What do you get when you combine the skills of mountain biking, the fun of a motorcycle, and the stunning beauty of Texas’ expansive landscape? It’s Fat Tire Electric Bike touring.
Powered by environmentally friendly lithium-ion batteries, these all-terrain e-bikes quietly scoot over trails so you can observe elk and other wildlife as you ride. Pick up your speed and tackle rugged terrain at up to 20 miles per hour without pedaling. Their 26-inch fat tires provide excellent stability and a smooth ride through mile-after-mile of scenic wilderness at the cost of $50 for a 1-hour ride.
Head off-property and into the wild on a Ranch Backcountry Tour. Ride along in a Polaris General vehicle with our guide or hop in the driver’s seat with up to three passengers. On the Backcountry Tour, you’ll drive through the Ranch and safari parks. There, you’ll travel back in time as you explore the buildings, scenery, and fixtures of an era long faded into history.
You’ll scale hills and power brush through two 7-mile trails to see our wildlife up close. The backdrop is gorgeous, the pace is moderate, and the exhilaration is unforgettable. The Headquarters offer a variety of Hill Country ATV adventures for you to choose from. Warning: ATV riding can be habit-forming. If you try one adventure, you’ll undoubtedly sign up for more.
Two seaters and four seaters available. Driver: 18+ Passenger: 16+
