Beginner / Sightseeing

Minnewawa Truck Trail: Our beginner route is a 15 mile, rugged fire road that climbs about 3000′ and offers panoramic views of San Diego and Mexico.

Beginner / 4×4 Intro

Ridgeline Trail: Our Ridgeline route starts off with a 3000′ climb to the top, then we shift into 4Lo and tackle rugged terrain and obstacles.

Intermediate / Rugged 4×4

Overwatch Trail: The Overwatch route consists of rocky terrain and steep descents, but don’t worry, we start off on the beginner trail first.

Advanced / Rock Crawling

Mocogo Ranch Trail: We’ll skip the scenic views and travel into the backcountry where we crawl up waterfalls and rocks the size of small cars.

You will be met by your guide and given a walk-around of the vehicle you will be driving, including all safety, communications and recovery features.

A trail briefing will precede departure and we will travel to the selected trailhead by way of highways and public streets/access roads.

Once on trail, you will be in communication with your guide and any other vehicles traveling in your party via radios mounted in each vehicle.

There will be scenic stops and other way-points your guide will lead to you to, offering time for photos, rest and refreshments.

We go rain, shine or snow. We take your credit card information at the time of the reservation to uphold the cancellation policy. We run at capacity most of the season and turn away others to hold the space for you.  We reserve the space for you and you in turn agree to pay for the trip.  There will be no charge if we are advised of the cancellation at least eight days prior to the trip, as we are generally able to resell your space to others.

Within 7 days of the trip: We will make our best effort to resell your space to others, however, if we’re unable to do so, you will be charged as though you are on the trip. This includes canceling for last minute medical emergencies.

If you do not show up on the day of your trip: Because we turn away others to hold the space for you, and drivers/guides are prearranged based on your being on the trip, these costs cannot be recouped and therefore, you will be charged as though you are on the trip.  Thank you for understanding.

Please Note: If roads are closed due to weather conditions or other closures, we reserve the right to substitute an alternate route.
