2014 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 be able to orient your crew's Scouting focus under the stars at Zastrow’s Rededication to Scouting program. Start by trekking over Lovers Leap and hiking to Miners Park for rock climbing and rappelling. Next, side hike the Tooth of Time from Schaefers Pass. At Clarks Fork, test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses the following morning. Hike by the Demonstration Forest, Window Rock, and Hidden Valley before settling down at Lower Sawmill for the night. Be prepared to reload and fire .30-06 rifles at Sawmill and be the only crew to camp at Thunder Ridge. Be rewarded with views of Wheeler Peak and Baldy Mountain from on top of Mt. Phillips! Mountain men, tomahawks, and booming .50 caliber black powder rifles await you at Clear Creek. Learn to homestead at Crooked Creek and work with the Conservation Department near Buck Creek. From there, archery awaits at Apache Springs and enjoy fly fishing at Fish Camp. Hike through Webster Pass and over Lookout Peak, but be quiet as you’re approaching Lookout Meadow to increase your chances of seeing an elk herd that frequent the surrounding peaks. Watch the sunrise from the top of the meadow and you'll see why it's called Lookout Meadow! Cap off your trek with geocaching and a Dutch oven dessert at Zastrow, before touring Kit Carson's home at Rayado.'

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.
