Ride With Us

Texas Creek is considered the ATV capital of Colorado. Play Dirty tours start out at 6,400 ft. elevation, in the beautiful Arkansas River valley, also known as the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. You can find us between the spectacular Canon City Royal Gorge Bridge and the turn-of-the-century historic town of Salida, Colorado.

Whole family loved it!

John and the rest of staff were awesome! Beautiful and fun for the whole family! Highly recommend! We took our 18, 10 and 4-year old for my husband’s 34th birthday! We were greeted by a friendly man who helped all of us get ready safely and was very knowledgeable about the area! Then John gave us an awesome tour. We can’t wait to go back!

A great family trip

The weather forecast for the day we had booked our ATV tour was for cold rain. A quick phone call and our trip was moved back a day and we had great weather. The people in our group ranged in age from 6 to 68 and we all had a great time. The trail was challenging enough to make the ride fun, the scenery was great, and our guide was entertaining and informative.

A class act

This was my first time on a 4 wheeler. Dave made sure we had a great time but at the same time kept a close eye on me. The tour was exactly what I was hoping for. It was an opportunity to go experience the breathtaking views of Colorado in an adventurous way. This is a great thing to do on the same day as the Royal Gorge Bridge. They aren’t too far from each other.

Play Dirty ATV Royal Gorge Colorado

I and my husband were visiting the area for our 25th Wedding Anniversary last week. We saw the Play Dirty ATV sign at the turnoff next to the Royal Gorge entry, so we called to get more information. There was no wait to get on the 4 wheelers. They gave us challenging fun, with scenic stops along the way! Our guide, Mike, did a great job looking out for us and offered great conversation.

Excellent Service! Awesome Ride!

We did the 6-hour tour and the whole family enjoyed it. We stopped enough times to rest and get some history from our guide along the way. We were also able to switch out drivers so everyone got a chance to drive. We would definitely do this again!

Worth the afternoon stop!

We arrived with no reservations, they took great care of us. We are experienced riders and did not want an 8 person tour eating dust. They gave us a private tour to the top of the mountain and we had an absolute blast. Dirty faces and all! I highly recommend them!
