WHERE TO RIDE AND RACE YOUR UTV: POLARIS’ KEEP ON ADVENTURING

TAKE A UTV TOUR IN YOUR AREA WITH POLARIS ADVENTURES

Select Polaris Adventure outfitters are making a comeback as the nation reopens from the Covid-19 lockdown, and Polaris Adventures is launching its “Keep on Adventuring” campaign to support these local businesses across the country. The Polaris Adventure website breaks down active outfitters into Premiere, Guided, Self-Guided and Rental categories with RZR, General, Ranger, Slingshot and snowmobile adventures.

Sedona ATV is one of Polaris Adventures’ premiere outfitters, and we checked out the Red-Rock Adventures last spring. Sedona ATV & Buggy Rentals is at 2740 W. State Route 89A, Sedona, AZ 86336; (928) 204-0000, www.atvsedona.com,
www.adventures.polaris.com. They have 150 units and also have locations near Flagstaff and Phoenix.

Premiere UTV adventures include Red Rock Sedona, which we covered in the October 2019 issue, Rock Pirates in Silverton Colorado, which we will report on soon,  Oregon’s Spinreel to Boxcar, Wickenburg Arizona’s Happy Trails, New Hampshire’s Jericho Mountain State Park and April’s Sugar Shack, South Dakota’s Spearfish Canyon Lodge/Cement Ridge, and California’s Johnson Valley OHV with Lucerne’s Happy Trails.

Beat the heat this summer in the Rocky Mountains or Adirondacks. Rock Pirates in Silverton, Colorado, is one of Polaris Adventures’ Premiere outfitters. Outfitters trade in high-mileage units for fresh ones at least once a year.
Premiere outfitter Rock Pirates guides rides and does rentals servicing the Greater Alpine Loop, one of the most spectacular UTV rides in the USA.

Guided adventures include Zero1 Desert’s ride to the Nevada Pioneer Bar, where we first tested the Turbo S; Colorado’s Bang Canyon and Rabbit Valley with Adrenaline Driven Adventures; Utah’s West Rim Trail, Sand Mountain Adventures, and Zion Sunset with Mad Moose Rentals; Ocotillo’s Painted Gorge and WWII Dune Adventures with San Diego Dune Tours; Minnesota’s ERX Off-Road Experience; New York’s Adirondack ATV Tours; and Oracle Arizona’s Tucson Wash and USFS Rd#4450 with Titan Power Rentals.

Adrenaline Driven Adventures is in Grand Junction, Colorado, and boasts the largest area of public lands with five distinct environments. They do guided rides and rentals and are at 750 1/2 Horizon Drive, Grand Junction, CO 81506; (970) 623-3888; www.adacgj.com.

Beaver Utah’s Old West Ruins and Taylor’s Crag Ride & Climb are conducted by Tucker High Adventure Tours, and there are also guided rides on Hawaii’s Kauai ATV’s waterfall tour, and in Wyoming, Tennessee, West Virginia, New York, and even hunting adventures in Missouri.

Utah has Mad Moose Rentals in the southern part of the state with rides in Sand Hollow State Park and other beautiful areas. Or beat the heat with high-altitude rides in the Beaver and Marysvale areas.

There are also Self-Guided tours in Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Montana, Maui, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Prescott Arizona, South Dakota, Utah, and Virginia. So, even if you don’t own a UTV, you can escape the city chaos and shake off cabin fever in a Polaris General, RZR, RS1, or Ranger in your area, or an area you would like to explore.

Happy Trails in Wickenburg, Arizona, is one of Polaris Adventures’ newest Premiere outfitters, and they can access the AZ Peace Trail and Prescott’s gorgeous mountain trails.
Polaris Adventure Outfitters supply tablets with maps of area trails, so you can choose to guide yourself and explore at your own pace or go for guided rides. This is the area that Happy Trail Powersports Rentals (602-577-5167) in Wickenburg covers.

Here is Polaris Adventure press release on “Keep on Adventuring” with measures taken to ensure safe health:

Even in a world of restrictions, delays and cancellations, adventure remains. After months of no travel, no restaurants, no extended family or friends, select Polaris Adventures locations* are now ready to safely and responsibly welcome customers back to the great outdoors. As restrictions begin to lift, Polaris Adventures is encouraging people to Keep on Adventuring by embracing new experiences close to home.

To support the re-opening of local businesses and provide a helpful guide to discover restaurants, lodging and activities nearby, Polaris Adventures has created an online listing of Things to do Locally utilizing their expansive network of Outfitters across the U.S. This curated collection of businesses and experiences helps bring adventures to life through a searchable database.

“Our Outfitters are the heartbeat of their communities as well as our program,” Gray Rentz said, Polaris Adventures director. “It is our goal to support them through this pandemic and, for those that are ready to ‘Keep on Adventuring’, we are ready and excited to welcome you back!”
