Traverse through a magical landscape situated in the 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.

What a great experience! Everything very well organized, vehicles in perfect condition, safety instructions easy and clear, Ben is super-friendly and a great host. We had a fun day, did the Hercules tour, as this was our first experience - and this was great, although we did it on a Saturday we did not meet anyone on the trail, the trails are well chosen! We had a nice small picnic on the way, it was really hot, so do not forget to bring enough water. Next time the full day tour for sure! Highly recommended!

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.

What to Bring

To get the most enjoyment out of your ride, we require you to wear closed toe shoes and highly recommend you wear long pants and long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt. Every person is required to wear a helmet and eye protection. A full face helmet and goggles are provided to borrow during your rental period. A valid driver’s license is required for all drivers, NO EXCEPTIONS! Credit or Debit card required for payment and security deposit. It is highly recommended to also bring a hat, sunblock, sunglasses and additional layers of clothing (during the winter season as it can get chilly outside). We do provide some complimentary water and refreshments, but it’s always a good idea to bring additional water and snacks. Make sure to bring your camera to capture all of the epic moments.
