2015 description: 'This intense trek will enable your crew to see the sunrise from Comanche Peak, climb Big Red & Bonito Peak, and check out the wreckage of a B24 bomber on Trail Peak! Begin your trek by camping at Ute Springs and hiking up beautiful Grouse and Sawmill Canyons to Sawmill Camp. Learn to reload your very own .30-06 rifle bullets and shoot them at a state of the art shooting range. Hike up to Thunder Ridge and enjoy views of Touch Me Not and Baldy Mountain along the way. Continue on to to Comanche Peak Camp and pick out the ideal location for viewing the sunrise, just east of camp. Be amazed by views of Cimarroncito Peak, the mountains to the north, and the plains to the east! If your crew is up for the challenge, side hike Comanche Peak and Mt. Phillips. Grab your gear and continue your journey over Big Red and Bonito Peak on your way to Beaubien. Rope, brand, eat a chuckwagon dinner, and be entertained at the cowboy campfire before settling down for the night. Ride horses and work with Philmont's Conservation Department on a trail or stream restoration project before checking out the wreckage of a B24 bomber that crashed on top of Trail Peak in 1942. Enjoy the serene evening at beautiful Bear Caves Camp and reflect on your journey. Finish your trek by hiking to Stonewall Pass and over Lovers Leap. Next stop… Base Camp!'

2014 description: 'This action packed itinerary will encourage your crew to work together as you explore Philmont's Central Country. Start by hiking to Vaca for the night and reload/shoot shotguns at Harlan on the following morning at a picturesque shooting range. Enjoy learning and working on a trailbuilding project with Philmont's Conservation Department on your hike to Lost Gap. Your crew will then have the opportunity to hike to Window Rock before hiking up beautiful Grouse and Sawmill Canyons on the way to Upper Sawmill. From there, enjoy incredible views of Touch Me Not and Baldy Mountain while hiking to Thunder Ridge and Cyphers Mine for the night. Once there, Charlie Cyphers and his miners will teach you how to blacksmith, mine for gold, and treat you to mining music at The Stomp! From there, enjoy the cool hike down the North Fork Cimarroncito Creek and tour Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge. Be sure to stop and check out the Demonstration Forest before branding and roping at Clarks Fork. Fill up your water bottles and hike to Ponderosa Park for the night and be sure to rest up as your final challenge awaits… the Tooth of Time!'
