Compare 2016 Trek 710 to 2015 Trek 710


This great trek will enable your crew to enjoy great program experiences, hike through gorgeous canyons, and climb the rugged Baldy Mountain! Begin your trek on Ted Turner's Vermejo Park Ranch and spend the night where few crews have the opportunity to camp at Campos Heck Camp. You will then be able to rock climb and rappel at Dean Cow before hiking to New Dean for the night. Continue up Dean Canyon to Head of Dean where your crew will have to work together to make it through the challenge course. From there, your crew will have the opportunity to work with Philmont's Conservation Department on a new trail construction project near Baldy Skyline. If you are lucky, the far east campsite at the bottom of Ewells Park will be available so you can preview your Baldy Mountain ascent and watch the sunset while eating dinner. Side hike Baldy Mountain and visit historic Baldy Town before returning to beautiful Ewells. From there, it will be all downhill, unless you decide to take the challenge and hike over Wilson Mesa to Ponil. Once at Ponil, test your roping skills, learn to brand, cook a chuckwagon dinner, and enjoy the cantina show before turning in for the night. Eat a cowboy breakfast before hiking to the Ponil Turnaround. Next stop… Base Camp!
