Compare 2017 Trek 707 to 2016 Trek 707


This program intense trek follows mountain streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses peaks and mesas across Philmont's South Country. Begin your trek by hiking over Lovers Leap and scaling Urraca Mesa. Test your crew skills on the challenge course at Urraca before being entertained to a great evening campfire. Be sure to get plenty of rest and wake up early to watch the sunrise at Inspiration Point. From there, hike west towards Fowler Mesa, Bonito Canyon, and Lookout Meadow. Keep your voices low as you hike into Lookout Meadow and you might see the small herd of elk that frequent the area. Wake up early to watch the sunrise from the top of the meadow and see why they call it Lookout! From there, scale rugged Lookout Peak and view the twists and turns of Rayado Canyon below. Your next destination is where the canyon divides at Fish Camp. Tour Waite Phillips fishing lodge enroute to Beaubien where you will rope, brand, eat a chuckwagon dinner, and be entertained at a cowboy campfire. The next morning, you'll have the great opportunity to work with Philmont's Conservation Department on a stream restoration or trail maintenance project. From there, enjoy the cool crisp hike down beautiful North Fork Urraca Creek before camping for the night. Be sure to get plenty of rest as your last challenge awaits… the Tooth of Time! Climb the Tooth and hike into Base Camp via the Tooth Ridge Trail as you reflect on your successful journey.
