The ride treks along paths that were originally used for mule driven ore carts that carried precious minerals to the river.
Awesome Adventures will take you riding on mountain terrain, surrounded by forests of cholla cactus, with towering, multicolored rock formations as the backdrop for this incredibly scenic tour.
Step right into the pages of history, with a walking tour of the Techaticcup Mine. You will venture deep into this rumored haunted gold mine and visit 3 different shafts, one of which drops down over 900 feet. Learn how the hardiest of men labored feverishly looking for GOLD! Chiseling their way through the mountainside inch by inch, with the most primitive of tools and working by candlelight.
The lunch stop at our Old West Town will take you back in time, featuring foundations from one of the original mining camps of the 1800’s. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch under our covered pavilion, listening to the sound of a natural spring that furnishes precious water to the desert wildlife in the area.
