Your UTV tour starts from Rock Springs, a community located in Black Canyon City just 45 minutes north of Phoenix. Check in with your guide for a 1-hour safety briefing and training then slip on your helmet, goggles, and gloves before setting off for the Bradshaw Mountains of the Sonoran Desert.

The 3-hour ride aboard a Teryx utility vehicle offers scenic views of the Agua Fria River Valley, and includes plenty of stops to learn about the area from your guide. Hear anecdotes about the Native Americans who once farmed the unforgiving landscape; search for coyotes, bobcats, deer, rabbits, quail, and snakes; and see centuries-old ruins (depending on trail conditions).

Travel past saguaro cacti and deep canyons carved by flash floods in the vast desert terrain. You'll ride off-road over rugged washes and cross creeks.

We spent 3 awesome hours enjoying the Black Canyon in Sedona on ATV/UTV. It was hot but Gino (our guide) helped us cool down and was always making sure that we were safe. The cliffs, creek, and views were exhilarating.More
