Full description
Enjoy an exciting day in the famous Sonoran desert, off-roading in your single-passenger or 4-person ATV on some of the best trails in the stunning Bradshaw Mountains, located just north of Phoenix. Travel through giant Saguaro cacti, deep canyons carved by flash flooding rains, and cross the Aqua Fria River to experience the wild and vast desert terrain. Our tours create a scenic and educational journey amid some of the most rugged landscapes Arizona has to offer, with opportunities to see abundant desert wildlife such as coyotes, bobcats, deer, rabbits, quail and even rattlesnakes. The guided ATV tour begins approximately 45 minutes north of Phoenix in the Sonoran desert near the Agua Fria River Valley. This area, amidst the beautiful Bradshaw Mountains, is perfect for off-roading. There are creek crossings and places for wash riding, as well as gorgeous views of the Arizona landscape.  You’ll be accompanied by a certified guide with a vast knowledge of the plant life, wildlife, history and climate of the area. You can hear stories about the Native Americans who once farmed, hunted, survived and evolved in this unforgiving desert.

We were originally going to do a guided tour, but it was very busy and chaotic and unorganized, so we ended up going on our own. We had a great time. Trails could have been better marked. Sometimes the trails were narrow and there was on coming riders, so that was a bit difficult. But it was fun. Be prepared to get dirty. Very dusty.

We ended up going out unguided but they gave very good directions back to the ruins. The terrain gets pretty rough in spots so maybe not great for beginners on an ATV or UTV. We had a great time and will definitely consider going back if we visit Sedona again.
