Compare 2018 Trek 5 to 2017 Trek 5


2018 description: 'This program intense trek follows rushing streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses lofty peaks across Philmont’s South and Central Country. You will start your trek with a gorgeous sunset at Toothache Springs. Stop by Abreu for a cool root beer before hiking to Carson Meadows, where your crew will help the staff with a search and rescue mission. From there, hike west to the Notch and enjoy the overlook of Rayado and Bonito Canyons. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will then be seen from the south side of the canyon as you continue on to Fish Camp. Enjoy fishing the same banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria Creeks as Waite Phillips. From there, your crew will spend two days in some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer at Apache Springs. You will learn about the Jicarilla Apache and test your archery skills on our sporting arrows range. Enjoy the sweat lodge before hiking to Crooked Creek and exploring the homestead. Your hike to and stay at Wild Horse is guaranteed to be memorable, as it is one of our most beautiful trail camps. Next, booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles and mountain men await you at Clear Creek before the challenging hike up Mt. Phillips and Comanche Peak. The hike will be tough, but seeing the sunrise from Comanche Peak Camp will be an unparalleled reward. From there, work on a trail project with the Conservation Department near Whistle Punk Camp, on your way to Sawmill. Shoot .30-06 rifles before testing your skills on several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito. Visit the Hunting Lodge, Demonstration Forest, and Clark’s Fork for horse rides before ascending the Tooth of Time on your way into Base Camp!'
