2021 description: 'If your crew likes to fish, this itinerary is for you! Begin as you hop off the bus at Lover’s Leap and make your way uphill to Urraca Camp. Nestled among the trees is a dedicated team of Philmont Staff, trained in teambuilding skils and ready to turn your crew into a high performing machine! Descend from Urraca to the flowing waters of the Rayado River and stop for a root beer and visit the homestead of the Abreu family before heading to your trail camp, Aquila. The next day is a short jaunt over to Crater Lake and the Continental Tie & Lumber Co., but be sure to arrive early to complete your service project! Finish the evening with the most scenic campfire you’ve ever experienced and enjoy the music as it ties your heart to this magical place. Lace up your boots, because the next day’s traverse is up to Fowler Pass, down to Bonito Creek, up to Webster Pass, and down again to your destination: Fish Camp, Waite Phillips’ favorite river retreat. After a quick fly tying lesson, use your handmade fly to try and catch a trout. Next, press on toward Philmont’s rugged western boundary and enjoy some fishing at the trail camp Porcupine. Swing up to Beaubien if you like and soak in some western lore if you have a chance! On your way to Wild Horse Camp, be sure to visit the homestead at Crooked Creek and tour their rustic homestead and help with chopping wood or tending to the chickens. Rest up for the night so you can be ready to tackle Philmont's second highest peak, Mount Phillips. Along the way, though, you will have a chance to meet the fur trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. at Clear Creek. Throw some tomahawks and tour the Trapper Cabin before making your way up the mountain. After a memorable summit, make your way to Comanche Peak for the night before heading down to Hunting Lodge. Be on the lookout for the gold prospectors and miners near Cyphers Mine, and try your hand at panning for gold and touring the Contention Mine. Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge is a great place to soak in the history and wet a fly in the reservoir! At Clarks Fork, saddle up for a horse ride, enjoy a delicious Chuckwagon dinner, and end the day at a traditional cowboy campfire. With the end in sight, your crew will be tired, but motivated as you hike the scenic traverse over Shaefers Peak towards the Tooth. Enjoy the view atop the iconic Tooth of Time, then traverse Tooth Ridge as you make your way back to Base Camp.'
