The best vacations include tasty meals, new experiences, and exciting adventures trying things you may not be able to do at home. When you are looking for an outdoor adventure during your Arizona vacation, ATV riding and/or dirt bike riding may be just the ticket! Our wonderful state is known for having perfect weather nearly all year; summers in the Phoenix and Tucson area can get a little hot for outdoor activities that don’t revolve around the pool or lake, but that merely means you will want to go up north to start your ATV or dirt bike adventures! We’ve included a list of places throughout Arizona that are known to be the best in the state for off road fun; all you have to do is enjoy!
Boulders OVH Recreation Area
The Boulders OVH Recreation Area is located just north of Phoenix in the Lake Pleasant region. Known for its beautiful scenery, hiking trails, camping spots, and of course, for being a great place to ride your dirt bikes or ATVs, this spot is one of our favorites—just not in the heat of summer; we tend to go up north for summer riding. Just remember, permits are required and can be obtained at www.servicearizona.com.
Alto Pit OHV Area
Prescott is a favorite summer getaway destination spot where the weather stays cool through most of the summer, and the Alto Pit OHV Area is a choice area for your off-road adventures! The trails along here rate from beginner to intermediate, so everyone in your family should have a great time here without feeling overwhelmed.
Munds Park OHV Trails
Flagstaff is another favorite getaway destination spot that offers cool temps throughout the summer, making the Munds Park OHV Trails a top spot for ATV adventurers from all over the world! Offering about seven miles of easy, yet fun trails, this spot is perfect for those who are less skilled with ATVs.
Santa Rita OHV Trails
The Santa Rita OHV Trails, located in Tucson, are another location that can be extremely fun during the cooler times of the year. There are less places for ATV and dirt bike riding, but the beauty of the area makes it worth the trip!
Tonto National Forest
Perfect for off-road adventures when staying in the Mesa, Tempe, and Scottsdale area, Tonto National Forest offers many miles of trails designed to make your ATV vacation extra-special! Again, unless you are used to the heat, however, this is an area you may want to reserve for your winter vacation adventure!
