Description

Overview:

This widely popular tour begins with an exhilarating ride through historic Eldorado Canyon. Your 4-wheel-drive Quad bike traverses rugged trails used today not only by bighorn sheep but formerly designed for mule-driven wagons operated by the pioneers from the not so distant past. Admire the open sky, mountain ridgelines, and the wonderous Colorado River, which leads to the Grand Canyon, before taking in a guided tour of the Tecchaticup mine, the oldest gold & silver mine in Southern Nevada.

Details:

After a safety and operations orientation, both beginners and experienced riders are ready to hit the trail with professional guides. Hop on a late model Quad bike—4-wheel-drive, fully automatic providing for ease of operation—and ride over extreme mountain terrain, surrounded by a forest of cholla cactus and views of towering, colourful rock formations.

Step into the pages of history with a walking tour of the Techatticup Mine, rumoured to be haunted. As part of your guided exploration, you will visit 3 separate mine shafts, one of which drops more than 900 feet (274 metre) down. Learn how the hardiest of men laboured feverishly looking for gold – chiselling through the mountainside inch by inch and working by candlelight – and see foundations from an original mining camp of the 1800s.

Enjoy a delicious picnic-styled lunch and wrap up your excursion with a convenient ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.

My wife and I took the ATV and mine tour with Sherman. He is a very funny young man and we had a lot of fun. I would recommend Awesome Adventures for your off strip fun.
