The Pioneer 500 is a brilliant concept: Like a full-sized side-by-side, it lets you take a passenger along and has the off-road capability to get you where you need to go. But the Pioneer 500 is a new take on the SxS formula: it’s narrow, fits on tight trails, is fun to drive, and easy to load into a full-size truck bed. But you still get a full-sized list of features, like independent rear suspension, four-wheel drive, and paddle shifting. And that’s just the start. Want to go where no side-by-side can? The Pioneer 500 can get you there and back again, and you’ll have fun doing it.
A new high mounted air intake keeps combustion air high and dry. This is great for crossing through the the mud and water, The RZR is only 50 inches wide, which makes it an excellent choice for an rider who needs a SxS that can negotiate tight trails. The characteristics make the cabin a snug fit also contribute to the RZR ability to negotiate tight terrain. However, once inside, the adjustable steering allows taller riders to squeeze under the steering wheel to stretch out your legs.
The 650 has carved a niche in the 650 class as a torque monster that loves to play. Oh yeah, if you need to pull your house across the yard, it can do that too!The H1 is a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 641cc four-stroke engine designed by Arctic Cat for massive low-end and mid-range torque. The automatic transmission will take riders through or over just about anything without so much as a whimper.
Rio Grande National
The Rio Grande National Forest (NF) is 1.86 million acres
located in southwestern Colorado and remains one of the true undiscovered
jewels of Colorado. The Continental Divide runs for 236 miles along most of the
western border of the Forest. The Forest presents myriad ecosystems; from
7600-ft alpine desert to over 14,300-ft in the majestic Sangre de Cristo Wilderness
on the eastern side.
Creede, Colorado "The Essence of the Rockies"
Creede and Mineral County have so
much to offer. The county consist of 96%
National Forest Lands and features two wilderness
areas-the Weminuche and LaGarita
Wilderness Areas along with the Continental Divide and Colorado Trails. Within the Rio Grande National Forest you will find the unique Wheeler Geologic Area. The Rio Grande River and several streams
offer an unparalleled fly fishing experience.
The Bachelor Historic Loop Tour takes you through Creede's
silver mining district and ghost towns.
Headwaters of the Rio
Grande and San Juan Rivers
Two mighty Southwest rivers rise in Mineral County’s San
Juan Mountains. The Rio Grande, third longest river in the U.S., is well known
as the international border between Texas and Mexico. This great river begins
its flow high on the eastern slopes of the Continental Divide just west of Creede. Collecting water from many rivulets and smaller
streams, including Willow Creek, which flows through downtown Creede, the Rio Grande gathers strength for its 1,800-mile
journey to the Gulf of Mexico.
Trails galore interlace the countryside around Creede and throughout Mineral County. Public lands, which
constitute 95% of the county, provide ample access to Forest Service trails,
many of which carry multi-use designations
Wheeler Geologic Area
The formation of the La Garita and
San Juan mountains began about 30 million years ago. Eruptions from massive
volcanoes, like the Creede Caldera, were followed by
tremendous flows of ash and mud. As the layers of volcanic debris cooled,
crystals and mineral ores collected into veins and pockets to create extensive
mineral fields. This era of mountain building laid down the volcanic tuff that
has become the Wheeler Geologic Area. Water erosion then carved a starkly
impressive landscape of fragile capstones, needles, and spires.
Depending on the season, mule deer, elk, bighorn sheep,
moose and a host of other mammals and birds are abundant. Summer or winter,
deer are a fairly common encounter while elk, moose, and bighorn sheep tend to
migrate into lower valleys as the high country weather cools. Bear, lynx,
cougar, bobcat, marmot, ground squirrels and many other small mammals also are
common to the area.
To access some of the best fishing in the Rockies you need
an all terain vehicle. Using one of our ATV's makes access
easy and you will be guaranteed to leave the crowds behind.
