Fall is the best time to camp at Philmont. Experience the pleasure of hiking the Philmont backcountry, when the aspen trees change to gold. Enjoy warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights. View the splendor of Philmont fall colors. Observe wildlife preparing for winter.
Last fall just a handful of PSA members got to experience first hand what the Autumn Adventure program at Philmont is all about. It was amazing. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to participate this year. Create your own itinerary and hike for days without seeing anyone outside of your crew. At first glance the ranch seems closed for the season, but the magic of the place never ceases.
Autumn Adventure is open to crews of six to 12 participants accompanied by an Autumn Adventure guide. Know some friends you would like to share the Philmont experience with? Form your own crew and create your custom itinerary. Don’t know anyone you can get to come with you? Sign up and you will be put in a crew of other PSA members. All participants must be registered members of the BSA (but not necessarily the PSA).
Hiking at Philmont hasn’t gotten any easier. Make sure that you are ready for the physical activity involved with enjoying HOmE on foot. Also the autumn weather is different than the summer weather we are all used to. You need to be prepared, but it’s worth it.
The fee for Autumn Adventure is $40 per person per day, which includes all trail food and a staff guide. This year the PSA treks will be held from September 9-14. Sign up early so that crews can be formed and itineraries planned. For your planning purposes it is helpful to know that you will hit the trail the day you arrive and can leave the day you come off the trail, but many spend the night and enjoy some off-trail fellowship over dinner.
