Photos needed Back 2017 Trek 33 Forward Virtual Tour

Super Strenuous; Approximately 88 miles; Maps required: South, North

This program filled trek hikes through the entire North Country, climbs Baldy Mountain, and hikes in to Base Camp via the Tooth of Time! Pack burros will even carry a portion of your gear! Start off by seeing the world’s first confirmed T-Rex track… it’s right here in the North Ponil Canyon! Camp at Anasazi and tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloan people prior to 1300 CE at Indian Writings before continuing on to Horse Canyon for the night. Work together on the challenge course at Dan Beard before camping at Sioux. Pick up burros at Ponil and continue to Pueblano. Climb spar poles, cut cross ties, and be entertained at the Company Meeting Campfire by the staff of the Continental Tie & Lumber Company. Return burros at Miranda and throw tomahawks before camping at Maxwell for the night. A two day stay there will enable your crew to climb Baldy Mountain and visit historic Baldy Town. Enjoy passing by the site of an old sawmill at New Dean, camp at Black Jacks, and explore outlaw Black Jack Ketchum's hideout on the following day! Hike down beautiful Turkey Creek Canyon and up to Harlan to reload your own shotgun shells before firing them at a scenic shooting range. Help the Conservation Department build a new trail on your way to Cimarroncito, and test your skills on several rock climbing routes. Be sure to try out the rock gym and see if you can make it around the wall. Tour Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge, visit the Demonstration Forest, and ride horses at Clarks Fork before camping at Upper Clarks Fork for the night. Rest up because one last challenge awaits… The Tooth of Time
