Routes

The routing information provided here is for coarse level planning and comparision only - not for purposes of land navigation or detailed trek planning.. It is not complete nor is it entirely accurate. Navigation and trek planning should always use the latest maps available from the ranch. Routes marked 'USGS' were created by hand using the latest USGS data for the ranch, which is, in most cases, ten or more years out of date. Routes marked 'Phil GIS yyyy' were also created by hand but by using current (yyyy) Philmont GIS maps for reference. Routes marked 'GPS yyyy' are traces of GPS tracks and therefore represent the most accurate of the three.

All routes are, obviously, bi-directional .. there are no 'one-way' routes. In most cases, net elevation change and gross elevation change are provided for both directions although in some cases, for instance most of the tooth ridge approaches to camping headquarters are modeled inbound only.

Routes are named for their endpoints with the two endpoints alphabetized. So, if you are going from Urraca to Bear Caves look for the route under 'Bear Caves'.
Side hikes normally will have identical starting and ending points, so Trail Peak will appear as a 'Beaubien to Beaubien' route.

Requests for missing routes or special routes in support of short treks or autumn adventure will be entertained, make your request via the comments link.
