When it comes to outdoor adventure, fall is an excellent time to make memories. The crisp mountain air and fewer crowds make for a seamless recreational experience. One of the services we get many questions about at Fall River Village Resort is the nearby ATV rentals around Estes Park. Although there is only one primary rental company, you may wonder what to expect. To make things easier, we put together a quick guide to give you a better understanding.
ATV Rental Safety Considerations
ATV riding offers outdoor excitement, but safety is paramount—especially around mountainous places like Estes Park. Ensure your well-being by wearing appropriate safety gear, including a DOT-approved helmet. It’s also wise to consider enrolling in an ATV safety course, which imparts vital skills and knowledge about local regulations. Your rental service regularly inspects their ATVs, but you should always be mindful and proactive.
Compliance with local laws is essential, as is staying on designated trails and maintaining a safe speed, especially when tackling unfamiliar terrain. Be mindful of weather conditions; they can significantly impact your ride. Keep alcohol and drugs out of the equation when operating an ATV, and equip yourself with essentials like a map and first-aid kit. If you’re supervising young riders, ensure they’re on ATVs suitable for their age. Respect the environment by following ethical practices and be prepared for emergencies with the necessary tools and knowledge. These precautions allow you to fully enjoy the excitement of ATV riding while staying safe.
Recently acquiring Estes Park ATV Rentals and a longstanding regional leader, Backbone Adventures is one of the best in Colorado. Although they offer traditional single-rider ATV rentals, they also provide two, four, and six-person UTVs for those who don’t want to ride solo. In addition to UTV and ATV rentals, they also feature a collection of Jeeps to take wherever you’d like for the day. And if you happen to be visiting this winter, they have a collection of snow machines. Their knowledgeable and attentive staff will give you a rundown of all the best trails, safety precautions, and the best places to grab a bite to eat along the way.
How it Works
According to the Backbone Adventures website, you’ll want to show up 30 minutes early to sign paperwork, go over safety procedures, grab your gear, and choose your trail. ATV and UTV rentals are possible for mornings, afternoons, or full days. Jeeps are rentable all day. You’ll need to have experience pulling a trailer behind the truck they provide. All renters must be at least 23 years old, and drivers must be at least 16 years old.
