Compare 2019 Trek 16 to 2018 Trek -1


2019 description: 'WOW! This itinerary has it all, from rock climbing to mining and western lore to shotgun shooting! Your Ranger will take you to the Chase Ranch main house for a quick tour, before heading to Chase Canyon Camp. You will traverse along beautiful sandstone outcrops and canyons - what mysteries they hold! Be a part of the first crews to enjoy the new Chase Cow Camp and their exciting rock climbing program before you wrap your way around to Anasazi trail camp. When you pause at the world-famous T-Rex footprint, look down at your own footprint and you’ll realize the magnitude of historical ‘footprints’ left by many creatures over eons of time – a history which YOU are now part of. Keep an eye out for more fossils and artifacts as you journey up the North Ponil watershed and move up in time to soak in more history at Indian Writings. Make your mark on the land with a meaningful service project before continuing up in time and elevation to Hart Peak and the oldwest camp called Ponil. Keep a keen eye for outlaws and enjoy a refreshing root beer at the local saloon as the lively cantina hops to life when the sun sets. Hit the hay and sleep well but as the following day is another jump forward in time and elevation to the mining camp of French Henry. On your way there, you may have time for a short break to work with the Continental Tie & Lumber Co., but don’t linger too long, there is still more to your journey! Be some of the first crews to camp at French Henry, pan for gold and explore deep into the mountain and listen for the echoes of miners from long ago! Next, lighten the mood (and packs!) with a layover at Ute Meadows. Enjoy a lighter load as you day hike Philmont’s iconic ‘Baldy’ mountain and relax at Philmont’s population hub of the north, Baldy Town. Here you can pick up your food and enjoy the brand-new shower house! Next, the Head of Dean staff will ‘pump you up’ with a variety of group exercises, but don’t sweat, they are for team building, not muscle building! It’s all downhill (mostly) from here as you stop for some shotgun shooting and reloading at Santa Claus Camp. Trail Canyon camp is your last night to peer into and ponder upon the vast cosmic wilderness before picking up your bus at Nine Mile Trailhead and returning back to Base Camp.'
