Tour Overview

Take an ATV tour through a magical landscape situated in beautiful Johnson Valley OHV park. King Cougar is a 26-mile trail that covers a wide variety of terrain getting you out in the wide-open California Mojave Desert. Feel the power and performance of a new Polaris RZR while you negotiate the spectacular scenery.

Most riders complete this course within 1.5 hours, so it’s ideal for guests looking for a speedy but satisfying experience. We also offer longer ride experiences for adventures seeking more of an adrenaline rush.

Extremely well-maintained vehicles. Friendly and outgoing service – Ben was awesome! I run Jeeps back east and I can tell you that this is a fantastic way to spend a few hours exploring the desert. You will not be disappointed.
