Compare 2021 Trek 902 to 2020 Trek 902


2021 description: 'Take a trip back in time with this itinerary that is chock full of unique programs and relics from the past! Start your journey through this timeline after getting off the bus at the Six-Mile Gate Trailhead for a visit to the first confirmed T-Rex track in the world. Look for other fossils and footprints as you head upstream to Indian Writings where you will tour the fascinating petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloan people prior to 1300 CE and work on an archaeological dig to discover more clues of their activities on Philmont property. Head up the North Ponil Canyon after completing your conservation project to link up with the Cimarron & Northwestern Railroad at Metcalf Station. Work on the railroad, do some blacksmithing, then enjoy their nightly campfire program. Then, make your way down to Ponil where you will be taken back to the old west! Try your hand at branding and roping, then reward yourself with a cold root beer in the Cantina before heading to your trail camp nearby. The next step of your journey in time takes you to the early 1900s, where the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. will teach you how to climb a spar pole and use a broad axe. End the day at their company meeting campfire and learn of the toils and struggles of the life of a logger. Your final destination is Miranda for a layover, where you will be transported to 1838 and the mountain man rendezvous. Shoot muzzle loading rifles, throw tomahawks and be regaled with the many tall tales the trappers will share with you. Spend one of your layover days to enjoy some time at Baldy Town before making the ultimate ascent to Philmont’s highest peak, Baldy Mountain! Your journey through time is almost over as you hike down to the Maxwell Trailhead on your final morning so you can meet your bus for your trip back to Base Camp.'
