Super fun experience! Six of us went so each couple had our own UTV. Devo our guide was awesome. He would explain what’s ahead on each of the trails and gave us the opportunity to switch drivers and switch up the order of the UTVs so we all took turns eating each other’s dust. LOL. He also took lots of pictures for us. The dessert and 4 Peaks Mountain were absolutely spectacular. Highly recommend and well worth the money.

Great experience, Chad is a knowledgeable caring guide. He managed our group of experienced and no experienced riders well. The terrain is rugged and challenging. Anticipate changing weather conditions, as we experienced sun, dropping temperatures, rain, sleet, hail, thunder and lightening! Ending with a gorgeous double rainbow. We would do again if we return to the area!
