Find Your Next Overland Adventure
Ron Harrington II founded Ridgeback Guide Service in 2017 in order to guide people on Overland adventures in the Northeast and demonstrate the recreational, historic and local-vore opportunities in New England. Our Mission is to provide our clients with a professional, safe, confidence building off-road experience while showcasing the beauty and rustic charm of New England. We guide all around the Northeast, primarily in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.
We can cater your adventure to your needs. Our specialties are group/club trail rides and longer expedition style trips throughout the Northeast. Our state certified, insured guides will ensure your adventure is both challenging and scenic. See Our Group Rides Here.
Our guides have years of outdoor experience, not just in off-road travel. We can help you build a trip you will never forget. Kayaking, fishing, camping, and bird watching are just a few of the opportunities we offer. Let us know what you want to focus on in your next adventure and we will make it happen.

We don’t just eat, sleep, and breath overlanding. We continuously train and practice all our techniques to ensure safety on the trail. And we can help you train as well. Whether it’s basic-advanced driving skills, winching, recovery, vehicle prep; we can teach you how to achieve your adventure goals using current techniques and safety standards. Learn more about Our Trainings Here.
Trail maintenance and environmental stewardship are key pillars to our guiding. We teach and demonstrate Tread Lightly principles on all our Overlanding Adventures.
