We enjoyed our ATV adventure with Black Bear. It had rained and the tracks were slippery and fun. The guide stopped at several different places to talk about the local trees and animals. It was a great morning.

Our guide was very informative, he explained many things about the vegetation. He was also very understanding and helpful to those of us who had never ridden an ATV before. I highly recommend this tour!
