2019 description: 'This lengthy itinerary will enable your crew to experience Philmont’s striking North Country and the beautiful Valle Vidal. Start your trek with a night at Dean Skyline before hiking to Santa Claus to shoot 12-gauge shotguns. As you pass through Head of Dean your crew will work together to navigate through the challenge course, then venture down to Pueblano to climb spar poles with the loggers of the Continental Tie and Lumber Co. After spending the evening at Pueblano Ruins, hike to Baldy Town to get food to fuel your crew for your next challenge: Baldy Mountain! Wake up early at beautiful Copper Park to climb over Baldy Mountain and then visit French Henry to explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine. Make the journey to Greenwood Canyon Camp after another evening at Copper Park, where you will then head northeast into the Valle Vidal Unit of the Carson National Forest. Here you will experience the incredible ponderosa pine stands and some of the most heavily populated elk habitat in the southwest. Camp at Iris Park and Ring Place and lend a hand on a stream restoration project and gaze at the Milky Way. Head out the next day through the North Ponil Canyon to meet up with the railroaders at Metcalf Station. Help them build a railroad and enjoy their entertaining evening campfire program. Keep on heading downstream to Indian Writings where you will tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloan people prior to 1300 CE and work on an archaeological dig to discover more clues of their activities on Philmont property. Spend the evening at lovely House Canyon Camp and make sure you see the world’s first confirmed TRex track on your way to the Six Mile Gate Trailhead. Next stop…Base Camp!'
