2017 description: 'Start this rugged trek by seeing the first confirmed T-Rex track in the world! From there, be one of the few crews to camp at Campos Canyon, located on the Heck Tract of Ted Turner's Vermejo Park Ranch. You will hike past bizarre rock outcroppings on your way to rock climb and rappel at Dean Cow, before camping at New Dean for the night. Hike to Head of Dean and test your crew skills with initiative games and challenge course events that will encourage your crew to work together. From there spend two nights in historic mining district of Baldy Town. Get your rest and wake up early to climb over Baldy Mountain. Visit French Henry to explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine. Then, take in the view from Copper Park before hiking to Upper Greenwood Canyon for the night. Head northeast into the Valle Vidal Unit of the Carson National Forest to experience the incredible ponderosa pine stands and some of the most heavily populated elk habitat in the southwest. Camp at Iris Park and Ring Place, but be sure to mountain bike at Whiteman Vega and lend a hand on a stream restoration project. Take part in a search and rescue mission with the staff at Seally Canyon before navigating across Beatty Lakes, back onto Philmont property, and up to Horse Canyon Camp for the night. Wake up early and hike to Ponil so you can sign up for Cowboy Action Shooting, before eating a chuckwagon dinner and being entertained by a wonderful cantina show. Enjoy horse rides on your way out of the backcountry!'
