Full description

Explore the extreme northeast corner of Florence, Arizona on board a thrilling 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 your blood racing is about 30 miles long, and you will have 3.25 hours to play. Once your guide has equipped you with safety equipment and received a short training, head off along dirt trails that twist, turn, and bump up and down the Pinal Mountains. Climb up and over the front range of the mountains. At the same time, 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 known 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!

Such a fun & thrilling experience! This was a gift to my sister for her birthday and she loved it. Ray was our guide, he’s fantastic. We had a blast hanging out with him for 3 hours. He made sure we were safe, but having fun and he even brought water and treats for us. Ray stopped and showed us a couple historical landmarks, which was a nice surprise. Make sure you give him and extra big tip if he’s your guide. The best part was going thru the narrow canyon walls and the beautiful views. 10/10 recommend. I will definitely do this again.

This was our first time on ATV's and we all had a blast. We started off a little rocky as our 18 yo daughter was not confident driving the vehicle so our guide, Bill, locked it up to a cacti and she jumped onto the back of her Dad's ATV (problem solved)! Once we figured out the driving situation, we all had an absolutely fabulous time!

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!
