Compare 2015 Trek 11 to 2014 Trek 11


This program packed SHOOTING itinerary will give your crew an opportunity to shoot all three disciplines (shotgun, rifle, & black powder) that Philmont’s beautiful Central and South Country have to offer. Start your trek by reloading and shooting your own 12 gauge shotgun shells at Harlan. From there, enjoy the hike to Deer Lake and test out several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito. Hike through Webster Parks and walk a lightly traveled trail on your way into Sawmill Canyon. Enjoy the gorgeous canyon and reload/shoot .30-06 rifles when you arrive at Sawmill. Just east of Comanche Peak Camp, an unparalleled sunrise awaits before tackling Mt. Phillips. From Mt. Phillips western summit, views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will be a prized reward for the hard work that it took to get there! Enjoy firing .50 caliber black powder rifles at Clear Creek before camping at Comanche Creek for the night. At Beaubien, you'll be able to work on a project with the Conservation Department, test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, ride horses, and kick back for a cowboy campfire. Side hike down to Black Mountain to blacksmith and shoot .58 caliber black powder rifles with post-Civil War Union Soldiers. Next, hike over Trail Peak to check out the B24 bomber that crashed on top in 1942. Continue on to Carson Meadows where your crew will help the staff with a search and rescue mission that will encourage everyone to work together. Stop at Abreu for a cold root beer and to experience the Mexican homestead before making your way to Zastrow for the night, where you will be treated to a delicious Dutch oven dessert and the Rededication to Scouting Ceremony. The final leg of your journey will include a hike along the Rayado Creek to tour western pioneer Kit Carson's home at Rayado. Learn about his adventures before making the triumphant return to Base Camp!
