The 2000 Philmont Autumn Adventure program runs from August
25 - November 9. No reservations are accepted for September
30 - October 4 as Philmont is closed for the annual elk hunt.
As several have stated, Autumn Adventure is the only Philmont
program in which an all adult crew may participate. Philmont weight
limits are in effect. The cost is $25 per person per day. Thus, a
5 day trek will cost $125 per person. The fee covers the cost of
trail food, water purification chemical, bear bag & rope and a guide.
A $100 crew deposit is required to book an Autumn Adventure.
The remaining fee is due upon arrival.
The program is very flexible. It may consist of a day hike or a
serious backpacking trek lasting several days.
For additional information or inquire about 2000 available dates,
contact Philmont at 505-376-2281.
Philmont maintains a special mailing list for their "off season"
camping programs (Autumn Adventure and Kanik). To get on
