Compare 2018 Trek 12 to 2017 Trek 12


2018 description: 'This program intense trek follows rushing streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses lofty peaks across Philmont’s South and Central Country. Hone your land navigation skills at Zastrow before camping at Rayado River for the night. Next, hike through Abreu and drink a cool root beer at the cantina before helping the staff at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission that will challenge your crew to work together. From there, enjoy the hike to Crags through the Notch and be one of the lucky few to sleep at the bottom of Rayado Canyon. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will be seen from the trail on your way to Fish Camp where you will get to tour Waite Phillips' lodge at the intersection of the Agua Fria and Rayado Creeks. Enjoy the hike up the Agua Fria to pristine Lost Cabin Camp. The next morning at Apache Springs, encounter the Jicarilla and shoot 3-D archery targets before setting off to the homestead at Crooked Creek. Tomahawks, mountain living, and booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles await you at Clear Creek. The hike up Mt. Phillips will be tough, but seeing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain is something your crew will never forget. Hike over Comanche Peak to Red Hills and then over the beautiful highline between Big Red and Bonito Peak. Swing down to Beaubien for roping, branding, conservation, a chuckwagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. Hike Trail Peak on your way to visit the Continental Tie & Lumber Company at Crater Lake. Enjoy the Company Meeting Campfire. Your final challenge awaits… the Tooth of Time!'
