Half-day guided UTV tour through the Sonoran Desert
Ride off-road through the Bradshaw Mountains
Helmets, goggles, gloves, and bottled water provided
Your UTV tour starts from Rock Springs, a community located in Black Canyon City just 45 minutes north of Phoenix. Check in with your guide for a safety briefing and training then slip on your helmet, goggles, and gloves before setting off for the Bradshaw Mountains of the Sonoran Desert.
The ride aboard a Teryx utility vehicle offers scenic views of the Agua Fria River Valley, and includes plenty of stops to learn about the area from your guide. Hear anecdotes about the Native Americans who once farmed the unforgiving landscape; search for coyotes, bobcats, deer, rabbits, quail, and snakes; and see centuries-old ruins (depending on trail conditions).
Travel past Saguaro cacti and deep canyons carved by flash floods in the vast desert terrain. You'll ride off-road over rugged washes and cross creeks.

A fun time was experienced. The scenic tour was beautiful and enjoyable, due to our very knowledgeable tour guide, well equipped with the appropriate safety gear. Well worth the money.
My husband and I had a really great time and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the desert in bloom and an old copper mine. Xander and his cohort so sorry I can't remember his name were super and explained everything about the place and the ride. I was very apprehensive about the ride since we are OLD, but they took their time with us and made the day really special. Thanks!!!

This was a great way to see the desert and have an off road experience. Our guide Eli was very considerate and knowledgeable, and shared a lot of info on cacti that was interesting. We recommend this tour.
We highly recommend this! We had never driven one of these UTV's before and were surprised at how powerful they are. Our guide Beau was absolutely amazing. He seemed to be enjoying his time on the trail as much as we were. He never made us feel rushed. Thanks Beau!
