2017 description: 'This rugged trek will let your crew hike, shoot, ride, and climb your way into Base Camp via the Tooth of Time! Not long after you begin from Turkey Creek Turnaround, your crew will shoot clay pigeons with shotgun shells they learned to reload at Harlan. The cool hike up Grouse and Sawmill Canyons will let you focus on the wildflowers instead of the heat! At Sawmill, our .30-06 reloading room and shooting range is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trek. Camp at Comanche Peak and enjoy the best sunrise at Philmont from just east of the campsites. Continue on to Comanche Peak and Mt. Phillips. Once on top of Phillips, views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will leave lasting memories for your crew! From there, you'll learn to homestead at remote Crooked Creek. Next, your crew will shoot 3-D archery targets and explore Jicarilla Apache life at Apache Springs. Tour Fish Camp to discover why Waite Phillips enjoyed spending so much time in the backcountry. From there, hike to Beaubien for branding, roping, a chuckwagon dinner, a cowboy campfire, and horse riding down one of the most beautiful canyons the southwest has to offer. Hike over Trail Peak to see the wreckage of a B24 bomber that crashed in 1942. Continue on to Crater Lake where the Continental Tie & Lumber Company will challenge you to climb their spar poles and provide you with an evening of entertainment at their Company Meeting Campfire. The next morning, work on a trail construction project with the Conservation Department. Rock climb and rappel at Miners Park before your last night on the trail at North Fork Urraca. Rest up and prepare for the final challenge… the Tooth of Time!'
