Què farem?

Start your Colorado adventure by watching the sun rise over the iconic plateau of Mesa Verde National Park!

Hawkins Nature Preserve is 122-acres of protected land with several miles of criss-crossing trails. Our walk is an easy 2.5 mile walk over sometimes uneven terrain. (*Please note this tour is not physically inside Mesa Verde NP.) 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 sunrises 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!

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!

On aniràs?

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.

Helen was wonderful!! She was a great communicator, thoughtful guide and delightful story teller. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone! I was traveling alone and it was great to have someone to hike with and having grown up visiting this area, I still learned a lot on the hike and wouldn’t have known about this great trail otherwise!

Amazing end to our time near Mesa Verde! Helen was a great guide and we had a wonderful walk at sunrise together learning the history of the area along with facts about local plant and wildlife. She brought delicious coffee and local-made pastries as well which was just the cherry on top. Thank you for a great experience!

This experience was so neat, and Helen was an excellent host! We learned a lot about the culture in the area, and we watched a beautiful sunrise. The snacks and coffee were a really nice added bonus!

We enjoyed hearing about the history, flora, fauna and folklore of the area and general conversation with Helen. The sunrise was beautiful as well as the views. I don't think we would have discovered this place on our own. Helen had good suggestions for other places of interest too. Very enjoyable excursion.
