Photos needed Back 2017 Trek 7 Forward Virtual Tour

Challenging; Approximately 56 miles; Maps required: North,Valle

Beautiful peaks, lush valleys, and exciting program fill this Central and South Country trek. Your crew will have a great first night at Cathedral Rock Camp before rock climbing at Cimarroncito. Enjoy the solitude of serene Webster Parks for the night. The next day, you'll follow a lightly traveled trail on your way up beautiful Sawmill Canyon. Learn to reload and shoot .30-06 rifles when you arrive at Sawmill. Hike over Comanche Peak on your way to Mt. Phillips Camp and be sure to watch one of the best sunsets at Philmont from the western summit. Views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will be a prized reward for the hard work that it took to get there! Enjoy firing .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles at Clear Creek before camping at Porcupine for the night. At Beaubien, test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, ride horses, and kick back for a cowboy campfire. Work on a forest restoration project before hiking over Trail Peak to check out the wreckage of a B24 Bomber that crashed on top in 1942. Continue on over Fowler Mesa and through Aguila where another view awaits your arrival. Hike on to Abreu where you'll enjoy a cold root beer at the cantina and a Mexican dinner at the Mexican homestead. Next, continue on to Urraca, where you will test your crew's skills on the challenge course and be treated to an evening campfire that tells of the mesa's haunted past. Wake up early and watch the sunrise from Inspiration Point to preview your final challenge. Navigate across Lovers Leap, scale the Tooth of Time, and hike all the way to Base Camp to finish your trek!
