Both our Side by Side and ATV options give you unparalleled access to the Jackson Hole and Alpine, Wyoming back country.

Our street legal side by sides are a fantastic option for quick access to an extensive network of forest service access roads. With both full and half day options available on our 2 seat and 4 seat side by sides, we have back country options available for the whole family.

Our ATVs are designed to access 50in. or less trail systems at both our Jackson and Alpine locations. Single and Double seat ATVs are available at each location. Out of our Jackson location you must tow the ATVs to the trail system, as they are not street legal. At our Alpine location, you can ride directly out of our shop without towing to a trail head.

What is the difference between a Self-Guided Rental and a Guided Tour?

Self-guided rentals are designed for the more adventurous guest and provide an affordable option to explore the open access forest service roads and back country trail systems. Our Jackson office offers Street Legal 2 seat and 4 seat  Can-Am Side by Sides that you can ride directly out of our office to access the half day and full day trail options. For ATVs out of our Jackson location, towing is required to access the ATV trail systems on ATVs. You can tow the machines with your vehicle or we can provide you with a tow vehicle. You will tow the machines to the trail head, load and unload the equipment and navigate the trail systems with maps and directions provided by our front desk staff. On the way back from your adventure you will refuel the machines at any local gas station and return them to the shop. Out of our Alpine location we have 1/2 day and full day Side by Side and ATV rentals available. Both the ATVs and Side by Sides can be ridden directly out of our shop to access the trail systems or they can come loaded on a trailer and be towed to the trail head. Either location, rental machine, or rental period you choose we have a self-guided adventure ready for you!

Guided tours are a great way to reduce the amount of effort required to tour the back country trail systems in both Jackson Hole and Alpine, Wyoming. Our trained guides will trailer the equipment to and from the trail head, load and unload the machines, provide basic machine instruction, lead you through the trail system, and provide information about the area. Fuel and lunch are provided. Guided tours are a great option for family or group actives. Let the Guides do all the work while you enjoy your ride!

What is an ATV vs. Side by Side?

Pictured first are ATVs, commonly referred to as Four Wheeler’s or Quads. They come in both single and double seat. These have front and rear storage racks and are automatic 4×4 machines with a thumb throttle. They are designed to be ridden on ATV specific trail networks. These are the machines we use for our guided tours in Jackson and Alpine.

Pictured below are our side by sides. They have full roll cages with steering wheels and pedals, like a car. These are automatic 4×4 machines and come in both 2 seat and 4 seat options. We do offer guided tours on our 2 and 4 seat side by side options out of our Alpine location. Our Jackson guided tours are only offered on ATVs. At our Jackson and Alpine offices you can take the side by sides on self guided tours with either a half day or full day option.

You Have to Make Time for This
Renting a side by side from Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals was the best thing I did while in Jackson. The staff was so great both in advance of my trip and while outfitting me the day of the rental. The side by side seemed brand new and was a ton of fun to drive.

We rented 2 side-by-sides to use with our boys in the Gros Ventre area. The staff were very knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant to work with. The vehicles were in good shape and served our family well! We would highly recommend them.

Such a fun way to see nature! We went to the Alpine office because you can drive straight to the trails without trailing the four wheelers…
