We Have Two ATV Tour Options Available

Choose between a 2 hour or 3 hour ATV adventure tour. You can be the driver or the passenger. We accept all experience levels, and train each individual on safety and operation of the ATV before we set out on the trails. An optional trap shoot mid-ride is available, as well as a delicious Santa Maria-Style tri-tip BBQ after your tour!

Each ATV Tour is BYOB! If you are over the age of 21, store your booze in our Barn’s fridges before you hit the trail! When you return, enjoy your cold beverages in our very own “Itchy Back Saloon” (ask us about the story of the name one day)!

  • What a blast!! Ken and Kathy made us feel right at home and made sure we had everything we needed for our atv tour. Great trails, great views and a great time had by me and my 2 boys. Hope to go snowmobiling (if it snows again)! Do yourself a favor and bring your friends out here for a truly great, albeit dirty adventure.

  • The Sierra Touring for the ATV adventure was a blast! The tour guide, Chris, was exceptional. The trails had various terrain and the scenery was beautiful. The location was easy to find being my first time in that area. The gloves and helmets provided are used but they served their purpose. I was with a group of 4 and we would book this adventure again. If you want to have fun and don’t mind a little bit of dust and dirt…..book your reservations here!

  • These guys are great. My girlfriend and I took an ATV tour with them early in the summer and had a great first time ATV experience. Like the previous reviewer mentioned, they have a huge ranch with a purpose-built ATV trail that winds though some flat areas and brush to get you warmed up and then goes up the hills for some awesome views and more technical riding.
