2012 description: 'This program filled trek will give you a chance to climb Baldy Mountain, camp near Black Jack’s hideout, and hike over the Tooth of Time! Start your trek with a cool glass of root beer at Ponil before making your way to Flume Canyon for the night. Climb spar poles and cut cross ties with the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Pueblano before heading over beautiful Wilson Mesa to Rich Cabins. At Rich, you will learn how the old homesteaders survived in the mountains and be treated to an evening of entertainment. Hike to Upper Greenwood where you will need to rest up before climbing to Copper Park and Baldy Mountain. From Copper Park, hike down to French Henry to learn blacksmithing skills and explore Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine. The next day, your crew will hike over Baldy Mountain with the option of carrying full packs… if you’re up for the challenge! Tour historic Baldy Town and camp at Baldy Skyline for the night. Hike to Black Jacks, but be sure to participate in initiative games and challenge events (that are sure to bring your crew together) at Head of Dean. Have fun exploring outlaw Black Jack Ketchum’s Hideout on your way to rock climb and rappel at Dean Cow. At Harlan, your crew will enjoy loading their own shotgun shells before testing their skills at our scenic shooting range. Your crew will be able to reflect on their journey at cool and luscious Lower Sawmill before hitting the trail and heading to Clark’s Fork. There, you will brand boots, test your roping skills, enjoy a Chuck Wagon dinner, and cap off the evening with a cowboy campfire. Be sure to wake up early, fill your water bottles, and hit the trail towards Shaefer’s Pass and the Tooth of Time!'

2011 description: 'This strenuous itinerary begins in the historic area of the north country with program at Rich Cabins and a peaceful night at beautiful Greenwood Canyon. From there, your crew is off to Baldy Town, French Henry, and Baldy Mountain; the fascinating gold mining district where you can enjoy the mining and blacksmithing programs. You will then spend two days exploring Dean Canyon, highlighted by challenge events at Head of Dean and rock climbing at Dean Cow camp. Youmay also try your hand at buao racing, shotgun shooting, western lore, and branding before heading back to Camping Headquarters along the Tooth of Time Ridge.'
