Hitch ’em up and hike ’em out!
Trekking . . .in the Rockies. . . across the back country . . . in high mountain meadows bustling with wildflowers . . . by sparkling silver streams wandering through cool green glens . . . on red stone ridges cutting cobalt blue skies!
Philmont . . .Scouting’s paradise . . . 215 square miles of rugged wilderness in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains.
Each year, tens of thousands of Scouts from all over the nation discover the experience is an opportunity of a lifetime. Many will say years later . . . Philmont changed my life!
There is much to Philmont. But when most people hear the name, one thing comes to mind: backpacking. The backpacking treks are a part of Philmont’s High Adventure Programs, and Philmont offers a wide variety of them. Each program brings with it a different set of challenges and requirements.
No two days are alike; no two treks are ever the same; yet the memories of those who have gone are always the same . . .
“I want to go back!”
