The trails were cool, I was the only one on the tour and I got to enjoy every part of it. I'll definitely be going back.

My husband and I had an incredible time! Ken and Kathy were great guides, and the tour was beautiful! I would recommend this to anyone looking to escape the city for spectacular views and quality time with loved ones and nature. There were a few times when we tipped over and had to dig ourselves out of snow, but Ken and his employees were super helpful. I recommend asking about the conditions before the ride.

Overall, this was an experience we will never forget! We had a blast!

Great afternoon activity for the family. A nice hour plus drive from North Tahoe through the Tahoe national forest. The site is out in the middle of nowhere but this is a plus. Well maintained equipment and great staff. Did two hours and everyone had a great time. Was able to do the mountain course plus the 5 play areas. Look forward to heading back sometime in the future.

A few weeks ago, we were at a Travel Show and there was a booth about this company and Eco Bike Adventures. When we found ourselves driving up to Reno a few weeks later, we decided to leave one day earlier and check out Explore! Sierra Touring Company.

Explore! Sierra Touring Company is located south of State Route 70 between Portola and Beckwourth, on Calpine-Beckwourth road. If you're driving south from 70, the Explore! Sierra Touring Company ranch is on the right side of the road, a few minutes south of 70. To get to the ranch, you need to drive on a dirt road for two minutes before your arrive at the barn.

When we arrived, the Explore! Sierra Touring Company owner, Ken, was building a feature for a future course. Ken stopped and gave us a tour of the barn area, and then he let us explore the area on our own until our tour time. A few minutes before our tour was scheduled to begin, our tour guide returned from the trails with the group before us.

Ken helped gear us up, with helmets, gloves, eye protection, and a bandana, and then we practiced driving our ATV around a small, circular trail. It's really easy to drive an ATV, so if you've never done it before, you can get the hang of it after two minutes of driving it. Then it was time to go!

Our tour lasted for about 2 hours, and we rode through some flat areas, hilly areas, rocky areas, and forested areas. The tour guide stopped us occasionally to give us a tip on driving the next part of the trail, or to ask if we were doing fine. The views of the valley were gorgeous, especially when we were up on one of the large hills and returning down to the barn. Throughout the tour, there were three "play parks," or terrain parks. These were extremely fun; you could go really fast through them!

When we returned to the barn, we were muddy and wet, but we had thoroughly enjoyed the experience! It's super fun to ride an ATV, and the trails and staff members at Explore! Sierra Touring Company make your experience terrific. The two hours went by super quick!

If you're in the area—whether you're a child or adult, a beginner or expert ATV rider—you will really enjoy the Explore! Sierra Touring Company ATV ride!
