We make it easy. A short and sweet, small group wintertime ride in the heart of the American Southwest.


  • Backcountry Discovery Routes has paved the way in researching the best off road routes in many regions of the USA. In Arizona we will be following sections 1 and 2 of the AZBDR.
  • You will marvel at the imagery of thousands of enormous saguaro cactus, up to 40 ft. tall, spreading across the open Sonoran desert. You know you are in Arizona.
  • The landscape of this region is more than just desert. You’ll realize this as we gain the summit of Mt. Lemmon and ride the historic Reddington Pass. The mountains of Arizona are part of the contrasts in beauty and elevation.
  • For centuries, mining has contributed to the settling of Arizona. We’ll enjoy learning more about how gold, turquoise, copper, and coal have been a part of Arizona’s boom and bust mining history since the times of the earliest pioneers. 
  • Ride the epic 2 track roads through Mt. Wrightson Wilderness Area. 
  • We’ll get close to Mexico on this one. Look forward to riding scenic 2-track roads along the Mexico border through Coronado National Forest.
  • Experience the best service packed into 4 great riding days. This is the perfect riding adventure at a great value.
  • Limited to ten (10) participants.
