Atv and Jeep RentalsThe Gunnison Valley offers some of Colorado’s best off -road trails for Jeeps, ATVs and Dirtbikes. For many, these vehicles are the only way to access the great backcountry of the Rocky Mountains. Accessing the incredible places that surround us would be otherwise impossible unless you have the time and ability to take long horseback rides or multi-day backpacking trips. For those who are adjusting to the altitude or are physically disabled, off-roading can be a great way to access the high country. Off-road vehicles are equally useful to those traveling with young children or older adults. And for the physically active, off-road vehicles allow for quicker access to remote trailheads for hiking, backpacking, fishing and mountain biking. If you bring your own atv or dirtbike, remember to get an OHV permit at the local US Forest Service office: 970-641-0471.
