2019 description: 'This great south country itinerary will take you through pristine parts of Philmont with a variety of great program opportunities. Start off your trek at Rayado Trailhead where you will learn about Kit Carson and Lucien Maxwell’s Santa Fe Trail outpost. After a night enjoying the stars at Olympia, you’ll hike to Carson Meadows where you’ll enjoy the search and rescue program and learn about wilderness medicine. The next day you’ll hike through the scenic Rayado Canyon on your way through Fish Camp to Agua Fria. Tie a fly, tour Waite Phillips’ Rayado Lodge, and see if you can catch a trout! Enjoy the beautiful hike from Agua Fria to Lost Cabins before taking a pit stop at Apache Springs to learn about the life of the Jicarilla Apache. Next, you’ll hike to one of Philmont’s newest camps, Garcia Cow, where you will enjoy learning about wildlife conservation practices and the teachings of Earnest Thompson Seton, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America. Keep your eyes peeled for the elk heard as you make your way through the vast meadows of Garcia Park and Saladon Lake. You’ll enjoy the great views of Mt. Wheeler and the range of mountains stretching all the way to Baldy as you make your way to one of Philmont’s most pristine camps: Wild Horse. Be sure to visit the homesteaders at Crooked Creek before making your stop at Buck Creek trail camp. Get your rest, you’ll need it as you make your hike up to Red Hills, one of Philmont’s highest altitude camps. The nest day you’ll side hike to Mt. Phillips before dropping down into Black Mountain camp where you’ll enjoy the .58 caliber muzzle loading program and try your hand at blacksmithing. After enjoying the hike down the North Fork Urraca trail, look for the Grizzly Tooth rock formation as you make your way to Miners Park where you will rock climb and rappel. Your last night will be at Stockade Ridge where you’ll get a great view of the Tooth of Time. Be sure to get up early and side hike the Tooth before you get picked up by a bus from Lovers Leap Trailhead. Next Stop… Base Camp!'
