2018 description: 'Is your crew looking for a program packed itinerary, including sunrise and sunset from Philmont’s highest camp? Look no further. This trek begins by exploring Philmont's newest property addition, the Cimarroncita Ranch. Enjoy views of Baldy from Minette Meadows. Hike through Ute Park pass before rock climbing at Cimarroncito. Complete your conservation project at Hunting Lodge before hiking up the cool and inviting North Fork Cimarroncito Creek. At Cyphers Mine, Charlie Cyphers and his miners will teach you how to blacksmith, mine for gold, and treat you to mining music at night! Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but seeing the sunset over Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley will be an unparalleled reward. Wake up early for sunrise over Deer Lake Mesa and head down to meet the mountain men of Clear Creek. Shoot .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles before resting at Comanche Creek Camp for the night. From there you will learn how the homesteaders made a living in the mountains at Crooked Creek. At Apache Springs, you will shoot 3-D animal archery targets and learn the ways of the Jicarilla Apache. Enjoy the hike down Agua Fria Creek to Fish Camp where you will tour Mr. Phillips' fishing lodge, learn how to tie flies, and fish the same waters that he loved so dearly. The next morning, hike down Rayado Canyon past Lookout, Crater, and Rayado Peaks on your way to the Notch. Then, help the staff at Carson Meadows with an important search and rescue mission. From there, enjoy a delicious Mexican dinner and a cool root beer at the Abreu cantina, but be sure to prepare yourself for the final leg of your journey… Lovers Leap and the Tooth of Time!'
