What an awesome experience with some pretty "rocky" terrain. We decided to go with the most extreme trail possible. We had a few times that we wondered if we were off the path, but we weren't. It was an intense/extreme experience. I would defiantly recommend taking food and water with you because it can be a full day adventure. We... More

We rented 2 Razors for 6 hours and had a blast! This is an adventure ride as the terrain is very rocky and bumpy, but that is half the fun!! Make sure your helmet is tight enough, even though I am an adult, I wish I had tried on a child's helmet because my helmet was all over the place.... More

Andy and the staff at Backbone Adventures was very helpful and very friendly. We had the best time of our vacation on those trails. The atv's were in perfect running condition. I thought at first there would be no way they could climb the hills and rocks. They had no problem at all. I would recommend this adventure for anyone... More

This was more challenging than we anticipated. We watched the website videos, etc. but weren't prepared for the medium and advanced courses. We did some of them - couldn't do all - and we met people along the way who made the same comments. So we aren't WIMPY!!! Haha!! If you are really into ATVing, etc. this is definitely for... More

The staff here was very nice and helpful and thoroughly explained our responsibilities for using two ATVs. One of our ATVs ran well but the other had problems. Every time we turn it off we had to rock the thing back-and-forth several times to get it to go into park so we could start it. That was a huge pain... More

At first I thought it was boring and a little lame. Eventually, I was wondering if we were on the trail or not. We brought our lunch and did the all day tour. What a blast. If they leave you wondering if you are on the trail (we were), then it is definitely challenging and max fun. Highly recommended. When... More

The staff here at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn enjoyed a three hour ride. The Backbone Adventure staff were helpful and very polite and most important professional. The safety and enjoyment of their clients was their goal and they achieved it! The trails were varied and fun and the ATV's were awesome!

My family and I went up father's day weekend and had a great time. The equipment was exactly what they said it would be and it ran great. The shop staff helped the kids get helmets and made sure we had maps for everything. When we got up to the location Andy (the owner) and staff were there to greet... More

The maps of the trails they provided were awesome. We pretty well stayed on the easy ones, which weren't as easy as we thought. We come from pretty flat country. But, we had a blast.

What a blast! Our group of 7 (3 couples and another friend) rented 3 quads and 2 Razors from Backbone Adventures. Some had a bit of prior offroad experience, others had none, but we all had a great time. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the ATVs ran great. Andy the owner was working at the trailhead and we... More
