Compare 2013 Trek 3 to 2012 Trek 2


2013 description: 'This program packed itinerary will give you all sorts of exciting options as you navigate through Philmont’s gorgeous Central and South Countries. At Harlan, your crew will learn how to reload shotgun shells before practicing their marksmanship at our scenic shooting range. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department before hiking on to Deer Lake Mesa. From there, try several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito before side hiking Hidden Valley and Window Rock. Be sure to tour Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge and visit the Demonstration Forest. Depending on the weather, your crew may then have an opportunity to side hike the Tooth of Time from Shaefers Pass. Next, hike over Black Mountain for the view or hike the lush North Fork Urraca Creek for its beauty and multiple stream crossings. Black powder rifles and blacksmithing await your crew at Black Mountain Camp. There, post-Civil War Union Soldiers will welcome you and share their knowledge of living on the western frontier. Your crew will then head to Beaubien for horse rides, a chuck wagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. Take the opportunity to side hike to Fish Camp on your layover day and leave no questions unanswered as to why Waite loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Hike over Trail Peak to Crater Lake for spar pole climbing and camp at serene Bear Caves for the night. Enjoy the view from Aguila and cap off your trek with a wonderful Mexican dinner and root beer at Abreu. Hike through Zastrow for your final geocaching challenge. Next stop… Base Camp!'
