rugged; Approximately 36 miles; Maps required: South; No KMZ data available


This great South Country Trek will enable your crew to hike through some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer! Begin your trek by hiking over Lovers Leap on your way to Miners Park for the night. Hone your climbing skills and traverse around the climbing wall before putting those skills to the test on some of Philmont's most difficult rock routes. Rappel to safety after your climb and prepare for the beautiful hike over Fowler Mesa to Lower Bonito Camp for the night. Be sure to walk down to the edge of Bonito Canyon during the evening to see if you can spot the small elk herd that frequents the area. Continue to Beaubien for roping and branding before hiking to Crooked Creek for the night. Learn to homestead and see if you could have survived by living off the land. You will then have the opportunity to work with Philmont's Conservation Department on a new trail construction project before hiking to Apache Springs. Learn the ways of the Jicarilla Apache and test your archery skills on 3-dimensional wildlife archery targets. Hike across Turkey Creek and camp at beautiful Bear Canyon Camp. Tour Waite Phillips fishing lodge at Fish Camp and enjoy stellar views of Lookout and Crater Peak while hiking down Rayado Canyon. Continue on to Carson Meadows and help the staff with an imporant search and rescue mission that will require your crew to work together. Hike to Abreu to enjoy a cool root beer before completing your trek at the Zastrow Turnaround. Next stop… Base Camp!
