12-Day, 9-Day and 7-Day Treks

12-Day Treks

As the traditional backpacking trek at Philmont, 12-day treks give crews the opportunity to hike for 10 days in the backcountry, with an arrival/departure day in Base Camp on each end of the journey. Crews will be welcomed and accompanied by a Philmont Ranger for their first 3 days and will participate in program activities throughout their trek. 12-day crews cover 50-120 miles over the course of their trek, and also complete the 3 hours of conservation work necessary to earn the Philmont Arrowhead Patch.

9-Day Treks

Brand-new in 2020, 9-day treks are an opportunity for crews to spend a couple more days in the backcountry than they would on a 7-day trek. With a couple more days to acclimate and hike, 9-day crews will have the chance to fit in more hiking and more  program. Crews will be welcomed and accompanied by a Philmont Ranger for their first 3 days and will participate in program activities throughout their trek. Itineraries for these treks are currently being created, but 9-day crews will complete the 3 hours of conservation work necessary to earn the Philmont Arrowhead Patch

7-Day Treks

These treks are shorter, but no less adventurous. Crews on 7-day treks will hike for 5 days in the backcountry, with an arrival/departure day in Base Camp on each end of the journey. Crews will be welcomed and accompanied by a Philmont Ranger for their first 3 days and will participate in program activities throughout their trek. 7-day treks include multiple itineraries over 50 miles, as well as the 3 hours of conservation work necessary to earn the Philmont Arrowhead Patch.
