Elise Grandizio

It was on a cross country trip one summer in college that she was first introduced to hiking. Growing up on the sandy beaches of Long Island, the natural beauty of the West -depicted in the desert cactus, snow capped mountains and lush green forests- were just pictures in a book. Criss crossing the coasts from East to West and back again that summer she spent her days backpacking and nights camping under the stars. Returning to school in the fall with vivid memories of endless switchbacks on hiking trails in countless national parks, of traversing the death defying cables on Yosemite’s Half Dome Mountain, of picking up chunks of turquoise amidst the gravel in Kingman Arizona, she vowed to return to explore more of what the United States had to offer....

For the past several years, she has been my inspiration to go exploring.  Elisa researches the trails in advance and is always well prepared for any obstacles that may arise.  The only thing I had to focus on was having fun while enjoying the views and wildlife.  I'm 61 years old and love hiking and seeing new places.   The overall experience with Elisa improves my health and wellbeing!  I would recommend her as a guide for any skill level.  You'll have a blast, I'm sure!

As a guide, she knows all the great spots, hidden treasures and spectacular views. The exciting part is that she isn’t afraid to help you stretch your limits and explore every inch of natures beauty. Even when i thought i couldn’t do it, she helped me see i could. I can’t wait for our next adventure. She is the real deal!

I had the most wonderful hike with Elisa. She intuitively knew my limits, picked the best trail in the area, took the lead and guided us through the most beautiful landscapes. She handled everything, all I needed to do was show up

I recently had the pleasure of going on a hiking tour with Hike Explore Recharge. What an awesome experience! Elisa was a very knowledgeable guide about the area, the history, and fun places along the way. We did several hikes in different areas that showcased the beauty of Arizona. I had many firsts on this trip...first rattlesnake and owl sighting and first sound bowl meditation sessions. Elisa had everything about the trip well planned out. Because it was a difficult time in my life, this trip was just what I needed for body, soul and mind. I look forward to doing another adventurous hiking tour in some new and exciting place in the future with HER!
