Your ideal outdoor adventure is as unique as you are. Do not rely on random reviews within websites or top ten lists designed for who knows. Rely on a Local Guide who works with clients every day and knows the area as a professional would. Select your activities above and complete the questionnaire which determines your ideal outdoor adventure. A Local Guide will review the questionnaire and create a custom trip plan so you can experience YOUR ideal version of the outdoors. How do we have the ability to create amazing custom trip plans? We use our network of over 200 professional guides who live in your desired area.
Hiking: We provide you with three trail suggestions. Our Locals are familiar with all the trails in the area and will know if they are for you.
Camping: Our Locals specialize in different types of camping and are prepared to suggest the perfect campsites for:
1) Dispersed Car Camping (No amenities but remote)
2) Backpacking to a dispersed Campsite (No amenities but very remote)
3) Traditional Campground (Picnic Table, Fire Ring, Bathrooms)
4) RV/Trailer Hook Up sites or sites you can get to for dispersed camping
Climbing: We provide three crag suggestions. Why crag suggestions you ask? There is not a lot of information about climbing crags out there. It would be too easy to give classic climbs, instead we match you with a crag that contains your desired routes but also meets other needs such as kid, pet friendly, designed for a crag day, in the shade or not in the shade and so on.
Mountain Biking: We provide you three trail suggestions. Our Locals are soo experienced they typically get you on trail systems and tell you which routes within their to ride. Do you prefer flow, downhill, mellow or all the above? Our Locals know the trail for you.
Off Roading: Do you have a rig, dirt bike, side by side? We have you covered, whether you're looking for a mellow trail to picnic down or if you're yearning for obstacles our Locals have you covered.

I'm generally pretty particular about picking the perfect excursions for my vacations. But sometimes the process is as time consuming as another job. It can be difficult to know if an adventure is the right fit given my abilities, equipment, timeline, and current conditions without being able to communicate with a local directly. Rob and his local guides at GuideGap are professional, meticulous, experienced, and knowledgeable so they can help anyone find the right hike for their needs. Given the amount of time I invested in the past, the quick assistance is well worth the small fees.

As a seasoned climber, I figured I'd try this service and was delighted with the results. GuideGap hooked me up with a mountain guide who first provided some killer suggestions for a couple weekend trips and then I followed up for the camping guides to get the inside scoop on where to stay while exploring new areas. The content was delivered quickly with quality and it's the only way I know to support guides while in-person services are limited. I'll be back for more soon!

Guide gap is a great service!! I just bought a new suv and didn’t know what trails were in my area that I would feel comfortable off roading. My guide picked a great location, made sure it was open and made sure I had a great time. Wonderful group of guides. I def will use them again!!
