Compare 2018 Trek 6 to 2017 Trek 6


2018 description: 'This great itinerary will give you plenty of options for participating in exciting program and bagging rugged mountains in Philmont's Central and South Country. Start by hiking over Lovers Leap on your way to visit the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Crater Lake. You will climb spar poles, cut railroad ties, and take part in the logger's Company Meeting at a picturesque campfire bowl overlooking the Tooth of Time. After completing a conservation project at Crater Lake, head to Miners Park for some rock climbing. Follow the lush North Fork Urraca Creek to Black Mountain Camp. Post-Civil War soldiers will welcome you to their outpost and let you shoot their booming .58 muzzle loading rifles. Our most remote staff camp, Crooked Creek, is a great opportunity to learn the homesteading skills prized by early settlers. You will get show off your tomahawk throwing skills at Clear Creek before climbing up Mt. Phillips. It will be challenging, but seeing the sunset over Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley will be something your crew never forgets. Hike over Comanche Peak before descending to Cyphers Mine for gold panning and a mine tour. From there, hike the North Fork Cimarroncito Creek to the Hunting Lodge, where you'll see how Mr. Phillips would have lived and hunted in the 1930's. Restock on supplies at Ute Gulch, and spend the night at beautiful Aspen Springs. Enjoy the view from Window Rock, and preview the hike ahead of you from the top. Hike past the Cimarroncito Reservoir and visit the Demonstration Forest before approaching your final challenge… The Tooth of Time!'
