Compare 2018 Trek 13 to 2017 Trek 13


2018 description: 'This trek is full of wonderful program opportunities, such as black powder rifles, spar pole climbing, and railroading at Metcalf Station! Start by camping at Cathedral Rock and hiking past the picturesque Cimarroncito Reservoir. Check out the Demonstration Forest and tour Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge before rock climbing and rappelling at Cimarroncito. On the following day, your crew will love the gorgeous downhill hikes through the lush Sawmill and Grouse Canyons! From there, your crew's journey to the North Country will pass through Hawkeye and Upper Dean Cow Camps before spending two days at Miranda, where the mountain men will let you shoot their booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles! Next, create your own mountaintop experience by summiting Baldy Mountain, checking out Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine, and visiting historic Baldy Town. Hike over to Pueblano where you'll climb spar poles with the men of the Continental Tie & Lumber Company before continuing to Flume Canyon for the night. At Ponil, enjoy horse rides and branding before filling up at the Chuckwagon Dinner. On your way down from Hart Peak, you will hear the pinging of the hammer echo off the canyon walls at Metcalf Station, where railroading and blacksmithing await your crew. Work on a trail construction project with the Conservation Department near Indian Writings. Tour the petroglyphs, learn about the Ancestral Puebloan people, and test your atlatl skills before hiking down to Anasazi Camp. Next stop… Base Camp!'
