Or we can drive and you relax and enjoy the scenery!
This is not a rip it up adrenaline experience.  We engage with fragile ecosystems to observe and experience connecting with the land, the animals, the plants and each other, with a purpose of peace and preservation of Mother Earth.  COMING Fall 2023 - ELECTRIC 4 seat vehicles!  Clean, Quiet and less impact.
At Desert Stewards, you experience the desert fresh air and wide open scenic beauty while driving and stopping at key ecological spots along the way to our half way destination.  Seeing wildlife depends on time of day, and time of year/season.  We can not guarantee seeing wildlife, but we will!
This roughly 20 mile ride allows you to experience exceptional scenery and fun dirt roads and trails transecting this magestic desert landacape.  This is a chill cruise through the Chiriaco Plateau to get close to nature and explore the ingredible and fragile desert ecosystems and the wildlife, reptiles, and plants that are resiliant and thrive in the desert climate. 
We are on the edge of the San Andreas Fault also, the Continental side, so we see evidence of ancient geologic formations.
