2018 description: 'This wonderful trek will enable your crew to see the majority of Philmont as you do program in the South, Central, and North Country. Hike up to scenic Toothache Springs before making your way to Urraca Mesa. Once there, initiative games and challenge events will encourage your crew to work together. Keep moving to get down to Stockade Ridge, where you will have an excellent view of the next day's objective, the Tooth of Time. After ascending the summit, hike west towards a chuckwagon dinner and the cowboy campfire at Clarks Fork. The next morning, you'll hike past the Demonstration Forest, Mr. Phillips' Hunting Lodge, and Window Rock. Camp at Upper Bench and Santa Claus before shooting the booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles at Miranda. Enjoy the sunset view from the meadow as you contemplate tomorrow's trip to Baldy Mountain! The two day stay will enable your crew to visit historic Baldy Town and climb Baldy Mountain. Hike down the South Ponil and visit the Continental Tie & Lumber Company at Pueblano. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department and enjoy the Cantina Show at Ponil. Then, enjoy the view from Dean Skyline while hiking to Dean Cow to test your rock climbing skills. Visit the Historic Chase Ranch and you'll be Base Camp bound!'
