ATV Tours in Tucson AZ

If you are visiting Tucson, Arizona anytime soon and are interested in spending some fun time in the wild desert, why not go on an ATV (All-terrain Vehicle) tour and make it a memorable experience for you and your companions? Tucson is a really beautiful place, but most of its best sites and scenery cannot be toured by car or bus. That is why if you and your family or friends are planning on visiting this area, you may want to consider going on an ATV tour or even renting an ATV.

About The Butte at Cocoraque Ranch

The Arizona Desert is home to a number of Native American tribes and reservations, and Tucson in particular is home to much of the storied landscape of the Tohono O’odham tribe. Within that landscape lies the awe-inspiring Butte (or ‘Shontok’, in the native language) at Cocoraque Ranch.

During the ancient times of the Huhugam (or Hohokam, to the archaeologists), hundreds of petroglyphs and markings were made on the rocks and boulders of The Butte. These unique petroglyphs include geometric and reticulate designs, as well as early styles of more well-known patterns like the ‘Man in the Maze’ design, which holds deep roots with the Tohono O’odhams. The glyphs at The Butte connect the local tribes with their ancient Hohokam ancestors and offer a unique experience to learn about the origins of the Tohono O’odham.

Our outdoor ATV tours provide the perfect way to allow visitors to explore these ancient artifacts and take in the local landscapes while also enjoying the fun of cruising in Polaris RZR UTVs!

I just wanted to shout out to you a HUGE Thank You, for such an AWESOME afternoon at the Cocoraque Ranch. I was sooooo blown away by the fabulous fun activities you all have out there. My first time on a ATV and knowing I was with the experts I felt safe and well guided. Plus the “icing on the cake” was when you shared those awesome sacred treasures that are on The Butte, I’m still feeling the powerfulness and the feeling of spiritual beauty from all those Petroglyphs. I look forward to bringing Ronald Geronimo with me next time and have him see this extraordinary site.
