Lynx Mountain Guides of Vermont is an outdoor guide service with an emphasis on connection to place-based experiences.

Our primary purposes are to offer clients high quality, professionally-led experiences and foster relationships with the natural & cultural environments we operate within.


Lynx Mountain Guides was established in the Spring of 2016 when the owners, Craig Cimmons and Nicholas Ruschmeyer, came together with a common goal: to create a guide service that helps foster a rich community both in and around the mountains. Craig and Nick have spent years in mountain wilderness settings, and this has taught them to be open to new experiences, and that trusting in the mountains and in the people around you will both help you to grow as a person and enable you to make the world a better place to live. We have set out not only to bring people to beautiful places and show them incredible adventures, but to connect people to the natural world and the communities that we recreate in.
