California’s famous off-road riding!

Imagine riding trails which are the relics of an era when gold rush boomed and prospectors hauled tons of equipment pulled by oxen, horses or mules though the desert. Seeing the remains of some of Americas largest Gold Mining claims and getting to experience the extremes of the faded dream to strike it rich.

Dirt bike riding in the Mojave Desert!

This tour is designed as a hub tour to allow great flexibility and accommodate different customer’s interests in the remote desert terrain. The tour stays in a small town called Randsburg, California. Also known as 'The Living Ghost Town', Randsburg is rich with mining history and great trails. Located between the Sequoia National Forest and Death Valley, in the center of the Mojave Desert, approximately 3 hours from Los Angeles, Randsburg offers you many interesting places to visit, like old mining camps, mining tunnels, Tufa Towers, a riders monument, native Americans Petroglyphs, to name just a few. All connected through an extensive trails system throughout designated off-road riding areas offering a limitless variety of terrain - rocky hills, sandy washes, steep hill climbs, narrow trails, and wide open desert.
