HIGH adventure

The chilly temperatures of spring offer much of the training you'll need to learn how to not just survive, but thrive in the cold

Looking for a snowy adventure? Sacramento NM has snowfall through January for you to experience a winter wonderland!

As the snow melts and gives way to summer, our spring time stays decently cold for you to test out your gear and be the most prepared for your Philmont trek

Backpacking or
Base camping

You'll have the opportunity to trek through Lincoln National Forest and camp at our outposts or stay in one place and adventure throughout the day to return to your Cabin or Tent on base!

Our on and off property terrain is great for beginnner to experienced hikers and backpackers, with plenty of views and stops along the way.

Our historic sites offer unique visits that aren't offered in the summer and our weather allows for cool mountain air during the rugged day and chilly temps at night to compliment the s'mores and warmth of the sleeping bag.
