This action packed itinerary will encourage your crew to work together as you explore Philmont's Central Country. Start by hiking to Vaca for the night and reload/shoot shotguns at Harlan on the following morning at a picturesque shooting range. Enjoy learning and working on a trailbuilding project with Philmont's Conservation Department on your hike to Lost Gap. Your crew will then have the opportunity to hike to Window Rock before hiking up beautiful Grouse and Sawmill Canyons on the way to Upper Sawmill. From there, enjoy incredible views of Touch Me Not and Baldy Mountain while hiking to Thunder Ridge and Cyphers Mine for the night. Once there, Charlie Cyphers and his miners will teach you how to blacksmith, mine for gold, and treat you to mining music at The Stomp! From there, enjoy the cool hike down the North Fork Cimarroncito Creek and tour Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge. Be sure to stop and check out the Demonstration Forest before branding and roping at Clarks Fork. Fill up your water bottles and hike to Ponderosa Park for the night and be sure to rest up as your final challenge awaits… the Tooth of Time!
