Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scouts of America’s premier High Adventure™ base, challenges Scouts and Venturers with more than 214 square miles of rugged northern New Mexico wilderness. Backpacking treks, horseback cavalcades, and training and service programs offer young people many ways to experience this legendary country.
Troop 50 has been taking part in treks at Philmont as far back as 1975. Our next trek will be the summer of 2019.
Philmont Scout Ranch has a great bunch of videos that will help with every step of the trek. From choosing boots, fitting a pack, and clothing layers to selecting a campsite, cooking, cleaning, and setting up a bear bag.
