About

Our story…

Jay left his high profile career in the golf industry to pursue a life’s mission to share the Southern Nevada outdoors with those who visit and live in the area.  After many years of mountaineering and hiking he “pushed all in” Vegas style and since, him and Blair have become the only locally owned guiding company with permits to all parks (National and State) in Southern Nevada.

As trained Wilderness First Responders and Leave No Trace Trainers, we are committed to being the best guides in the area while educating our clients on the proper methods to make hiking fun and enjoyable for the current and future generations.

Jay Childers

Founder, Director of Sustainability

 

Jay started exploring Southern Nevada’s great outdoors in 2003 when he moved to Las Vegas from Reno for college. He has a B.S. in Recreation and Leisure, a Masters of Hospitality from U.N.L.V. and a Masters of Sustainable Tourism from Arizona State University. He has multiple ascents of 14,000 ft. peaks including Mt. Shasta (14.2K), Rainier (14.4K), and Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the continental US) . A few of Jay’s favorite things outside of hiking are spending time with his dogs Cowboy and Rowdy, collecting trucker hats, and planning his next climbing trip.  Jay loves the Cowboys and Jerry Jones.

Favorite Hike:
White Mountain Loop at Red Rock. It’s the perfect distance if you can get away for a few hours and we get to experience and discuss multiple landscapes as we circle White Mountain in the middle of the conservation area.

 


Blair Lee

Owner, Director of Operations

Blair moved to Las Vegas, Nevada 6 years ago from Orlando, Florida. Since this time he has lived and traveled all over the world. He has lived in the islands off the coast of Honduras, also Australia, and even many spots in Florida. He has even backpacked through Europe several times. So far he has been to over 40 plus countries and counting. But only one spot that he has gone to he has decided to call home, Las Vegas, Nevada. He has fallen in love with Red Rock in particular, and since has loved the convenience of Vegas and all the nature it has to offer. With a specialty in hospitality, you are sure to be in good hands.

Favorite Hike:

Calico Tanks at Red Rock. There is nothing better than getting away from Vegas, but also making it to the top and getting a birds eye view of the Strip.
