Compare 2012 Trek 12 to 2011 Trek 10


2012 description: 'This action packed itinerary will encourage your crew to work together as you explore Philmont’s South and Central Country. Start off by trekking across Lovers Leap before heading to Urraca Mesa for initiative games and challenge course events that will aid your crew’s development throughout the rest of the trek. From there, you will visit a Mexican homestead at Abreu and help the staff at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission. You will then hike west to the “Notch,” overlooking both Rayado and Bonito Canyons. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will be seen from the south side of Rayado Canyon as you make your way to Fish Camp. Enjoy Fish Camp just like Waite Phillips, as you fish the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria Rivers. At Apache Springs, your crew will spend two days in some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer. Make your way to Phillips Junction and enjoy the serene hike up to Porcupine for the night. Booming .50 caliber black powder rifles and tomahawks await you at Clear Creek. Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but seeing the sunset over Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley will be an unparalleled reward. Your crew will enjoy learning how to reload .30-06 rifle and shotgun shells before firing them at Sawmill and Harlan.'

2011 description: 'This action-packed itinerary takes you along the cool mountain streams and lofty peaks of the south and central country. Enjoy a Mexican homestead, Cantina, and Mexican dinner at Abreu. You're then off to Fish Camp to seek the elusive trout. Trek on to beautiful Apache Springs Camp and shoot the 3D archery course and learn about the Jicarifla Apache people . Rest-up at the Crooked Creek homestead before hiking to Mt. Phillips Camp where you will spend a night at Philmont's highest camp. Head to Sawmill Camp for .30-06 shooting and reloading then stop at Clarks Fork for Western Lore, branding, and horse rides while you camp at the beautiful Tooth Ridge trail camp. Your last day takes you in to Base Camp via the Tooth of Time.'
