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.
