Autumn Adventure Trek Only Purchase

Because you are registering with the PSA but paying Philmont, you can only purchase Autumn Adventure Treks (or early arrival add-on) on this order. If you would like to purchase shirts or patches or memberships or donations or anything but this trek, please do so on a separate order. We don't have a way to enforce that in our store software, so we're counting on you to help us. Any order which contains items that are "not this Autumn Adventure Trek" will be cancelled and you may lose your slot until you complete a Autumn Adventure Trek-only order. Worse, you may lose the slot completely if someone else completes their order correctly first. Don't worry, if you've already added non-Autumn Adventure Trek items to the order, you can remove them from your cart before check-out.

This year we'll have three crews with up to 14 people each for a total of 42 slots. You can choose regular trek (2 crews) or to base-camp (1 crew) at a camp of the crew's choice from either Clark's Fork, Crater Lake, Miners' Park, Carson Meadows, Urraca, Ponil, Pueblano, or Head of Dean.

Please note...

  1. The base-camp session is still a backcountry experience and participants will be in the backcountry for the duration of their trip. All gear and medical forms must be within Philmont’s backcountry guidelines.
  2. Although crews will set up at camp, the facilities and amenities of that camp will not be accessible. All water and gas lines are off for the season and cabins are locked.
