Compare 2020 Trek 9 to 2019 Trek 9


2020 description: 'Looking for a trek that follows rushing streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses lofty peaks across Philmont’s South Country? This is it! Hone your land navigation skills at Zastrow before camping at Rayado River for the night. Next, hike through Abreu and drink a cool root beer at the Cantina before helping the incident command staff at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission that will challenge your crew to work together. From there, enjoy the hike to Crags through the Notch and be one of the lucky few to sleep at the bottom of Rayado Canyon. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will be seen from the trail on your way to Fish Camp where you will get to tour Waite Phillips' Rayado Lodge at the confluence of the Agua Fria and Rayado Creeks. Enjoy the hike up the Agua Fria to the beautiful meadows of Apache Springs. The next morning, learn about the Jicarilla Apache and shoot 3-D archery targets before setting off to the mountain men of the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. Tomahawks and tall tales await you there at Clear Creek. Spend a night on the trail at Comanche Creek before swinging down to Beaubien for roping, branding, horseback rides, a chuckwagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. Hike over to Lookout Meadow and enjoy the views that helped the camp earn its’ name! Don’t forget to visit Crater Lake and the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. As you make your way to Miners Park for some rock climbing and rappelling. Your final challenges await you…Shaefers Peak and the Tooth of Time!'
