What People Are Saying

"My family and I are on a 10,000 mile cross country trip and we decided to stop in Red Cliff, CO on our way back to Sacramento CA for a little small town relaxation. My 10 year old boy was itching to get out into the wilderness and after several hikes, we decided to switch it up and rent some ATV's. We found Colorado Back country Rentals in RED Cliff, CO. The owners Chuck and Mike of CBCR were so friendly and authentic. They treated my boy and I with such courtesy and respect. They went over all the safety points of the machines and were very thorough with the map of the trails. They also explained in depth what to do if we ran into any problems while out on the trail, which made me feel very comfortable as a Dad.

My boy and i set out for three hours and we had the time of our lives! The machines ran absolutely flawlessly, handling any challenge we put them up against.

I asked my boy at the end, if he had a good time and he responded; "We have been around the entire country these past 6 weeks seeing and doing so many incredible things, but this was by far the best adventure of the trip.

Thank you Chuck and Mike, you guys rock!!"

Sincerely,
Hero Dad

"We were more than extremely pleased with not only the level of personal service but the quality of your equipment. Probably most important, you were more interested in our enjoyment and safety than your profit, which in the end actually works in your favor. We will be back before this season is over to enjoy snowmobiling with you again. Thanks for everything."

"My first unguided ATV experience and it was a fantastic one. Mike and Chuck were thorough with our orientation and were adamant about us having a great time. Brand new 2014 Polaris ATVs were awesome. Trail maps were helpful and accurate. I look forward to the next opportunity to visit and I highly recommend to others."
