Short Treks Seven-day Short Treks are scheduled on specific dates, generally in August. If your crew has been assigned a Short Trek, your Crew Advisor will receive a booklet of Short Trek itineraries. The Short Trek booklet will contain a postcard that will be used to submit your five short trek itinerary choices. After this postcard is received by Philmont, one of the itineraries will be assigned and your Crew Advisor will receive an email with the assignment. Please use the “special” Short Trek postcard attached to the cover of your Short Trek Itinerary Booklet.
