Compare 2016 Trek 33 to 2015 Trek 33


This is the only trek that will enable your crew to bag Philmont's triple crown… Baldy Mountain, Mt. Phillips, and The Tooth of Time! You will also have the opportunity to let pack burros carry a portion of your gear! Start your trek by enjoying the view of Little Costilla from Sioux Camp. Pick up burros at Ponil and visit the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Pueblano where you will climb spar poles and be treated to the logger's Company Meeting Campfire. Drop your burros off and throw tomahawks at Miranda, before hiking to Ute Meadows. A two day stay there, will give you time to climb rugged Baldy, explore Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine, and visit historic Baldy Town. Next, overcome difficult obstacles on the challenge course at Head of Dean. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department near Visto Grande and camp at Martinez Springs for the night. Continue across the Bench to reload and shoot your own 12 gauge shotgun shells at Harlan. The cool hike up Grouse and Sawmill Canyons will let you focus on the wildflowers and aspens instead of the heat! At Sawmill, our world class .30-06 reloading room and shooting range is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trek. Continue on to Comanche Peak Camp where you begin your final mountain challenge. Wake up early and watch the sunrise just east of Comanche Peak Camp, then side hike Comanche Peak and Mt. Phillips. Return to camp, grab your packs, and hike over Big Red and Black Mountain. Shoot .58 caliber black powder rifles and learn to blacksmith at Black Mountain Camp where Post Civil War Settlers will greet you. Enjoy the hike down North Fork Urraca Creek and be sure to fill up all of your water bottles. Hike over Shaefers Peak and the Tooth of Time before your triumphant return to Base Camp!
