Compare 2012 Trek 19 to 2011 Trek 30


2012 description: 'If your crew is up for the challenge… they will enjoy every second of a new “Challenge Course” trek! This trek will climb over Baldy Mt, participate at challenge course camps, be given an envelope of initiative games (and Leave No Trace games) to open at two trail camps, and daringly master our high ropes COPE Course to top off the experience! The trek will begin by visiting the Continental Tie and Lumber Company, where your crew will climb spar poles, cut railroad ties, and be entertained by the loggers at their “Company Meeting” campfire. Be amazed at your proximity to Baldy Mountain when you enter the wildflower filled meadow at Ewells Park (en route Baldy Town and Ute Meadows). Your two day stay at Ute Meadows will enable you to climb Baldy, shoot black powder rifles at Miranda, explore the Aztec Mine at French Henry, and tour historic Baldy Town. When all that is complete, you will hike to Head of Dean to complete the first part of your challenge course experience. Upon completion of the course, your Crew Leader and Wilderness Pledge Guia will each be given an envelope of initiative games to complete while you are en route to Miners Park. There you will overcome another challenge when you test your rock climbing skills. The next day you will hike to Urraca Mesa to participate in some advanced challenge course events and where you will guide the staff through an initiative game or two of your own. The staff there will prep you on high ropes hard skills, communication, and safety. Next you will hike over Lovers Leap to the Stockade. On the last morning, your final test will be to conquer the high ropes at our Cope Course before returning to Base Camp.'

2011 description: 'If your crew is in shape for long hikes down deep canyons and over 10,000 ft. mountains, then this strenuous itinerary is for you. This route is designed for the crew who wants to climb Baldy Mountain and Mt. Phillips and stay in some of Philmont's most beautiful trail camps. There still may be time to do many fun-filled programs such as the challenge events at Head of Dean, gold panning at French Henry, .30-06 rifle at Sawmill, and enjoy the great Chuck Wagon dinner at Beaubien. Hike in to Base Camp via the famous Tooth of Time Ridge Trail.'
