    Black Canyon

    Another attraction of Southern Colorado is the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The depth and width of that canyon is impressive. A scenic route stretches along the rim with several view points. The park is located maybe two hours west of Great Sand Dunes National Park.

    Play Dirty Colorado ATV Tours
    Colorado ATV Play Dirty Tours starts out at 6200 ft. elevation, in the beautiful Arkansas River valley, also known as the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. We are located on Highway 50, between the spectacular Canon City Royal Gorge Bridge and the turn of the century historic town of Salida, Colorado.

    Minutes after leaving Texas Creek Junction, the mountain trails lead us 3000 ft. above the valley, where the views are absolutely awesome. Traces of pioneer life are all around us. We have many paths and trails to choose from and each is very different. Your personal interest and riding ability will determine which adventure is awaiting you.

    Colorado ATV Play Dirty Tours is the only 4-wheeler company in the region that operates under special permit to guide on beautiful, protected Federal lands.
