Go-karts lined up ready to race the kids off road track

Our Go-Kart track is closed for the 2023 summer season. Thanks for a great summer!

There’s just something about that taste of freedom and independence that comes when you first get to drive all by yourself. That feeling sticks with you, even as an adult. Share that feeling with your kids!

Every spring, Colorado Backcountry Adventures builds a new, totally different, off-road track at our Columbine base area. Kids will love racing around the track and trying out the obstacles as they get that taste of a true off-road experience.

The Mudhead® 208R is Hammerhead’s off-road go-kart designed specifically for kids. This two-seat-mini RZR/UTV has a 208cc (6.5HP) engine, LED headlines, and can even drive in reverse. The Mudheads® have two bucket seats that are each equipped with three-point safety harnesses. With all disc brakes, and front and rear suspension, you can rest at ease knowing your kids are completely safe.
