Compare 2019 Trek 20 to 2018 Trek -1


2019 description: 'This trek tours Philmont's South Country, neighboring properties and a brand-new backcountry camp. The adventure begins with a bus ride to the Zastrow Trailhead and a hike to the Rayado River rail camp. Stop at Zastrow to practice skills that will benefit you the rest of your trek. Your next day wraps you around Fowler Mesa to Crater Lake where you can live like a logger, climb spar poles and swing a broad axe to make cross ties. Get your rest, a big day of hiking takes you over Fowlers Pass, over Trail Peak, and down the long open meadows to Beaubien. Take a load off and learn western skills like roping and branding before taking the short hike to Phillips Junction. Head to Fish Camp where you can make a fly and try catching a trout in the cold stream, tour Rayado Lodge, and take your first jaunt off of Philmont as you head to Daves Lake camp. Wildlife viewing opportunities abound in the large meadows between here and Garcia Cow Camp, where you will learn about Wildlife Conservation and the famous naturalist and first Chief Scout, Earnest Thomas Seton. The epic views will continue as you hike to Saladon Camp where high mountain lakes and large meadows will give your crew views that many have never seen. Cross back on to Philmont and visit the fur trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur company at Clear Creek to test your skill at tomahawk throwing, then begin your ascent of Mt. Phillips. After a night of rest, head down the mountain towards Cyphers Mine to complete your conservation project and try some gold panning before camping at Lamberts Mine trail camp. Come back for the Stomp if you can! Continue down the Middle Fork to try rock climbing under the tutelage of the trained climbing staff at Cimarroncito. The final full day of hiking will take you past Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge. Take a tour before stopping at the Demonstration Forest and heading to Clarks Fork. Roping and branding are parts of the program, but the Chuck Wagon dinner and campfire is sure to make for memorable final night. Fill up with water and hit the trail early so you can finish your trek strong with a summit of Shaefers Peak and the famed Tooth of Time. Conjure up your memories from your trek as you hike the ridge down to Base Camp to complete this amazing experience.'
