This 55 mile trek follows rushing steams, hiking your crew through green mountain meadows, traverses lofty peaks and ridges, across Philmont’s south and central country. You will learn search and rescue at Carson Meadows, your crew's first staffed camp; Fly tying and fishing, Jicarilla Apache life, 3 dimensional archery and black powder shooting are early features of this trek. After hiking over Mt. Phillips (11,711’), pan for gold and enjoy the “stomp” at Cyphers Mine. Day 10 finds your crew at Cimarroncito for rock climbing and environmental awareness, before you hike into Base Camp over the Tooth of Time.
