views are stunning. Pole Hill is only a 15 minute ride from our shop. 

Little Valley --- This easy dirt mountain road is about a mile long. Toward the end, it dumps you into the Pierson Park 4x4 trail (open June 15th - Dec 1st). Pierson is a little easier than Pole Hill and also has some MTB single track. Scooters won't work out to well on the single track, but the 4x4 road is pretty cool. Lot's of wildlife up there.
