The Alpine Loop is a 63-mile scenic byway that winds its way through the southern Rockies via two mountain passes; Engineer Pass to the north and Cinnamon Pass to the south. Along the way, there are 14,000 ft. mountains, the historic towns of Lake City, Ouray, and Silverton, stunning alpine scenery, ghost towns, high alpine lakes, and streams. Riders can choose between full-day and half-day self-guided or guided tours.

"We made our reservation with Rock Pirates after seeing the Alpine Loop featured on Destination Polaris. James and Jodi did an excellent job of showing us the Alpine Loop experience in a brief 4hr trip. This is a First Class Operation. Don't let this opportunity pass you by. Thanks Again for the family memories James and Jodi!"
"We consider ourselves a frequent RZR vacation family. We specifically sought out Silverton, CO to do an epic RZR ride with Rock Pirates. We heard great things about Alpine Loop. Our tour guide or pilot car was ran by James. He gave us the time of our lives! Why? He is an encyclopedia of knowledge about various aspects of the area, trees, mines, towns, etc while we rode. He was respectful, and in tune to what we might enjoy. He made our day/trip one our family will enjoy and talk about for a lifetime!"
