Compare 2019 Trek 31 to 2018 Trek -1


2019 description: 'This mountaintop Itinerary gives your crew the chance to climb the two tallest peaks Philmont has to offer: Baldy Mountain and Ash Mountain or Little Costilla. Your journey begins at the Ponil Trailhead for the short hike to Dean Cutoff where your Ranger can impart upon you the training that will benefit you for the rest of your trek. From there, you will make your way over to Pueblano to learn skills from the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. During your stay, you will spar pole climb and make railroad ties. Then at night, you can unwind with their spectacular campfire show. The following day you will make your way to Copper Park but stop by French Henry’s Aztec mine for a little tour and some blacksmithing. Get your rest, because the next day is time to conquer your first peak, Baldy Mountain. Then it’s back to Copper park for the night! The next day has you making your way off of Philmont and on to neighboring lands and into Greenwood Canyon for the night. Continue your hike into the vast and beautiful Valle Vidal to make your way up to Little Costilla Camp. Your next conquest comes the next day in the form of either Ash Mountain or Little Costilla! In June, climb Ash Mountain South, as Little Costilla is closed to the public for elk calving season. In July and August, climb Little Costilla or Ash Mountain... or both! From there make your way over to Ring Place for some Conservation and some lessons in Astronomy. Then down to Beatty lakes for the evening and do some star gazing on your own. Be sure to visit the incident command post at Seally Canyon for some search and rescue training before heading back onto Philmont proper for a visit at the Cimarron & Northwestern Ry. The section gang there will have you building a railroad in no time and will treat you with an outstanding campfire performance you will never forget. Your last day on the trail will bring you to the Petroglyphs at Indian Writings and the T-Rex Track just past Anasazi Camp. Be sure to see both, they are a treat to behold in person. Don’t delay, though, as you still need to make it to the Six Mile Trailhead for your bus back to base camp.'
