Compare 2013 Trek 14 to 2012 Trek 13


2013 description: 'This program filled trek will enable your crew to hike the Tooth of Time and visit some of the most pristine camps in Philmont’s Central and South Country. You will also be able to renew and orient your Scouting focus under the stars at Zastrow’s “Dedication to Scouting” program. Start your trek by walking over Lovers Leap and heading to Miners Park for rock climbing and rappelling. Next, you will be able to side hike the Tooth of Time from Schaefer’s Pass before hiking down to Clark’s Fork for the night. There you will be able to brand boots, test your roping skills, eat a chuck wagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses if you didn't climb the Tooth of Time. Make your way to the Demonstration Forest, Window Rock, and Hidden Valley before settling down at Aspen Springs for the night. 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. Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but viewing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain will be an unparalleled reward. Booming .50 caliber black powder rifles and tomahawks will await you at Clear Creek. Enjoy the trek down the Rayado or visit one of Philmont’s most beautiful trail camps at Wild Horse before heading to homestead at Crooked Creek for the night. From there, archery at Apache Springs, fishing at Fish Camp, and a calm night under the stars at Lower Bonito will help you reflect on the journey you have made. Cap off your trek with an awesome geocache course and a Dutch oven dessert at Zastrow before touring famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado.'

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!'
