You can either drive or be a passenger with our seasoned adventure tour guide in the luxury of a Can Am side by side UTV.
Our Backcountry adventure tour will take you through the twists and turns of Warner Valley and stop to explore the amazing 190 Million-year-old authentic dinosaur tracks! Then over to see a historic fort from the Black Hawk War. You might even get to see the elusive Red Man Pictograph.
Then we hit the true Backcountry!
You will ride over mountain ranges, thru valleys, washes, and some wide-open spaces and drop down to the Glitter Mine. This is a working Gypsum Mine that only AJAT has a permit to take you to see. The area glistens and shines just like you discovered millions of crystals.
Back over the mountains with many twists, turns, exhilarating whooptie bumps and fantastic scenery to drop down to Little Black Mountain to take in hundreds of ancient petroglyphs.
