Photos needed Back 2021 Trek 7-5 Forward Virtual Tour

Challenging; Approximately 36 miles; Maps required: south; No KMZ data available


This challenging South Country itinerary will give your crew great wilderness landscapes and ample program time at staffed camps. You’ll start your trek at Zastrow Trailhead and can participate in Zastrow’s land navigation programs before heading to Rimrock Park for the night. The next day you will experience Abreu and their homesteading program, while enjoying a cold root beer at the cantina. Be ready to report to incident command after you hike to Carson Meadows for their Search and Rescue and wilderness medicine program. You will enjoy the views throughout Rayado Canyon as you hike to Agua Fria the following day, stopping for a tour of Waite Phillips’ Rayado Lodge at Fish Camp along the way. Tie flies and do a little fishing while you are there! You will hike to Beaubien the following day to see what life was like for the cowboys of the Old West. Here you can experience the western lore program, eat a chuckwagon dinner, and listen to western music at the campfire program in the evening. Wake up early, as the next day’s hike takes you to the top of Trail Peak at over 10,000 ft., where you can visit the solemn site of the wreckage of a B-24 Liberator that crashed here in 1942. You will spend that night at Crater Lake and enjoy the program of the Continental Tie and Lumber Co. where you will spar pole climb, make railroad ties, and enjoy the company meeting campfire program with the iconic Tooth of Time in view. Hike downhill to Lovers Leap Trailhead the following day to be picked up by your bus. Next stop… Base Camp!
