Our group of four hiked with Karen the first week of October into the Pecos Wilderness area. We had a fantastic hike with perfect weather, changing Aspen trees and a trail almost entirely to ourselves. We found Karen to be the perfect guide with vast knowledge of the area and a desire to select the best hike for our group.... More

My hike was with Karen. She planned a route that was great for me. I'm a beginning hiker but I wanted to see as many views as possible. It was a lovely morning. Karen also was a wealth of information about the botany, animal life and history of the mountains. I highly recommend Outspire.

Went on an amazing hike last weekend with Karen. She made the hike so much more informative. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the environs of New Mexico. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and I would recommend Outspire without a moment's hesitation. The pace was perfect, she provided a great lunch, including delicious grapes from her own garden! She also... More

Our girls weekend wouldn't have been complete without a hike and Outspire did an outstanding job. We had a group with varying levels of fitness which can be a challenge. Karen asked lots of questions to make sure she took us on a hike which took into consideration the skills of the entire group. They clearly communicated with us and... More

In June, 4 grandkids (ages 12 - 17) and two grandparents (ages unknown!) enjoyed a great hike in the mountains just outside Santa Fe, NM with Outspire. Our guide was knowledgeable, adaptable and able to handle the different paces of the youngsters and the oldsters, keep up with everyone, keeping safety of all in mind. His hike route was perfect...

Karen was very helpful, not only on our geocaching adventure but also with additional tips and hikes on where to go with our kids. She was a pleasure to be with and very knowledgable.

Cannot say enough positive things about Karen Denison of Outspire Hiking and Snowshoeing. My husband and I called last minute requesting a guided hike for just the two of us. Unlike other outfits, Karen asked questions about our general health, fitness level, interests, allergies, foot gear, goals for the hike- all designed to ensure a safe and enjoyable excursion geared...

My wife and I were vacationing in Santa Fe, and we wanted to take a relatively easy hike high in the mountains - with a guide who could show us the way. My wife found out about Outspire surfing the web, and contacted Karen who responded immediately. She asked us about our hiking experience, and recommended a trail that she... More

My daughter and I were visiting Santa Fe for a week's getaway and wanted to combine exercise with shopping. I had found Karen's site on line and also checked with our hotel about her Outspire company. The hotel highly recommended Karen. After a phone chat with her, we decided on a particular hike which would be suited to our strengths... More

I contacted Karen based on all the positive reviews. Even though it was last minute, she was able to accommodate 3 of us for a sunset hike. She is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. We met her at a convenient location and took 1 vehicle to the start of the hike. During the walk, she told us about the area... More
