2012 description: 'This Valle Vidal itinerary will enable you to see an incredible assortment of wildlife, enormous grass filled vegas, healthy ponderosa pine stands, and rugged mountains to the north of Philmont. You will also have the opportunity to let pack burros carry a portion of your gear! Start your trek with thought provoking initiative games and challenge course events that will bring your crew together. From there, you will help our staff with a search and rescue at Seally Canyon, visit the historic Ring Ranch, and ride some of the best mountain biking trails in northern New Mexico. You will also have the unparalleled opportunity to preview your Baldy Mountain ascent from the meadow on the north end of McCrystal Creek. Make your way south back to Philmont in time to review all of the ground you have covered from Baldy’s northern ridgeline and peak! Visit French Henry and explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine and historic Baldy Town. Shoot booming .50 caliber black powder rifles and pick up burros at Miranda. Drop off your burros and cap off your trek with Cowboy Action Shooting, boot branding, roping, a chuck wagon dinner, cantina show, horse rides, and a cowboy breakfast at Ponil!'

2011 description: 'Here is a beautiful and scenic loop trek that wanders along mountain streams and up over Baldy Mt. Loaded with program and just long enough to help you earn the 50 miler award, the shorter hikes aI/ow your crew time to enjoy Leave No Trace, homesteading, gold mining and panning, spar pole climbing and challenge events. From Head of Dean you will hike into Ponll, our western lore camp, where your crew will enjoy horse rides, branding, and two final chuck wagon meals - supper and breakfast. What a way to top off this exciting Philmont experience!'
