“Adam Provance is no doubt the best hike guide there is. I’ve been on hundreds of hikes, but my hikes with Adam were far superior. He gives the most interesting and exciting tours. If I had gone hiking without him as my guide, I would have missed too much.”

-Jon A. 

“So grateful to find Adam and his great website, “YourHikeGuide”. He was incredibly beneficial with his knowledge and insights to the area we were planning to hike and explore. He helped with a detailed itinerary, giving phenomenal tips on what to see and do, and how to use our time as effectively as possible. Our trip was unforgettable. I really believe we would have missed so much and wasted valuable vacation time without his helpful direction. His service is a great value!”

  1. Hi

    We will go on hikes in Utah for first time soon. We will take our dog with us. Would you be able to put together a hike guide for us that is pet friendly? We want to see the southern parts that are more desert like–red cliffs, narrow caverns, etc. We will be in Utah for about four days. Will pay for hike guide itinery.

  2. Good evening. I am interested in Mt Rainer and the Wonderland trail. Do you and would guide it? 93 miles. Looks like 9-10 days.

  3. Hello! We are photographers coming in from Denver. We are doing a styled shoot and we are looking at the Valley of fire. We are looking for the fire wave and the swirled sandstones… We are trying to figure out the difficulty of this hike with camera gear and wardrobe. We will be shooting mid-evening on 7/4. We aren’t necessarily looking for a hike, but more so recommendations to get to where we would like to go as quickly as possible. Thoughts? We know it will be blazingly hot so that is our concern in regards to prolonged exposure to the heat. Thank you for your time!

    • Amanda,

      This hike is very easy and do-able with camera equipment. The marked trail to the Fire Wave is the best way to get there. Best of luck!
