Compare 2020 Trek 2 to 2019 Trek 2


2020 description: 'This program packed itinerary loops through the Philmont North Country and combines high peaks and beautiful vistas with southwest history. The adventure begins with a bus from Base Camp to the Six-Mile Trailhead and a short hike to the first confirmed T-Rex footprint in the world. You’ll make your way to Anasazi trail camp where your Ranger will pass on important skills. Head up the North Ponil Canyon to Indian Writings where you will see ancestral Puebloan petroglyphs and archeology sites. Listen for the echo of the mauls striking spikes as you make your way to Metcalf Station to learn what life was like on the railroad. You’ll help rebuild the railroad and enjoy great music and stories at the evening campfire. The next day you will head to Ponil, where you will have the chance to do Cowboy Action Shooting, roping, branding, and horseback riding. Reward yourself with a cold root beer at the cantina, chow down on a delicious chuckwagon meal and prepare to be entertained at the evening Cantina Show! Head up the North Ponil River to the Continental Tie and Lumber Co. at Pueblano where your crew can climb spar poles and make rail ties before enjoying yet another amazing campfire performance. Move on up to Ute Meadows for a layover and prepare yourself with rest and reflection before your ascent of Philmont's highest peak. Climbing to the top of the 12,441 ft. Baldy Mountain is sure to be the highlight of your Philmont adventure! You’ll also enjoy the loop through Copper Park and on to the Aztec Mine at French Henry, eventually ending up back at the old mining town at Baldy Town. Your next day is just a short hike to Miranda where you will have plenty of time for muzzle loading rifles, tomahawks and the mountain man rendezvous. Challenge course events at Head of Dean will help your crew build confidence and teamwork. Shoot on over to the reopened Santa Claus camp where you will load your own shells before heading down to the range to shoot 12 gauge shotguns. Your final full day of hiking will take you to New Dean trail camp before heading to the Ponil Trailhead for your trip back to Base Camp. Whata trek!'
