Co budeš dělat

Start your Colorado adventure by watching the sun rise over the iconic plateau of Mesa Verde National Park! (*Please note this tour is not physically inside Mesa Verde NP.)

Hawkins Nature Preserve is 122-acres of protected land with several miles of criss-crossing trails. Our walk is an easy 2 mile walk over sometimes uneven terrain. Afterwards, guests can come back to explore the area on their own! Dogs are welcome, but please ask before you bring Fido! As we walk through the preserve you will see & learn about the unique geology & ecology of southwest Colorado.

We will stop at the canyon's edge to watch the sunrise over the La Plata mountains & Mesa Verde NP. A sunrise hike isn't complete without a treat, so I will make sure to bring your choice of coffee, tea or hot chocolate & a locally baked goodie! After the sun rises we will continue our walk through pinyon-juniper woodlands, stopping along the path to learn about various flora & fauna. We will also stop at a 1,000+ year-old ruin and discuss the lives & culture of the people that built Mesa Verde.

Guests are encouraged to ask questions along the way. As a Cortez-local I know most of history/folklore of the area and am passionate about sharing this special place with others!

Although it's early, this is by far the best way to wake up in the Four Corners! If you need to move the date/time, just let me know!

During the school year I teach high school music in Shiprock, New Mexico on the Northern Navajo reservation. I live in Cortez with my two cats and enjoy hiking, mountain biking and paddle boarding all around the Four Corners!

Although I am not a certified expert in anything but teaching music, I have lots of friends who are archaeologists, biologists and the like. I love history, culture and science - so I've soaked up a lot of information about this area! As a young person I also spent my summers guiding bike & hike tours in southeast Alaska - so I'm experienced as a tour -guide & story-teller. I love meeting and getting to know new people and share my passion and knowledge for the place I live, work & play!

Kde budeš

Hawkins Nature Preserve is a 122-acre preserve on the southern edge of Cortez. Access is FREE & open to the public, but it can be difficult to find the perfect sunrise watching spot if you've never been. After our tour, it's easy to come back to explore the area by yourself. Hawkins is a popular dog-walking area, but please check in with me before your bring your friend! **This tour is NOT in Mesa Verde NP, but has greats views of the plateau.

I second all the other reviews of this experience. Helen was wonderful and this was one of our best experiences ever, with or without Airbnb!!! Don’t miss meeting Helen!

This was one of the unexpected memories I will take home with me. I expected it to be a nice, informative experience, but didn't expect Helen to be such an engaging person. She spoke with great knowledge, but was careful to include each member of the group. She was easy to follow and it was just a lovely way to start our Colorado experience. Got some good pictures too--especially of the purple cacti! Hot coffee and the blueberry scone were really appreciated. Would do again just to see Helen again.

Helen was a great guide. The hike was easy..One can tell she is very familiarwith the area. Thanks to her,. we learned about some legends, flora, history and was able to help us plan the rest of our trip to make the most use of our time. Her hot beverages and baked treats hit the spot.

When I told my husband and father that I signed us up for a 6:30 am hike there was a bit of grumbling, but all that changed when we saw the view! Helen is a wealth of knowledge about the area! Beautiful sunrise, great company, and a yummy pastry!

This was an absolutely delightful experience with vistas and views that I would not have found on my own. Helen also offered great recommendations for the rest of my trip. Cheers to a lovely sunrise!
