Year-round ATV, UTV and sand-buggy tours of the Pine Nut Mountains: Explore the high desert, a landscape studded with twisted junipers and perfumed with the scent of sagebrush. It is big, beautiful, and remote. This is the land of the mustangs; wild horses roaming free since the days of early explorers and travelers. (2 to 6 hr tours)Seasonal ATV tours of the famous Rubicon Trail: Explore the challenges, thrills and history with your guide on arguably the most challenging four-by-four trail in North America. Experience firsthand the reason why it takes even the best of off-road enthusiasts two days to drive the 23 mile trail. (2-6 hour tours)Seasonal Snowmobile Tours of Hope Valley: The Blue Lakes region region just south of Lake Tahoe offers some of the deepest snow pack on the west coast. The 2009-2010 winter snowfall tallied to a monumental 51 feet! Our guided snowmobile tours run from as early as October through late May. (2-6 hr trail and Ultimate (off-trail) tours)

Brad, our "tour guide" was one of the most boring human beings I've ever met in my life. From the canned introduction to the end of the "tour" he exhibited none of the qualities I assumed all human beings possessed, that is a personality. The...More

We had the best time on the snowmobile tour. Brad was a fabulous guide - very knowledgeable about the area and a willing photographer. It was our first time to snowmobile and he made it fun and easy!
