Our Outfitter


Darrell Stevens is the owner of Colorado Adventure Rentals, LLC. He sold his electrical business, “retired,” and left the Midwest to travel around and explore the country. He was excited to make Almont home, in part because of the great ATV riding in the area. Because of the proximity to great trails and the lack of ATV rentals in the area, he decided to start this company to share his passion with visitors and locals alike. ATVs and snowmobiles are a great way to see places that are otherwise only accessible by foot or on a horse.
