Compare 2012 Trek 13 to 2011 Trek 5


2012 description: 'This program intense trek covers a lot of ground in Philmont’s rugged North and Central Country. Start off by seeing the world’s only known T-Rex track in the North Ponil Valley. From there, watch a gorgeous sunset at House Canyon Camp and wake up to visit the fascinating petroglyphs left by the ancient Ancestral Puebloan people at Indian Writings. Next, your crew will visit historic Ponil where Cowboy Action Shooting will make its Philmont programmatic debut this summer. Brand boots, test your roping skills, eat a chuck wagon dinner, and a cowboy breakfast before hiking to Dean Cow for rock climbing and rappelling. Go on to learn how to reload your own shotgun shells before you shoot them at our picturesque shooting range. The cool hike up Grouse and Sawmill Canyons will let you focus on the wildflowers and aspens instead of the heat! At Sawmill, our world class .30-06 reloading room and shooting range is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trek. Visit Cypher’s Mine, Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge, the Demonstration Forest, and Clark’s Fork before hiking into Base Camp via Tooth Ridge and the Tooth of Time!'

2011 description: 'Visit the fascinating petroglyphs left by the ancient Anasazi people and see the world's only known Trex track in the North Ponil Valley as you begin this itinerary. Other action packed programs offered are horse rides, branding, and two chuck wagon meals. Later enjoy rock climbing and 12-gauge and .30-06 rifle reloading and shooting. Visit Waite Phillips' famous Hunting Lodge and stop by the demonstration forest area before your victory hike over the Tooth of Time.'
