In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the White River National Forest is a destination for serenity and adventure. Explore historic Camp Hale, home to the 10th Mountain Army Division winter warfare training in the 1940’s. On Polaris ATVs, venture to old bunkers, shooting ranges, climbing walls and historical foundations in the Pando Valley and choose between guided or unguided tours. Starting at 9,200 feet, the off-road trails can take you to elevation heights of 12,000+ feet. Ride through 55,000+ acres of beautiful alpine meadows with wildflowers and views above tree line, where you will often spot wildlife, on one of the most unique adventure tours in Colorado.
