2017 description: 'If your crew enjoys a lot of program opportunities and fishing cool mountain streams… this trek is a great choice! Feel free to bring your fishing equipment and fish some of the best mountain streams you will ever come across. Start your trek by visiting famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado, along the Santa Fe Trail, before following the river to Olympia and Abreu. Enjoy the Mexican homestead and cantina as you listen to the waters of Rayado Creek rush past your campsite. Help the staff at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission before entering beautiful Rayado Canyon. Your next stop is Fish Camp, where you will discover why Waite Phillips loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Pass through Apache Springs on your way to Bear Canyon for a food pickup and turn at one of two archery ranges. From there, hike to Phillips Junction and fish the Rayado all the way to Porcupine, and on to Clear Creek, where you will hear booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles as you hike into camp. The Rocky Mountain Fur Company will welcome you and let you take target practice with their rifles and tomahawks. Work on a forest restoration project before tackling the mountains. The trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but viewing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain will be an unparalleled reward. After a night at Red Hills, you will be ready to summit Black Mountain and head over to Clarks Fork for branding, chuckwagon dinner, and a cowboy campfire. Enjoy a morning horse ride before fishing the picturesque Cimarroncito Reservoir and touring Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge. Test your rock climbing skills at Cimarroncito before camping at Minette Meadows for the night. Enjoy the view of Baldy Mountain during your last few miles on the trail to the Ute Park Turnaround! Next stop… Base Camp!'
