Robert grew up in the Florida panhandle riding on the neighborhood BMX track, playing in the woods, and swimming competitively. Mtbing was one of many outdoor hobbies through life until it became his main focus when he moved to Tucson in 2014. Robert has degrees and previous careers in Construction Management and as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. His outdoor adventure guiding career began in 2016 with Canyon Ranch and then Southwest Trekking. In 2019, Robert became the new owner of Southwest Trekking, and began the rebirth of the company into Southwest Guided Adventures. Robert views his time with outdoor adventures as a medium for health & wellness and spirituality, and to connect himself with the local culture, community, and natural environment.


Jim is a career nurse with a love of biking. Most of his free time is spent on the trails around Tucson. He has worked as a trail guide for many years and is an expert on the trails. His nursing skills are also a great asset to have on a ride.



Mark loves to lead groups hiking in the desert. He is very knowledgeable about the terrain and history of the area. He is also excellent at helping the group connect with nature using meditation techniques.



Patrick moved to Tucson from France and immediately fell in love with the biking in the area. He is an excellent biker and guide. He also can speak to you in French.



Peak is our acting CHO (Chief Happiness Officer), Frisbee Director, and a true lover of the Sonoran Desert. While herding cattle is in his DNA, he'd rather be guiding the pack on trail runs, hikes, or a MTB ride. Peak started learning the local trails at just 6 months old and pushes everyone to get outside and go find an adventure. ARF!
