2017 description: 'This exciting itinerary will enable your crew to explore most all of Philmont's Central and South Country. Begin your trek by camping at one of Philmont's new trail camps named after Waite Phillips original name for Philmont, his Hawkeye Ranch. Your crew will then have the opportunity to work with Philmont's Conservation Department on a new trail construction project near Visto Grande before continuing on to Cimarroncito to test your rock climbing and rappelling skills. Hike up the beautiful North Fork Cimarroncito Creek to Cyphers Mine, where Charlie and his miners will show you a good time. Explore the mine, learn to blacksmith, and be entertained by mining stories at The Stomp. From there, hike to Beaubien over Big Red and Bonito Peak or via rugged Black Mountain if your crew is up for the challenge. At Beaubien, your crew will test their roping skills, learn to brand, cook a chuckwagon dinner, and enjoy a cowboy campfire. Be sure to wake up early on the following morning so your crew has time to see the wreckage of a B-24 Bomber that crashed on top of Trail Peak in 1942. Continue down Fowler Mesa to Aguila to enjoy the view before hiking to Zastrow for the night. See if you can beat the fastest time on the land navigation course and then be treated to Dutch oven desserts and the Rededication to Scouting Ceremony. Enjoy the hike east to Kit Carson's former home at Rayado Rancho. Next stopů Base Camp!'
