Compare 2012 Trek 21 to 2011 Trek 22


2012 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!'

2011 description: 'From the old Rayado River to the top of 12,441 foot Baldy Mountain and on to the historic Ponil country, this rugged itinerary completely bisects the Ranch from south to north. Along the way, you will get to rock climb, side hike the Tooth of Time, ascend Baldy Mountain, shoot black powder rifles, and become part of the Philmont legend by packing a burro to help carry your gear to Ponil. On the way to Ponil, spend a restful night at the lovely Elkhorn Trail Camp. This itinerary has been in the top ten for years!'
