About Us

BackCountry Outfitters has been offering exciting activities for over 50 years! Our staff is committed to making your visit a memorable one. Whether you're up for sightseeing, camping, fishing, or just a leisurely horseback ride, we've got something for everyone to enjoy! We're here year round to bring you the very best Colorado has to offer.

Not only does the Piedra River area offer gorgeous views, but we're surrounded by a bevy of historical attractions. The Mesa Verde Indian Ruins, Chimney Rock Ruins, the Narrow Gauge Railroad, the Pagosa Hot Springs, and Anasazi tribal lands. The San Juan National Forest, Rio Grande National Forest, Weminuche Wilderness, and Piedra Primitive Area feature some of the most beautiful mountain views imaginable. Rely on our knowledge and experience; we'll direct you to the best fishing holes, hiking trails, deer/elk hot spots, and other local secrets!

We are an equal opportunity service provider operating under special use permit in the San Juan National Forest, Weminuche Wilderness and Piedra Primitive Area.

Trips booked after 4/15 require 50% deposit. Balance of fee is due before departure for trip; payable by cashier's check, money order, credit card, or cash. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards for final payment. The terms of this deposit shall commence upon execution and continue until terminated by the client with/without cause by written notice 60 days in advance for the summer trips.
