Compare 2019 Trek 35 to 2018 Trek 34


2019 description: 'This MOUNTAINTOP trek will give your crew an opportunity to climb 12,441 ft. Baldy Mountain, 12,584 ft. Little Costilla Peak, and/or 11,230 ft. Ash Mountain South. Begin by hiking up the South Ponil Canyon to Flume Canyon and Pueblano. Climb spar poles and enjoy the Company Meeting Campfire with the Continental Tie & Lumber Company staff. Hike to Baldy Town to pick up food and continue to French Henry to mine for gold, blacksmith, and explore the Aztec Mine. Hike up the wall and be amazed as you walk down into Copper Park. Wake up early and hike to the ridge, where you will hang bear bags and day hike rugged Baldy Mountain before camping at Greenwood Canyon for the night. Enjoy waking up in the cool canyon and continue to Little Costilla Low Impact Camp, where you will prepare for another mountain challenge. In June, climb Ash Mountain, as Little Costilla is closed to the public for elk calving season. In July and August, climb Little Costilla or Ash Mountain South… or BOTH! Continue your trek to Windy Gap and safely navigate east down the ridge to Ring Place. Enjoy the astronomy program under some of the darkest skies in the United States. Continue to Dan Beard for some team building challenge events. Wake up early and head east until you hear the pinging of mauls driving rail spikes echo off the canyon walls at Metcalf Station. Be sure to check out the Ancestral Puebloan petroglyphs from 1300 CE before working with the Conservation Department on a trail project at Indian Writings. Be some of the first crews to enjoy the new rockclimbing camp at the Chase Cow Camp and take a tour of the historic Chase Ranch House on your way out the next day. Next stop… Base Camp!'
