Mountain Biking

Hundreds of miles of bike trails are calling your name here in the Valley of the Sun—so what are you waiting for? One of the best ways to get an intimate look at the rugged beauty of the Sonoran Desert is from atop a mountain bike, and some of the best people to navigate the trails with you are the guides at Stellar Adventures!

If it’s been awhile since you’ve been on a bike, don’t worry; it’s like… Well, it’s like riding a bike. Before your ride, we’ll talk with you to determine your level of comfort, and will design a ride that is perfectly matched to your experience and expectations. Our guides will help you rediscover your talent and put you at ease by getting you properly set up on your bike. You’ll start off on scenic, easy-to-navigate trails, and you’ll be able to see some of the truly breathtaking sights that only the desert can offer.

If you are a road cyclist or a relatively experienced mountain biker, we’ll hit trails that traverse rugged terrain, rock gardens, and washes. If gnarly, downhill biking is your game, no sweat—we’ve got double black trails designed for expert riders, so you’ll be able to strut your stuff and impress us. Our state-of-the-art mountain bike fleet includes hardtail, full suspension, and premium upgrade options. The guides who take you out on these mountain bike rides have decades of combined experience, and are comfortable guiding riders from every background and experience level. They can help beginners get a handle on the ins and outs of mountain biking, and they can help experts fine-tune their rides. One of our guides is IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association)-certified!

All of our mountain bike packages include a helmet, gloves, snacks, sunscreen, pedal preference options, back packs, and guides who have medical training. Riders of all ages are welcome to join in on this off-road adventure powered by you! Bring your kids along if you like—if they can ride a bike, they can shred with us!

Hiking

Stellar Adventures has offering tours of some of Arizona’s most beautiful desert vistas for 20 years. Most of these tours have taken place on ATVs or in all manner of 4-wheeling vehicles. With the addition of our new hiking tours, we’re excited to be able to slow it down and show you a closer look at the splendor of the Sonoran Desert.

Traversing the desert on foot gives you a chance to glimpse some of the finer points of the landscape. Only by standing at the base of a Saguaro cactus can you truly get a sense of its majesty and its impressive stature. Have you ever eaten a bud from a Cholla cactus? (And did you know that it’s packed with as much calcium as a glass of milk? Score!) Only on the Stellar Adventures hiking tours will you get a chance to see the flora up close and personal. Your Chief Adventurer will also have all manner of fun facts and information about the living plants growing all around you.

Keep your eyes peeled for the fauna as well—the desert is packed with wild animals large and small, and your guide will help you identify the many animals you’re likely to see on your trek. Have your camera ready! The scenery of the Sonoran Desert is breathtaking, and only by hiking can one truly experience the energy that comes out of it.

Our guides will put together a half-day or full-day of hiking to match exactly what you’re in the mood for. We can coordinate a low-key nature walk or a strenuous hike that covers rugged terrain. We love pets, so if you’ve got your dogs with you, bring them along (as long as they are properly leashed and the temperature are suitable—ask if you’re unsure). Want to do a family hike? Our guides can put together an excursion that suits a variety of ages. Our guides carry water, snacks, sunscreen, and all first aid essentials. What are you waiting for? Let’s take a hike!
