Full description
Explore the extreme northeast corner of Florence, Arizona on board a thrilling All Terrain Vehicle (ATV). Located halfway between Tucson and Phoenix, the Box Canyon and Pinal Mountains make for an ideal day out from both cities.

The dirt trail that will set you blood racing is about 40 miles long, and you will have 3.25 hours to play. Once your guide has equipped you with all necessary safety equipment, and you are comfortable with your 4-wheel bike, head off along dirt trails that twist and turn and bump up and down the Pinal Mountains.

Climb up and over the front range of the mountains while your guide points out Indian petroglyphs left behind by the ancient Native Americans. Another point of interest is an old adobe building that served as a way station for the Butterfield Overland Stage Coach Company during the 1860s. For a short time it also serviced the Pony Express on what was know as the "Butterfield Route."

The real highlight of the tour is Box Canyon. You'll be in the canyon for about 6 miles. Get set for the drama of the middle 3 miles, a slot canyon with walls only about 10-20 feet apart and 900 feet high on both sides!

ATV Tour Through Box Canyon is a Memorable, Fun Experience!

Loved the half-day Box Canyon and Pinal Mountains half-day ATV tour. It was my first time driving an ATV, but it was fun and relatively easy to learn. The guide was helpful and patient. The scenery was spectacular! I went on the 8 am tour which gave me unfettered access to the trail. Most other 4-wheelers were coming in just as we were wrapping up. Go early!

Wife and I had a wonderful time and our guide was awesome.

Glad I called just prior to arriving at the designated meeting spot to find that there were no bathroom facility or portable toilets. Turned around to go back to town to accommodate my wife’s desire to relieve herself before the tour. Portable bathroom at ATV staging area recommend.
