If your crew is interested climbing, mining, and muzzle loading rifles, then this itinerary is for you! Begin your journey at the Zastrow Trailhead with your Ranger and make your way to Aguila trail camp to continue your training. Your first staff camp will be a visit to Crater Lake where you learn skills from the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co, as well as complete your conservation project. Off to Miners Park for a unique climbing experience. Check out their climbing wall, climbing gym, and participate in crate stacking if you get the chance! Rest up that night, as your next day brings you your first mountain climbing experience! Climb up and over Shaefers Pass and climb to the top of Shaefers Peak and enjoy the views. Head down to Clarks Fork for some Western Lore activities, a chuckwagon dinner, and a boot stomping time at their evening campfire program. The next day brings your crew through the Demonstration Forest and Hunting Lodge for some time with the foresters or a tour of the Hunting Lodge. Cimarroncito will be your next camp, where you will be able to enjoy more rock climbing and rappelling on natural rock. The climbing gym and traverse wall at the camp also provide a unique climbing challenge. Up and at ‘em, as your next day takes you up to Cyphers Mine for an opportunity to get hands on experiences learning the life of a miner, pan for gold, tour the Contention Mine, and enjoy a rip-roaring time at The Stomp! Two more peaks await you, Comanche Peak, and Philmont’s second highest peak, Mount Phillips. You’ll spend the night at Mount Phillips camp before heading down and spending the rest of the day with the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. and learn how to throw tomahawks and shoot muzzle loading rifles. From there you will move on to the CS Ranch’s American Creek trail camp for the night at this new trail camp. Your journey is almost complete, but not before hiking down the Tolby Road Trail, which offers breathtaking views of the Wheeler Peak Range as you make your way to the Tolby Trailhead, and ultimately back to Base Camp.
