Maybe someone else will be more familiar with places that rent ATVs in or near Steamboat, but I did see Saddleback Ranch in another thread. http://www.saddlebackranch.net/#ATV I saw Hahn's Peak mentioned, too. Many ATV rental companies now have side by side ATVs, and some that hold 4 or even 6, and I believe children are allowed as passengers, but you'd have to check with the companies to find out their policies.

Every ATV rental that I am aware of will require a driver's license to drive the ATV. Some companies will allow kids that age to be passages but Saddleback Ranch only allows riders (including passengers) who are 12 and up. You could check on the age requirements for Hahn's Peak.

We have had multiple friends who have been severely injured on ATVs and so we don't allow the children in our family to ride on adult sized ATVs. You might want to read the info on this website - http://atvsafetynet.org/index.html And this article that mentions the fact that children just don't have the cognitive skills to drive vehicles that weigh so much and go so fast. standard-freeholder.com/2013/05/01/your-heal…

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOP) have adopted formal policies recommending that children under age 16 not drive ATVs.

Hmmm - just on the news tonight. A Weld county woman is probably going to be charged with felony child abuse because her grandchild was injured this weekend while riding an ATV. So, be careful.

A lot of places will rent two person ATVs, but state law actually requires that you be 12 or older in order to ride as a passenger on an ATV.
