Guided Trail Rides


Ride Details

  • High Pines Night Ride: High Pines, Easy, no width restrictions, 30 miles: departs from the Rodeo Grounds outside the blue building great ride to the top of a very scenic view overlooking the Beautiful town of Eagar. The night ride provides a great opportunity for drivers to use their auxiliary lighting and light up the night.
  • Grizzly trail: Advanced Intermediate, no width restrictions, 95+ miles: departing from the Rodeo Grounds outside the blue building. This trail ride is rather long, can be very muddy, has some steep rocky portions, and travels through some of the most scenic areas in this part of the state. A lot of the trail passes through areas where it is common to see elk, deer, antelope, and turkey. The trail begins at the Rodeo Grounds outside the blue building, stopping for fuel and lunch in Alpine, arriving back late afternoon. Ride participants need to be reasonably certain their machines are in good running condition. Some portions of the trail are not easily accessible if it becomes necessary to recover an inoperable machine. Ride participants need to bring, snacks, water/drinks.
  • NashtyNation Ride: Intermediate, no width restrictions, 70+ miles: The ride departs from the Rodeo Grounds outside the blue building, goes to Greer through the beautiful White Mountains, once you get to Greer you will have lunch at Molly Butlers. Make sure to have enough fuel. This is an excellent ride and has some beautiful scenery. This will be a littler faster pace ride.
  • Black River Ride: Easy Intermediate, no width restrictions, 80+ miles: The ride departs from the Rodeo Grounds outside the blue building. The Black River Run will leave the Round Valley Rodeo grounds at an elevation of 7,100 feet and wind its way through the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest with plenty of awesome overlook views, lakes, ponds, creeks and rivers along the way sometimes climbing to around 9,200 feet before winding back down to the Black River where we will have lunch.  We will see all types of native plants, trees and the potential to see local wildlife.  Be sure to bring a light jacket and some type of rain gear because you just never know when it might rain here in the White Mountains. You will need to pack plenty of water & a lunch as this is an 80 mile ride. Most of the roads are nicely grated 35-45 mph roads with a few stretches of slightly rocky terrain that will require us to slow down. There is a 5 mile paved section that runs through town from the Rodeo Grounds to the off highway part of this ride. We will be using Radios for communications.

  • SXS Arizona 100: The best of the White Mountains is included in this 85 plus mile ride it’s about staying on some two track trails through the best of the wilderness. We stay off the main forest roads and really focus on riding through wilderness. There are some Tricky parts so higher vehicles required, maybe some higher speeds. We go past Pratt lake and into the wilderness seeing lots of trees and wildlife eventually ending in Alpine for lunch. After lunch we climb up to around 9600 feet around Pat Knoll and eventually make our way back into town. This is a moderate paced ride with several breaks to see the beautiful landscape. All day ride.

    This is for experienced riders only! There may be some sections where you get some minor damage to the UTV. (Just be aware) Ride is limited to 15 UTVs only.
  • Long Way to Big Lake: mix of rough 2 track and maintained roads through pine and aspen forest. Lunch stop at big lake store. Pack a lunch or grab a microwave burrito from the store. Speed will be kept below 35mph. Slow down past camps and through populated areas. Exceptions will be roads with marked speed limits. 60-80 miles.
  • Molina Night Ride: Will leave and return through the sipe wild life area. Mix of 2 track and maintained gravel roads. This ride stays in lower elevations than the others. We will be in the grass lands and cedars with a stop at Pratt lake. About 40 miles.
  • Richies White Mountain Adventure: This will be a group involved “choose our adventure ride”. Mix of rough 2 track and maintained roads up to 100ish miles. Pack a lunch. Lots we can see. I’ll get us out in the woods and explain route options at the first stop. Each destination we will vote for the next destination.
  • Gray Wolf: Mostly maintained dirt with some rough 2 track right through the heart of Mexican Grey Wolf country to Aker Lake south of Hanagan Meadow. From there we will check out an old homestead nearby. Some very scenic side trips time permitting. 75+ miles.
