Rally In The Pines Guided Rides:
Rally In The Pines offers guided rides with a ride leader to beautiful scenic locations. All of the rides are full day rides. Due to a change in the US Forest Service policy, the registration fee for guided rides is slightly higher. Registration for everyone taking guided rides is $109 per adult. This includes up to two guided rides during the rally. (There is no discount for only one day of guided rides.)
Please note: The Rally Lunch Rides are NOT considered guided rides.

Most of the roads and trails in the area have some switchbacks and drop offs. None of the rides in the area are for beginners or for people who may be on medication that makes them dizzy or drowsy or have any other physical handicaps that impair their being able to control their machine at all times. The wearing of helmets is greatly encouraged. Having under body protection on your Side X Side is a very good idea!
This is the Rocky Mountains!
No one 17 years of age or younger is permitted to drive on rides. Pick Your Adventure!

Scenic Rides: These rides are at a slower pace and have many stops along the way for photo opportunities. Great rides for anyone who wants to take in all the beauty of the area.

Skilled Scenic Rides: This is our most popular category. These rides will require driving skill to complete. They are longer rides and many of the roads and trails will have some rocky or rutted areas.

Challenge Rides: Not only a beautiful ride, but there will be places along the way that will require technical driving skills. Experienced riders only please.
