Description

Overview:

This widely popular tour begins with an exhilarating ride through historic Eldorado Canyon. Your 4-wheel-drive ATV 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 ATV—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, colorful rock formations.

Step into the pages of history with a walking tour of the Techatticup Mine, rumored 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 m) down. Learn how the hardiest of men labored feverishly looking for gold—chiseling 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.

It was great and our guide was Sherman. Sherman was extremely knowledgeable and made it easy to quickly learn how to operate the vehicles. Everything was timed very well and the lunch was really good! The mine was also a very cool experience. We were told to bring a change of clothes, but there wasn’t really a need for it and it was a nuisance having a bag. Luckily for us, Sherman offered to carry the bag (another way he went above and beyond). You don’t need to bring water, they provide plenty. Don’t bring a bag or it will be challenging to drive the ATV. Again, thank goodness we had Sherman!
