ATV Trails

Bunce and MSV are the trails we operate on and deliver too. The two are connected. This is the only option if renting an ATV from us.

The cool thing is: These are the most popular ATV trails around because of their beauty, wildlife, and diversity. Moose and bear are prevalent, and the water crossings on MSV July-Nov are simply amazing! 

The extreme 203 trail on Bunce has the Air Force jet plane crash site everyone loves to visit. There you can see all the remains.Pony Lake is a popular destination. The moose hang out their multiple times a day.

There is something for everyone. Easy to Extreme trails.

Jeep Trails

Storm Mountain

Hands down, the best views in northern Colorado. Although there are a couple difficult sections, It's worth the trip to the summit, even if you have little experience.

Personally, my favorite place on earth is the Storm Mountain summit. It's a must see.

Be on the lookout for bull moose. There are a couple big ones up there.

From beautiful alpine meadows, stunning vistas, and dark creepy forests, you'll see the best of Colorado on Storm Mountain.

Skill Level - Moderate/difficult

Open - June 15th - December 1st

Time to complete - Full day

Pole Hill / Johnny Park Loop

This is a favorite among our guests. Actually, the loop consists of three trail systems and makes for an unforgettable day.

People like it so much because if you don't like one trail, it's quick and easy to jump on another.

A lot of people elect to hit Old Fall River Road or another easy trail, ending their day with Pole Hill which is only a couple miles outside of downtown Estes Park.

Starting only 5 minutes outside Estes Park, expect to experience a wide variety of terrain and beautiful views.

Skill Level - Moderate

Open - June 15th - December 1st

Time to Complete - Full day

Middle Saint Vrain (MSV)

Although absolutely stunning and a hell of a lot of fun! MSV is very difficult.

The water crossings are abundant and deep. So deep, you may want to take a little swim in Coney Flats. It's a river that has literally just melted off a glacier not more than a couple miles upstream.

There are waterfalls you can hike a few yards too, and the moose and black bear are also abundant here.

Unless you have rock 4 wheeling experience, don't attempt it. Be careful, you can easily break a machine out there.

Skill Level - Difficult

Open - July 1st - November 15th

Time to Complete - Full day

Old Fall River Road

Although you can do this dirt mountain road in a 2 wheel drive car. Alot of people like to do it in a Jeep with the tops and doors off.

It starts near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and dumps you out at the Alpine Visitor's center at over 12,000 feet. It's a must see no matter what in Estes Park.

Along the way there are awesome waterfalls you can hike too, as well as plenty of places to stop and take pictures.

The views simply breath taking.

Skill Level - Easy

Open - July 1st - first snow fall

Time to Complete - 3 hours

Rock Creek

You won't see much but very dense forest and water water runoff along Rock Creek. However, if you reach the top of the trail, there is an amazing view of the Indian Peaks. A wilderness white cap mountain range you can only see from a trail system like this.

Personally, I love it. I like deep, dark forests with huge Spruce trees.

If you're looking to get into 4 wheel drive and want something fairly easy, this is a great trail to couple with Bright Trail.

Skill Level - Easy/moderate

Open - Year Round

Time to Complete - 3 hours

Bright Trail (Taylor Road)

Aside from Old Fall River Road, this is the easiest trail in the area. Super easy, super smooth, but with great views at the top.

If you're up for a secluded hike, there is one up there. I guarantee you won't see another human being. That might sketch you out if you're a city person. Break a leg out there and you won't be found for a week. However, the trail takes you to river at the bottom, and it is an amazing place to hang out.

This trail is close to Johnny Park. Alot of people start out on this easy one and work their way up Johnny and Pole.

Skill Level - Easy

Open - June 15th - November 15th

Time to Complete - 3 hours

Switzerland Trail

This is a great winter time trail system. The views are great and the trails are really fun and smooth.

It's more than Switzerland Trail though. If in the area, you have to check out the odd little mountain town of Goldhill. Stop in at the one business in town and get a coffee.

Gold Lake is another area close by to check out. Although the lake itself is private, you can get up close on the back side. It's beautiful and the moose are very prevalent here.

All in all, it's a great trail system to explore and very secluded.

Skill Level - Easy / moderate

Open - Year-Round

Time to Complete - Full Day

Jeep Rentals

Please note: The Jeep is yours for the day. You can take it anywhere you like.

Some people like to get a cool looking Jeep like ours and just bum around town showing off. Others want to get off road.

We will not tell you where to go, but we will give you some suggestions and provide a navigation tablet with some official trails loaded on it so you won't get lost.

In any case, you're about to have an amazing day. We're excited for you.

There is no better bonding and memory building experience like getting off road with your children, family, and friends.

See you soon..................
