2018 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! Start by trekking over Lovers Leap and hiking to Miners Park for rock climbing and rappelling. Next, side hike the Tooth of Time from Shaefers Pass. At Clarks Fork, test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses the following morning. Hike by Window Rock before meeting the Conservation Department for a trail construction project in scenic Hidden Valley. Reload and fire .30-06 rifles at Sawmill before climbing up to Thunder Ridge for the night. Be rewarded with views of Wheeler Peak and Baldy Mountain from on top of Mt. Phillips! Mountain men, tomahawks, and booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles await you at Clear Creek. Enjoy the hike down the Rayado and learn to homestead at Crooked Creek. From there, enjoy fly tying, fishing, and a tour of the historic lodge at Fish Camp. The hike down Rayado Canyon will reveal views of the surrounding peaks, and your crew will help the Carson Meadows staff with a search and rescue mission. Cap off your trek with geocaching and dutch oven desserts at Zastrow, before touring Kit Carson's home at Rayado. Next stop… Base Camp!'
