This challenging itinerary will take you to some of the South Country’s most scenic camps with excellent mountain top experiences, a plethora of evening campfires, and great program opportunities along the way. You will start your itinerary off at Webster Trailhead before spending the night at one of Philmont’s newest trail camps: Arrowhead. If you like, you can catch your fist campfire by hiking over to Clarks Fork. You’ll be passing through there the next day as you make your way to the Demonstration Forest to visit with the forester on duty. Your crew will enjoy rock climbing at Cimarroncito before hiking on to Lamberts Mine along the scenic Middle Fork of the Cimarroncito Creek trail. Hike on over from Lamberts Mine, and your crew will enjoy the famous evening musical program of Cyphers Mine’s Stomp. The next day, your crew will climb over Comanche Peak on your way to Mt. Phillips. Make sure to watch the sunset from the summit before spending the night at Philmont’s highest elevation camp. Wake up early to hike down and visit the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. at Clear Creek. If you have time, say hello to the homesteaders at Crooked Creek, too! The scenic and tranquil Porcupine camp is your next stop along the banks of Rayado Creek before heading to Beaubien for a layover for the next two days. While at Beaubien, your crew will enjoy seeing what life was like for the cowboys of the old west. Here you can go horseback riding, eat a Chuck wagon dinner, and listen to western music at the campfire program in the evening. They have two different shows, catch them both! The next day takes you over Trail Peak at 10,250 ft. above sea level before you hike down to Bear Caves for the evening. Your crew should hike back to Crater Lake that evening for the Continental Tie and Lumber Company’s company meeting campfire with the iconic view of Tooth Ridge as the backdrop. Your crew will enjoy the challenge course of Urraca and their evening campfire the following day before hiking on to Tooth Ridge for your last night in the backcountry. After summitting your final challenge, the famous Tooth of Time, your final stop is right in front of you… Base Camp!
