Two sets of layover days allow your crew to participate in lots of program on this 64 mile trek. The Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Crater Lake, where you actually climb tall spar poles with gaffs and a climbing belt, starts off your trek. There are two opportunities to shoot a 50 caliber black powder rifle as you visit Black Mountain and Clear Creek camps. Western lore, complete with horse rides, boot branding and a chuck wagon dinner, await your crew at Philmont's famous Beaubien Camp. Side hikes to Trail Peak from Beaubien and Hidden Valley from Cimarroncito Camp, as well as rock climbing, make this itinerary one of the most program packed!
