The areas in and around Lake Havasu City are home to networks of off-road trails through varying terrain, including sand dunes, canyons, and open desert–everything you could hope to find off-road. Arizona off-roading enthusiasts have lots to choose from, with more than 20 Arizona ATV trails within easy driving distance from town, perfect for action-packed Arizona weekend getaways.

Whatever you have, 4WD truck, dirt bike, sand rail, ATV, UTV, they all equal fun when you’re on the trail. Explore the area at your pace – meander through wildflowers in the spring, scale some heights if you’re into rock crawling, or go full-bore and feel the thrill of picking up speed through open areas off-road. Arizona weather in the fall through spring is ideal for off-roading here, as summer temperatures can reach well over the triple-digit mark.

Several of these adventure-filled Arizona ATV trails will bring you near points of interest such as old mines and abandoned mining towns. While fascinating to explore, these areas can be hazardous. Not all mine shafts are marked, so use caution when riding near mining areas.

Before venturing out, notify someone where you’re going and when you plan to return, and remember to bring the following to keep you safe and comfortable in the desert:

  • Water
  • Hat, sunglasses and sunscreen
  • Cell phone
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight
At the end of the day, it’s a quick drive back to Lake Havasu City, where you can wash off the dust in time for dinner at one of the many great Lake Havasu restaurants.

The Arizona Game & Fish Department provides valuable information regarding off-roading in and around the Lake Havasu City area, including vehicle guides, safety education, off-road safety videos, and options for educational courses for recreational off-road vehicles.
