Compare 2023 Trek 12-14 to 2022 Trek 12-14


2023 description: 'This traverse of the North Country historical timeline starts off by exploring the site of the first confirmed T-Rex track in the world! Move on to Indian Writings the next day to learn about some of the oldest historical sites on the ranch, the many petroglyphs found in the canyon, as well as the pit house excavation site. Continue up the North Ponil Canyon to the site of Metcalf Station and try your hands as a railroader for the day before settling in to Horse Canyon trail camp. Hike down beautiful Horse Canyon to the original base camp and headquarters of Philmont at Ponil. Ride horses, enjoy a nice cold root beer at the Cantina and spend the rest of the day enjoying the western lore programs, a delicious chuckwagon dinner, and an exciting Cantina Show to top off the day. Pick up your burros then head over to Pueblano to spend time with the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. to experience the thrill of spar pole climbing and enjoy a great campfire program. Get ready, as the next morning you will be heading up into the mountains and cooler nights at higher elevations. First, drop off your burros at Miranda and get a glimpse of what a Mountain Man Rendezvous might have looked like and enjoy a friendly tomahawk throwing competition. Your next two nights are at a brand new trail camp called Placer, in the shadow of Baldy Mountain. You will have a layover day where you can summit Baldy Mountain, and then, if you are up for the challenge, hike down to Copper Park and French Henry to visit Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine. Get some rest after a long day and make your way to Baldy Skyline, then down the trail to Head of Dean to test your crew's teamwork skills. Your next stop is not the North Pole, but Santa Claus! Reload 12-gauge shotshells before heading down to the range to do some shooting! Your last night on the trail is at Cimarroncita, where you can learn about Hunter Safety and try out the new Laser Shooting Range! You'll make the short hike the next morning to the Ute Park Trailhead to load up on the bus for the journey back to Base Cam'
