Meet your group and guide at the time you chose for your tour. Listen to a short safety briefing before you get your helmet, goggles, and gloves. Follow your guide in your easy-to-operate automatic ATV through the mountains and into Box Canyon where the real fun begins.

The trail is about 34 miles (54717 meters) long. Ride through gorgeous areas of the canyon stopping at several spots for picture opportunities. See an old adobe building that used to serve as a way station for the Butterfield Overland Stage Coach Company during the 1860s. Pass by an old miners’ building and a post office built in the 1800s. Plus, see historical petroglyphs left over from the ancient Native Americans up close.

This trip really is an adventure. The canyon walls you drive through sometimes reach up to 1500-feet (457-meters) high, and cacti and rocky terrains are everywhere. Your guide is also super experienced to help you through all weather conditions, such as the heat or rain.

Ray was an awesome guide and very knowledgeable. I’m from Austin, TX and booked a trip to disconnect and this experience helped me do exactly that. We stopped for photos, snacks and history along the way. This was the highlight of my vacation and I highly recommend it. Thanks Ray!

Bill was our tour guide and was ready for us when we arrived and still allowed us time to take photos in our gear and on the ATV. He did an excellent job guiding my friend and I on this adventure. He was so patient, fun, and full of knowledge! He had us stop to ensure we had our proper water intake as well as snacks and also gave us history points at certain spots. He showed us the petroglyphs and talked about the post office route back in the day…as well as many other historical moments. He made sure we were safe and would slow down when necessary to make sure we didn’t get lost. My friend and I were the only ones with him so we had top notch personal treatment! It was definitely a great experience!!

Fun for the teenagers

This adventure was perfect for my kids - 15 & 17. 15 yo has a permit and allowed to drive. Box canyon was great, the terrain was enough for first time riders and scenery was peaceful all around. We were very lucky on the tour that we saw some wildlife too - steer hiding in very inconspicuous places and surprised us as we rode past them 3’ away! Javelina, lizards, ram/mountain goat and of course rabbits. For an active family, we enjoyed the desert more on ATVs.
