2013 description: 'This program packed trek will give your crew a chance to sleep next to the waters of the Rayado River, climb Baldy Mountain, and shoot pistols at Ponil! You will also have the opportunity to let pack burros carry a portion of your gear! Start your trek with a tour of pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado along the Santa Fe Trail and follow the river to Rayado River Camp. Drink a cool root beer at the cantina and visit the Mexican homestead at Abreu before hiking up to one of our most beautiful trail camps, Bear Caves. Test your rock climbing skills at Miners Park and side hike the Tooth of Time if you’re up for the challenge. Tour Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge and pass by Window Rock on your way to Visto Grande. Participating in initiative games and challenge events at Head of Dean will bring your crew together. A two day stay at Miranda will give you an opportunity to shoot booming .50 caliber black powder rifles, side hike Baldy Mountain, explore Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine, and visit historic Baldy Town. Next, your crew will be able to spend the day with the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Pueblano. There you will climb spar poles, cut cross ties, and be entertained with music/stories at the logger’s “Company Meeting” campfire. Cap off your trek with Cowboy Action Shooting, boot branding, roping, a chuck wagon dinner, cantina show, horse rides, and a cowboy breakfast at Ponil!'

2012 description: 'This program filled trek will enable your crew to hike the Tooth of Time and visit some of the most pristine camps in Philmont’s Central and South Country. You will also be able to renew and orient your Scouting focus under the stars at Zastrow’s “Dedication to Scouting” program. Start your trek by walking over Lovers Leap and heading to Miners Park for rock climbing and rappelling. Next, you will be able to side hike the Tooth of Time from Schaefer’s Pass before hiking down to Clark’s Fork for the night. There you will be able to brand boots, test your roping skills, eat a chuck wagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses if you didn't climb the Tooth of Time. Make your way to the Demonstration Forest, Window Rock, and Hidden Valley before settling down at Aspen Springs for the night. The cool hike up Grouse and Sawmill Canyons will let you focus on the wildflowers and aspens instead of the heat! At Sawmill, our world class .30-06 reloading room and shooting range is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trek. Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but viewing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain will be an unparalleled reward. Booming .50 caliber black powder rifles and tomahawks will await you at Clear Creek. Enjoy the trek down the Rayado or visit one of Philmont’s most beautiful trail camps at Wild Horse before heading to homestead at Crooked Creek for the night. From there, archery at Apache Springs, fishing at Fish Camp, and a calm night under the stars at Lower Bonito will help you reflect on the journey you have made. Cap off your trek with an awesome geocache course and a Dutch oven dessert at Zastrow before touring famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado.'
