Trek History: New as 7-8 in 2020; 7-8 in 2021-22

This itinerary provides tremendous views and a taste of the history of the land during your journey. It all begins as you get off the bus and hike to Abreu and their New Mexican Homestead. Enjoy some root beer and soak in the legacy of the Abreu Family as your Ranger continues to educate your crew. Continue up the Bonito Creek and enjoy the beauty of the trail as you squeeze between Rayado Peak and Fowler Mesa for a night at Lower Bonito Trail Camp, aka “LoBo”. The next leg of your journey has you hiking alongside Lookout Peak, Webster Pass, and Burn Peak as you make your way to Beaubien. Be ready for an actionpacked day of Western Lore, which includes roping, branding, horse rides, and a chuckwagon dinner, topped off with an amazing Cowboy Campfire. Make your way to Black Mountain and visit the Post Civil War Encampment and try your hand at muzzle loading rifles and blacksmithing at this camp nestled alongside the North Fork Urraca. Hiking down the North Fork the next day will be a real treat, watch out for those many creek crossings, and be on the lookout for the Grizzly Tooth rock formation as well. Your camp for the night will be North Fork Urraca and will allow you to be lulled to sleep with the sounds of the babbling waters. Get some rest and be up early, your next morning brings you through Miners Park to enjoy a quick climbing activity at the main cabin so you can continue on to Lovers Leap for your important conservation project. Your last night on the trail will provide moments of reflection and feelings of reward as you look ahead to the morning’s hike up to the top of the iconic Tooth of Time. Soak in the views before making your way down Tooth Ridge and back to Base Camp. You all made it!
