Compare 2021 Trek 6 to 2020 Trek 6


2021 description: 'This exciting trek offers a variety of great program elements, as well as a chance to summit Philmont's highest peak. Your adventure begins at Six-mile Trailhead with a short hike to McBride Canyon camp, setting you up for easy access to Hart Peak the next morning. The North Ponil is a timeline in history as you make your way to see the petroglyphs and archeological sites at Indian Writings. Head up to canyon to work on the railroad and in the forge at Metcalf Station, and enjoy the brand new depot! Be ready to face the challenges presented by the facilitators at Dan Beard as they run your crew through a series of elements designed to build teamwork. You’ll work your way down Horse Canyon to grab some more commissary goods at Ponil before heading to your trail camp at Dean Skyline...enjoy tremendous views all the way to Colorado! Shoot over to the newly reopened Santa Claus Camp where you can load your own 12-gauge Shotgun shells and then head to the range and test your shooting skills. Your stop at Black Horse Camp will be focused on exploring the mining history of the area and hiking Philmont's highest peak: Baldy Mountain. After your morning summit of Baldy, you will be passing through Miranda to partake in the Mountain Man Rendezvous. Have fun learning to throw tomahawks, or shoot Muzzle Loading Rifles, then set up camp at Maxwell so you can be ready to meet and receive your own burro. You'll learn how to pack him properly before hiking with them to your next stop Baldy Skyline, which offers a view of the peak you just conquered, and is where you will complete your conservation project. The next day will take you to the loggers of the Continental Tie and Lumber Co. at Pueblano. Here you can climb spar poles and make rail ties before ending the day with an exciting campfire “Company Meeting”. Take good care of your burro, he will help get you down to Ponil. Feel what it was like to be in an old west town, take aim at the Cowboy Action Shooting range and enjoy a hearty Chuck Wagon dinner. Celebrate with a cold root beer and prepare for the raucous Cantina Show to top off the day! Your last morning will have you riding horses before hiking to the Ponil Trailhead, where a short bus ride returns you to Base Camp to celebrate your adventure before heading home.'
