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 Philmont camping procedures with your Ranger before camping at Old Abreu for the night. Hopefully you enjoyed a cold root beer as you hiked through Abreu! Get up bright and early the next day so you can help at the incident command post at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission that will challenge your crew to work together. From there, enjoy the hike through the Notch and be one of few that have enjoyed the stellar views via this hike along this canyon. 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 and learn about the Jicarilla Apache and shoot 3-D archery targets before setting off to to Beaubien for roping, branding, a chuckwagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. A big day is ahead of you as you make your way over Trail Peak and pay your respects to the crash site of a B24 Liberator. Don’t forget to visit the loggers of the Continental Tie & Lumber Co. for some tie making as you head to Miners Park for some rock climbing and rappelling. Another challenge awaits you…Shaefers Peak and the Tooth of Time! Celebrate your accomplishment as you watch the sun set while you stay at Tooth Ridge Camp. You can look to the South and see your next destination...the haunted Urraca Mesa for your final night on the trail. Complete their challenge course events and enjoy their evening campfire as the staff regale stories of the eclectic history of this landmark! Your last morning on the trail can be enjoyed on Inspiration Point, before you make your way up and over the mesa to the Zastrow your trailhead and bus ride back to base camp!
