What you'll do

This experience was created to help people visiting Arizona for the first time to learn a little more about the people and places of Arizona before venturing on.
We'll meet at a lightly traveled trailhead in North Phoenix and take a few minutes to get acquainted.
Next, we'll begin our journey on a wide, gently sloped trail with spectacular views of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. We can stay on nice, easy trail, or hike up to a hilltop for a better look at the Valley of the Sun. It’s your choice.
Along the way, feel free to snap all the pictures as you want as I teach you some cool stuff about Arizona geography, landscape and culture.
I’m an open book: ask me anything you’d like. It’s your opportunity to learn more about the Phoenix and Arizona lifestyle from a local.
Sixty minutes later you’ll be on your way to your next stop with a better appreciation for the Grand Canyon State.

I moved to Phoenix in 2012 and have logged thousands of miles exploring the entire state of Arizona. Before publishing a bestselling adventure guide in 2019, I came to realize that in order to truly appreciate how magical Arizona is, a person needs to understand the unique nature of the climate and land. On this walk in the desert, you'll get a crash-course in Arizona landscape, plants and animals. Plus, I'll share tips on unique, must-see places on your travel throughout the state. I'm an open book: ask me all the questions you want.

Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was flexible with the start time and we even went on a longer trail than planned. We learned a lot about the state of Arizona and its wildlife. He gave us great food suggestions too! 100% would recommend.
