Meet the Guide: Crisler Torrence

While most folks can only dream of being paid to play outside, Crisler Torrence has actually managed to turn it into a career. Two days after graduating high school, Crisler followed his love of adventure to Tennessee to work as an Ocoee raft guide. Fast-forward two decades and he’s led commercial hiking, biking and paddling trips all over the country, adding Botanist and Wilderness First Responder to his resumé along the way. As Head Guide at Rock/Creek Adventures, Crisler is stoked to share his know-how and his passion, and to show how much Chattanooga’s backyard has to offer in every season.
