The Chiriaco Plateau, is a microclimate of the Colorado Desert (part of the Sonoran Desert) about 1600 feet above sea level east of Indio at the top of the Mecca Hills Conservation Area, and the Orocopia Mountains Wilderness.  This protected area is prime habitat for the endangered Desert Tortoise, and threatened Big Horn Sheep.  I-10 is a massive habitat disturbance for all of the desert wildlife between Joshua Tree National Park, and the Wilderness lands of the Orocopia Mountains.  

We travel slowly through established roads and approved trails to stop at several key points in the Plateau to observe key species like Teddybear Cholla Cactus, Ocotillo forests, Microphyll Woodlands, and honor the ancient geologic earth forces that influenced the mountain terrain close to the San Andreas Fault.

This is not a place to "rip it up" or go faster than 20 miles per hour.  You can find other organizations that offer these exhilerating benefits.  We offer jaw dropping views with enough excitement along the way for a feeling of fresh, safe outdoor wilderness engagement.  Please call if you have questions.  Reservations only.

Note:  Customers may drive with valid driver license and willing to take responsibility for any damages that might happen while driving.  A Human GPS will still be with your group, in another machine for safety and knowledge.
