/KML/2019/12 Day-06.KMZRoute 6

Bring your poles for this specially tailored fishing trek! Begin as you hop off the bus at Lover’s Leap and make your way uphill to Urraca Camp. Nestled among the trees is a dedicated team of Philmont Staff, trained in the science of teambuilding and ready to turn your crew into a high performing machine! Descend from Urraca to the flowing waters of the Rayado River and stop for a root beer and visit the homestead of the Abreu family. The next day is quite a journey to Crater Lake and the Continental Tie & Lumber Co., so arrive early to complete your service project! Finish the evening with the most scenic campfire you’ve ever experienced and enjoy the music as it ties your heart to this magical place. Lace up your boots, because the next day’s traverse is up to Fowler Pass, down to Bonito Creek, up to Webster Pass, and down again to your destination: Fish Camp, Waite Phillips’ favorite retreat. After a quick fly tying lesson, use your handmade fly to hook a trout. Next, press on toward Philmont’s rugged western boundary and enjoy some fishing at the trail camp Porcupine. Swing by Beaubien to soak in some western lore if you have a chance! On your way to Mt. Phillips, visit the homestead at Crooked Creek and the fur trappers at Clear Creek. After a memorable Mt. Phillips summit, make your way down to Hunting Lodge and lookout for the gold prospectors and miners near Cyphers Mine. Enjoy Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge, soak in the history and wet a fly in the reservoir! At Clarks Fork, saddle up for a horse ride, enjoy a delicious Chuck Wagon dinner, and end the day at a traditional cowboy campfire. With the end in sight, your crew will be tired, but motivated and optimistic along the scenic traverse to Tooth Ridge Trail Camp. This is the perfect staging point for a sunrise seat atop the iconic Tooth of Time, then traverse Tooth Ridge as you make your way back to Base Camp.
