2018 description: 'This intense trek covers a lot of ground in Philmont’s rugged North and Central Country. Start your trek by seeing the world’s first confirmed T-Rex track… it’s right here in the North Ponil Valley! You will then be able to see the fascinating petroglyphs and artifacts left by the Ancestral Puebloan people at Indian Writings, and work with the Conservation Department on a trail project before continuing on to Metcalf Station for the night. Check out the newest railroad line in New Mexico! Hike to Dan Beard for team building challenge events. Pass through the Rich Cabins homestead, and enjoy the views from Wilson Mesa while on your way to beautiful Pueblano Ruins and the South Ponil Canyon. Two nights at Baldy Town will give you time to summit Baldy Mountain, explore Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine, and be amazed when a beautiful view greets you as you walk down into Copper Park. Next, you will journey south to camp at Santa Claus and Deer Lake Mesa on the following night. Continue on to check out the new rock climbing routes at Cimarroncito. Be sure to test your skills in the rock gym and on the climbing wall. Tour Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge and visit the Demonstration Forest on your way to Clarks Fork for roping and branding. Continue on to Tooth Ridge Camp, and meet your final challenge…the Tooth of Time!'
