This may be a little outside your 300 mile radius but if you're looking for
a prep for Philmont you may wish to consider part of the River To River
Trail across southern Illinois from Battery Rock on the Ohio River to Grand
Tower on the Mississippi. You can order a VERY nice book that details the
trail with sections of Topo maps that cover the trail. The Garden of the
Gods area to Eddyville is worth the trip.

The Rimrock area and Pounds Lake area just east of the Garden of the Gods
is really nice too.
Hope This Helps.
