2010 description: 'Although considered the super star of all itineraries that covers 103 miles, this trip takes you through
many rolling meadows and traverses the entire backbone of Philmont and the Valle Vidal. Your route
takes you past the world's only known T-Rex track and by ancient Indian writings along the roadbed of
the famous Cimarron and Northwestern Railroad to the end of the line at Whiteman Vega. Turn south
towards the Middle Ponil and hike along the stream where you will camp at the mouth of Greenwood
Canyon. Travel past Rich Cabins and over Wilson Mesa to Dean Canyon and into Bear Canyon
heading toward the majestic Visto Grande camp. You are now hiking through the central and southern
part of the Ranch, over Shaefers Pass to Miners Park and finally all the way to Carson Meadows. This
is a trek for the rare crew whose fitness level and stamina fit the ultimate challenge!'
2009 description: 'A super strenuous, but exciting itinerary awaits the well prepared crews on this 86 mile trek. Your crew
can conquer most of Philmont’s major peaks, all over 10,000 feet. Included are Bonito Peak, Big Red,
Mt. Phillips, Comanche Peak and Baldy Mountain. A remote wilderness camping experience is
provided while hiking much of the Philmont territory. Time for program opportunities is limited.
However, your crew may enjoy rock climbing, western lore, boot branding, logging skills and
archaeology on this super strenuous hike.'
