Compare 2018 Trek 28 to 2017 Trek 28


2018 description: 'This exciting trek will give your crew a chance climb Philmont's tallest mountains while enjoying the serenity of many trail camps. There are also plenty of opportunities to enjoy some of our classic programs along the way. Start your trek with a visit to Zastrow to hone your navigation skills before heading up to rugged Rimrock Park for the night. Stop in at the Mexican homestead at Abreu before continuing on to beautiful Lower Bonito! Hike down to Fish Camp to tour Mr. Phillips' Fishing Lodge. Walk the banks of the Rayado all the way up to Porcupine, and make your way to Crooked Creek for the night. You'll be able to relax underneath huge Douglas Fir trees. Next, fire black powder rifles with the Rocky Mountain Fur Company at Clear Creek, and hike to the summit of Mt. Phillips. The sunset view of Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley are your reward after the long climb. From there, head down to Sawmill for .30-06 rifle shooting and reloading. Enjoy the beautiful hike down cool Sawmill and Grouse Canyons on your way to Upper Bench. Begin your journey to the North Country and hike up Bear Canyon on your way to Santa Claus. Work together to succeed on the challenge course at Head of Dean. Then, head to picturesque Ewells Park. Two nights there will give you plenty of time to climb Baldy Mountain and visit the Aztec Mine at French Henry for a tour and blacksmithing. Leave early to make your conservation project at Flume Canyon. The chuckwagon dinner at Ponil will fill you up after a long day on the trail. Stick around for cowboy action shooting in the morning before catching the bus back to Base Camp..'
