We were at first disappointed that Scott wasn't available to lead our hike. We then discovered that Karen, the original owner of Outspire, was going to be our guide. Her biology background and current work as a volunteer (on her mule) to keep the parks in good shape yielded many interesting stories and commentary along the way. Karen also was... More

We hired Scott from Outspire to take us on a couple of hikes while we vacationed in Santa Fe. I am so glad I did! After sharing a couple of emails with Scott we decided on two hikes: Pecos Wilderness (my new favorite!) and Bandelier National Monument. Scott was: Patient: I was a bit slower on our hike than Scott... More

Scott at Outspire was a wonderful guide! We thoroughly enjoyed our hiking at Bandolier National Monument and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Scott picked us up and drove us to Bandalier. We hiked down first and avoided the crowds. He knew exactly what we were looking for and our skill level. He is very knowledgeable concerning... More

Scott was our guide for Bandelier. The hike in was beautiful and his perspective as a geologist made it particularly informative. I particularly appreciated Scott's assistance beforehand. He suggested many hiking alternatives, even those we could do on our own. We took his excellent advice. When in the Santa Fe area take advantage of this wonderful resource. Scott is very... More

Scott provided a custom tour of Bandolier National Park. He confirmed almost immediately, followed up with lots of info before the hike, picked my wife up at our hotel, provided water and some snacks for the tour. He picked a beautiful trail to hike down to the pueblos and provided a ton of great information. He was kind and courteous... More

I had a great day hiking into Bandelier with Scott. We hiked in from the rim which gave fantastic views of the ruins. After hiking the canyon and seeing the ruins up close, we hiked down to the Upper Falls. Don't miss the falls if you have time! They are beautiful. Scott was a great guide. He brought all provisions... More

I started my Santa Fe visit by hiking Bandelier with Scott. He took an interesting approach, providing a perfect view of the ruins. He combined history, geology and nature facts to make the area come alive. It was the highlight of my trip! I want to return with my teenager to visit other sites with Outspire. Don't do this on...

I highly recommend him for New Mexico hiking- We had tried to hire him about a year ago , and even though he wasn't available, he spent time with me on the phone, suggesting a place to go... More

Called Scott with Outspire Hiking to book a last minute hike. Speaking to Scott on the phone immediately gave me the feeling that he values his customers very well. He asked info about the group and thus was able to suggest a customized outing for us. We ( group of 4 adults and a 10 year old) hiked/ walked in... More

This was followed up with emails. He gave us info on several places we could visit ourselves on days when we... More
