REVEL IN THE OZARK'S
The Ozark’s are what define Arkansas as being The Natural State.
Combine that with access to the Mountain Biking capital of the World, a premiere rock climbing and bouldering destination and one of the few remaining undammed rivers in the Lower 48... Not to mention the diverse terrain - Steep hill climbs, rutted tracks, loose rock, and beautiful water crossings. You may never want to leave!
Learn About The Route
When it comes time to tell your friends about the Ozark’s, you'll want to keep it pretty mellow. Who wants the best kept secret in premiere overland destinations to go mainstream? Once you enter the Ozark’s life, steps back a few dozen years. you'll find endless hollers of winding switchbacks, wildlife, streams and the occasional homestead.
We start the evening prior with a pre-trip review of the adventure to come, answering those last-minute questions, distributing an electronic route, and allowing you time to source any additional supplies you may need. Plus, we owe you some SWAG. Exploring Northwest Arkansas is a treat in itself.
Pre-trip meeting based around Bentonville, AR 72712. Final location TBD.

Meet Your Guide
My passion for the Ozarks knows no bounds, and I can't wait to share it with all of you.
I take pride in training vehicle owners in top-notch driving and recovery techniques. My expertise is highly sought after in the offroad industry, working with companies like CAM Mobility, 7P Overland, Overland Expo, MyQuest Adventures, and Rendezvous in the Ozarks. From private courses to public lands, I've provided technical driver training for Tier 1 Special Forces, recreational groups, and Original Equipment Manufacturers, tailoring specialized instruction for each group.
Responsible offroad travel is at the core of my beliefs, as I have 14 years of experience as an outdoor guide, specializing in hiking, biking, and boating. My well-rounded background in outdoor recreation allows me to create a truly engaging and holistic experience for all participants. I am an advocate for LNT and Tread Lightly. Roads are meant to be driven. Not ruined.
The Ozarks hold a special place in my heart, for it's where my passion took root, and where I learned invaluable lessons early in my career. Sharing the beauty and adventure of this region with others is not just a job; it's a calling I wholeheartedly embrace.
