If your crew enjoys GPS and land navigation, this GEOCACHING TREK is for you! Test your navigation skills on Ted Turner’s
Vermejo Park Ranch. Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department set up a challenging course in rugged country
with some of the most unique rock outcroppings and vistas that the southwest has to offer. We are challenging your crew
to be the first to locate them all! Start your trek at Dean Heck Camp before bushwacking up Slate Hill to find the
geocaches. Be amazed by the rock formations and if you pay close attention, you might even find a rock with Waite Phillips'
initials (WP) carved into it! Spend the night where few other crews have the opportunity to stay at beautiful Slate Hill Heck
Camp. Log your findings with the Harlan staff before learning to reload and shoot your own 12 gauge shells. Work on a
trail project with the Conservation Department on your way to Lost Gap. Next, hike through Hidden Valley and by Window
Rock to Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge. At Cyphers Mine, you will explore Charlie Cyphers mine and be entertained at The
Stomp. Wake up early and fill up your water bottles as you ascend Mt. Phillips. The hike will be tough, but viewing Wheeler
Peak and the Moreno Valley is something that your crew will never forget. Tomahawks and booming .50 caliber black
powder rifles await your crew at Clear Creek. From there, camp at beautiful Bear Canyon and fish the banks of the Rayado
Creek, just as Waite Phillips enjoyed to do at Fish Camp. Enjoy hiking down Rayado Canyon and help the staff at Carson
Meadows with an important search and rescue mission. Get an early start to rock climb and rappel at Miners park before
your final challenge… Tooth of Time!
