A BIT OF EVERYTHING
Sycamore Creek OHV Loop is a 52-mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Fort McDowell, Arizona that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a fun combination of driving-speed dirt roads, wide-open valleys, and challenging climbs. This trailhead is easily our most popular option.
Because of Sycamore Creek's incredible terrain diversity, clients can choose which paths to take during their journey. Some paths are more challenging up-hill climbs while others are casual cruises along a river bed.

Unlike our competitors, we do not limit how long you can ride in hopes of renting the same vehicle to multiple clients on the same day. We give you the entire day from 7 AM to 5 PM.
You can choose to start your trip as late or end it as early as you'd like between 7 AM to 5 PM.
The cutoff time is 5 PM to ensure we have everyone accounted for before the sun begins to set.

Our only limitation is that you follow certain precautions to ensure your safety during your trip.
This is our Show Up & Ride option. Once you make your reservation online or over the phone, all you have to do is show up at the trailhead on the scheduled date and time of your trip. Once you arrive, we will take care of everything else.
