Horsetooth Mountain Open Space

I would like to take people from out of town on hikes on public property to share the beauty and amazing trail systems that our city and county has to offer. I am doing it through airbnb to find customers and would like to be paid for my time. We will be very low impact and though there is possibility of needing a rescue it is very very small. We will be using the open space as it is intended and be very respectful as always, picking up trash from others and packing our own out should we have any. Safety is our highest priority. I love hiking in our wonderful open spaces and relish the idea of being able to share it with others. It is certainly not a full time deal for me, it will be very part time, and may actually not even happen, I just think it's a neat service to offer and I think some people from out of town may want to enjoy nature and the outdoors while on their visit but have no idea where to go or what trails are appropriate. I've hiked most all of them so can take them to one best suited to what they are looking for. I'll show them a great time and be an excellent ambassador for Larimer County and the city of Fort Collins. In Chicago I ran an outdoor adventure ministry so am familiar with leading groups on adventures and keeping every body happy and upbeat and safe. Please contact me any time with questions, I would love to be able to do this for the County and City, I believe it is a needed service which is not now available to visitors.
