Compare 2013 Trek 7 to 2012 Trek 1


2013 description: 'If your crew enjoys fishing cool and teaming mountain streams, this “Fishing Trek” will be a great choice! Feel free to bring your fishing equipment and purchase a license before fishing some of the best mountain streams you will come across. Start your trek by visiting famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado along the Santa Fe Trail before following the river up to Olympia and Abreu. Enjoy the Mexican homestead, root beer at the cantina, and a delicious Mexican dinner as you listen to the waters of the Rayado flow by before resting for the evening. Your next stop at Fish Camp will leave no questions unanswered as to 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 Bear Canyon Camp. From there, you’ll be able to fish the Rayado all the way from Phillips Junction to Porcupine, and on to Clear Creek, where you will hear booming .50 caliber black powder rifles as you come into camp. 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 Cypher’s Mine for the evening “Stomp” with Charlie’s musician miners. From there, you’ll be able to fish the picturesque Cimarroncito Reservoir, hike to Window Rock, and wrap up your trek on the Cimarron River. Keep cool by the rushing water and enjoy leisurely casting while you wait for your ride into Base Camp.'

2012 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 with a search and rescue mission that will require your crew to work together at Carson Meadows. You will then hike west to the “Notch,” overlooking both Rayado and Bonito Canyons. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will be seen from the south side of Rayado Canyon. Enjoy Fish Camp just like Waite Phillips, as you fish the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria Rivers. From there, your crew will spend two days in some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer at Apache Springs. The hike to and stay at Wild Horse is guaranteed to be memorable, as it is one of our most beautiful trail camps. Booming .50 caliber black powder rifles await you at Clear Creek. Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but seeing the sunset over Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley will be an unparalleled reward. Enjoy gold mining, blacksmithing, and panning at Cypher’s Mine before climbing several new routes at Cimarroncito. Visit the Hunting Lodge, Demonstration Forest, and Clark’s Fork before ascending the Tooth of Time on your way into Base Camp.'
