Compare 2016 Trek 5 to 2015 Trek 5


If your crew enjoys a lot of program and fishing cool mountain streams… the FISHING TREK is a great choice! Feel free to bring your fishing equipment and fish some of the best mountain streams you will ever come across. Start your trek by visiting famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado, along the Santa Fe Trail, before following the river to Olympia and Abreu. Enjoy the Mexican Homestead, cantina, and a delicious Mexican dinner as you listen to the waters of the Rayado rush past your campsite. Help the staff at Carson Meadows with an important search and rescue mission before entering beautiful Rayado Canyon. Your next stop at Fish Camp is where you will discover why Waite Phillips loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Tour Waite’s historic fishing lodge and fish the Agua Fria all day on your way to Apache Springs. From there, hike to Phillips Junction and fish the Rayado all the way to Porcupine, and on to Clear Creek, where you will hear booming .50 caliber black powder rifles as you hike into camp. The Rocky Mountain Fur Company will welcome you and let you take target practice with their rifles and tomahawks. The trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but viewing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain will be an unparalleled reward. Drop down into Cyphers Mine for the evening Stomp with Charlie’s musician miners. From there, you’ll be able to fish the picturesque Cimarroncito Reservoir, tour Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge, hike to Window Rock & Hidden Valley. Test your rock climbing skills at Cimarroncito before camping at Deer Lake Mesa for the night. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department at Visto Grande and wrap up your trek fishing on the Cimarron River. Keep cool by the rushing water and enjoy casting while you wait for your ride to Base Camp!
