Compare 2012 Trek 2 to 2011 Trek 1


2012 description: 'This program packed itinerary will give you all sorts of exciting options as you navigate through Philmont’s illustrious Central and South Country. At Harlan, your crew will learn how to reload shotgun shells before practicing their marksmanship at our scenic shooting range. You will then be the first to try several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito before visiting Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge and hiking through Hidden Valley. Depending on the weather, your crew will then have an opportunity to side hike the Tooth of Time. From there, hike over Black Mountain for the view or hike the luscious North Fork Urraca Creek for its beauty and multiple stream crossings. Black powder rifles await your crew at Black Mountain Camp. There, post-Civil War Union Soldiers will welcome you and share their knowledge of living on the western frontier. Your crew will then head to Beaubien for horse rides, a chuck wagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. A side hike down to Fish Camp on your layover day will leave no questions unanswered as to why Waite loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Hike over Trail Peak to Crater Lake for spar pole climbing and top off your trek with a wonderful Mexican dinner at Abreu.'

2011 description: 'Towering ponderosa pine forests and teaming trout streams await your crew as you enjoy great programs in Philmont's breathtakingly beautiful central and south country. Outstanding programs offered along the trek are shotgun shooting and reloading, rock climbing, forestry program, westem lore, horse riding, branding, a chuck wagon dinner, black powder rifle shooting, and fly tying and fishing. Finish your trek with a visit to Abreu for a historic homesteading experience with root beer at the cantina and a delicious Mexican dinner. A side hike to the Tooth of Time may be possible depending on the availability of water and weather conditions.'
