Trek Materials

 

 
 

Philmont Scout Ranch provides an unforgettable adventure along its hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. Program features combine the best of the old West—horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, chuck wagon dinners, and interpretive history—with exciting challenges for today—rock climbing, burro racing, mountain biking, and rifle shooting—in an unbeatable recipe for fast-moving, outdoor fun.

But there's a lot more to Philmont than backpacking. Other programs include horseback expeditions called Cavalcades; extended expeditions called Rayado Treks, a 20-day advanced backpacking trek; R.O.C.S., the 21-day Roving Outdoor Conservation School; Order of the Arrow Trail Crew, a 14-day trail-building and hiking program; and Ranch Hands, a 16-day program in which participants work with the Horse Department and experience a Cavalcade.

Check the Troop 629 calendar for our next Philmont adventure date.
