Photos needed Back 2021 Trek 12-20 Forward Virtual Tour

Rugged; Approximately 60 miles; Maps required: south; No KMZ data available


This peaks filled trek will give you and your crew the opportunity to conquer 6 different peaks in one journey! Start this rugged South Country traverse with a night at scenic Toothache Springs to train with your Ranger. Head to Urraca where you will participate in challenge events that will help your crew work together for the duration of your trek. Get an early start the next morning to enjoy the sunrise at Inspiration Point, then make your way to the COPE Tower at Rocky Mountain Scout Camp for some high COPE program. You will then make your way to Tooth Ridge Camp to prepare for your first two summits. You’ll top the Tooth of Time and Shaefers Peak on the way to North Fork Urraca Camp. The next morning take the beautiful hike up the North Fork Urraca Creek to Black Mountain's Post Civil War encampment. Work in the forge and shoot muzzle loading rifles while you are there. Visit the cowboys at Beaubien for a little branding and complete your Conservation project before waking up the next day and hitting your next two peaks: Bonito Peak and Big Red. Enjoy the sweeping views from Comanche Peak and Mt. Phillips and then stay the night with the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. at Clear Creek. Participate in a friendly tomahawk throwing competition while you are there. The next day, make your way down to visit the homesteaders at Crooked Creek. Help them tend the chickens, goats, and cows, then check out their rustic cabin. Your next day will take you through part of the historic CS Ranch before hiking out the Colin Neblett Wildlife Area to the Tolby Trailhead. Next stop… Base Camp!
