ATV and Off-Road Rentals in Greater Palm Springs

There’s nothing like leaving paved city roads and highways behind for wide-open spaces, sandy washes and endless blue skies. ATV and off-road excursions are the perfect way to explore the farthest reaches of Greater Palm Springs—all you have to do is hop in, grab the steering wheel and go!

Whether you’re a seasoned driver or a newbie to the world of off-roading, you’ll discover something new, and maybe even bizarre, around every dune and narrow canyon. A favorite spot to hit the dirt trails is Ocotillo Wells State Vehicle Recreation Area, home to 85,000 acres of action-packed terrain. The geology here is otherworldly thanks to millennia of tectonic plates moving deep beneath the surface. Where else can you see a 200-foot-tall decomposing mountain, fossilized oyster shells buried into an ancient reef, large gas bubbles rising out of the desert floor, and an oasis fed by natural underground springs? Some places even offer private obstacle courses and practice areas. Bring the whole family and spend the day cruising the sand.
