My husband and I had a wonderful day of hiking with our 2 friends and Karen, our Outspire guide. Karen took wonderful care of us and opened our eyes to the beauty of Santa Fe. She pointed out things we would never have seen on our own. Her knowledge of most everything is amazing! She's well versed in science, history,... More

We set up a separate hike for 6 of us with Karen at Outspire. It was a wonderful experience as she pointed out all the things we aimlessly had walked by - including ancient pottery, plant life and an eight foot snake sunning by our path! We went off path and ended at a spectacular canyon overlook for lunch. Heartily... More

I went on a great hike with Karen. It was all very last minute, but Karen was very flexible and patient. Karen knew so much about the plants and geology and animals. I learned so much, and she even gave me some great ideas for other places to go on our trip. I'd love to go snowshoeing with Outspire, as... More

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...
