Compare 2021 Trek 7 to 2020 Trek 7


2021 description: 'Explore territories previously unknown to Philmont with this SUPER SOUTH itinerary. Hop off the bus with your Ranger at the Zastrow Trailhead and hike through Zastrow from some Geocaching before camping at Line Camp. From there you will hike to Crags through massive geologic strata representing ancient landscapes from oceans to volcanoes. But first, pass through Carson Meadows incident command center, where your group may be called upon to help in a search and rescue operation. Crags Camp is a unique spot off the beaten path, and the hike to Agua Fria follows the path of a river that has spent countless eons cutting the entire valley you see before you today. Pull over at Fish Camp and walk away with a handmade fly and try to catch a fish after touring Waite Phillips’ Rayado Lodge. From Agua Fria to Garcia Cow, you will be crossing through Apache Springs and over Philmont’s southern boundary. Be one of the first to experience the new Wildlife Conservation program and learn the teachings of Ernest T. Seton. Make your way to Crooked Creek and learn how early homesteaders lived off of the land and cared for their animals. The next day’s climb of Mt. Phillips is steep and an early start is needed to avoid afternoon weather. After summitting Philmont’s second highest peak, you will get a break as you bed down at Red Hills for the night. Next, make a quick side trip to Big Red, and head to Phillips Junction and Beaubien and take a load off when you get there - you earned it! Sit in a saddle for a horse ride, pass the time with western lore, enjoy a chuckwagon dinner as big as the West, and get ready for wild evening performances, As you leave Beaubien, take advantage of the rare opportunity to see a WWII B24 Liberator crash on Trail Peak. Stop by Crater Lake to work with the loggers, then off to Miners Park and try your hand at rock climbing. Finally, it’s all downhill from Miners Park to your final camp at Stockade Ridge. Get to camp early and maximize your available time for a side hike up the iconic Tooth of Time. Enjoy the views and reflect on your amazing experience. Next stop…Base Camp!'
