5 Hour Historic Backcountry Tour
Enjoy an exhilarating day in the famous Sonoran desert, off-roading on some of the best trails in the stunning Bradshaw Mountains, located on the northern edge 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 amidst 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!
Your guided Kawasaki Teryx UTV tour begins with a safety operations briefing and test run on our awesome practice course before we take off on 60” ATV/UTV trails which are ideal for adventurous off-roading! You’ll be accompanied by a certified guide with vast knowledge of the plant life, wildlife, history and climate of the area. And while we pride ourselves on our knowledgeable guides, our #1 focus is making sure you feel the rush of soaring over these dirt roller coasters!
Our 5 Hour Historic Backcountry Tour allows a deeper exploration of an area in which the last of the Apache Indian wars were fought. Said to be one of the richest gold-filled mountains in the US, the Bradshaw Mountains are the perfect backdrop for our trek to rediscover the remnants and history of Tip Top, an abandoned ghost mining town settled in 1876 which was, at one point, the largest mining town in central Arizona. Take a step back in time as you visit the stone structures and mines of this once thriving town. Experience a true ghost town, in the middle of the rugged Sonoran wilderness, where few tourists ever go. This is a one-of-a-kind Arizona off-roading adventure that only AZOF guests can enjoy!
