The Western Slope of Colorado, where we at Adrenaline Driven Adventures are lucky enough to call home, is also home to some of the best off-road adventure trails in the nation. While many people will flock to Moab and its surrounding areas or the Mojave Desert of California, we like to think that Grand Junction, Colorado, is right up there with the big dogs with none of the traffic.
1) Mt. Garfield & the Little Book Cliffs
Located just north of Grand Junction, Colorado, Mt. Garfield, and the Little Book Cliffs are sure to amaze everyone in your group. This vast high desert area offers adrenaline-filled roller coaster-style looping hilltops and is within minutes of our headquarters. Grand Junction's North Desert trails are an excellent option for everyone and every skill level. From small roller hills to sandy wash crevasses, you will get to experience some of the steepest trails you could imagine or just get accustomed to off-road riding. However you choose to enjoy them, this vast network of trails will lead you to some of the most breathtaking views within the Grand Valley.
We use this location as our signature ride for a reason! Not only does it offer you the fastest way to enjoy your Polaris RZR, but when you book through us, you also get a professional off-road tour guide and a guaranteed good time.
2) Cactus Park and the Uncompahgre National Forest
Interested in getting the best views possible at a slightly slower pace? The trails of the Cactus Park area are ideal for people looking to enjoy the Western Slope from the best seat in the house. Located in the Uncompahgre National Forest, the mountain terrain consists of narrow, rocky trails with sandy swooping stretches. While spending time on these trails is still a thrill, the terrain requires a steady pace to be safe. Spending time on these trails offers awe-inspiring, larger-than-life views of the Dominguez Canyon and Uncompaghre National Forest.
If you are interested in getting a professional tour of Cactus Park, just let us know! You will have to book at least 24 hrs in advance so we have time to trailer everything you will need to the trail so you can enjoy as much time possible riding.
3) Bangs Canyon and the Tabeguache Trail
Bangs Canyon and the Tabeguache Trail are two of the most famous trail systems this side of the Mississippi. These trails offer an experience comparable to our neighbors in Moab, Utah, without the crowds. Providing rocky terrain for a crawling experience like no other! These trails will give that thrill of flexing out your RZR and climbing surfaces you never thought would be possible.

4 TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR ATV RENTAL
Whether you are going out on your first ATV/UTV ride or a seasoned expert visiting without your own machine, it's always a good idea to know what you can do to have the most fun experience. Check out the following 4 tips to get the most out of your ATV rental so you can be sure you will have the best time possible.
1) Safety First
You hear it a lot, but the reality is we often place this critical factor below fun and adventure. One of the biggest dampers on a day filled with excitement is an accident that could have been avoided or handled better. Taking time to complete a safety training or refresher course is an excellent investment in ensuring that everyone safely and healthily returns home! Safety training may be as simple as taking a guided tour and asking questions. Yet, it could be as advanced as getting your Wilderness First Responder certification if you spend lots of time in remote areas. There are many levels of experience, so don't be afraid to play it safe.
2) Bring The Right Gear
While Adrenaline Drive Adventures provides most of the gear you will need, there are still things that you should have with you to ensure a fun time. The following list is just a starting point:
Remember, this is not comprehensive. Never be afraid to bring something and ask our skilled staff if you should include it on your excursion. It is much better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
3) Familiarize Yourself with the Area
We will help familiarize you with the Western Slope Backcountry (where we operate) and the endless possibilities awaiting you and your group. Whether you want to explore historic mines, experience breathtaking views, or challenge your off-road driving skills, we will help you plan your mission. Of course, we will provide you with:
Even though we do our best to provide you with the most effortless guidelines, having that extra knowledge is always helpful.
4) Wear the Right Clothes
Function or fashion? This age-old question is pretty simple to answer for us, function. Riding ATVs, Dirt bikes, and UTVs is active work and having full range of motion and protection is critical in having fun. You can definitely still look good while doing these activities, at least we think so. Look here for proof. While it might seem simple, this really can make or break a day out on the trails. Wearing clothes that are comfortable and allow movement is crucial to enjoying your day.
