This exciting itinerary will get you to the highest peak on Philmont Scout Ranch, and enjoy a nice variety of history and exciting programs to boot! Start your trek with a short hike through Ponil to Bent Camp, where your Ranger will pass on valuable skills. Head up the South Ponil Creek, where a train and logging trucks once traversed over 100 years ago. See what’s left of the old cabins at Pueblano Ruins, and join the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. for some railroad tie making as you head Baldy Skyline Camp. Make your way up to historic Baldy Town and visit the museum and try your hand at assaying before settling in for a night of rest. Wake up early to begin your loop up to the summit of Baldy Mountain and enjoy the tremendous 360 degree views. Continue your circle down to Copper Park and into French Henry and explore Lucien Maxwell’s best gold producing Aztec Mine. Do a little blacksmithing before making your way back around to Baldy Town to reflect on your amazing day! Your last full day takes you to the Mountain Man Rendezvous at Miranda, where you will get hands on lessons with tomahawks and muzzle loading rifles. The next morning you will make your way to the Trailhead for your bus pickup and your journey back to Base Camp where you can share your stories and experiences with Scouts from all over!
