Classic Treks


Ideal for: Everyone from first-timers to experts.   |   Ages: 8 and Up   |   Dates: June 9th – Aug 5th


Glorieta Loop

This is a great place to start. The trailhead is right out the back door and the schedule is more activity based, rather than a peak or distance being the goal. Although you’re on the trail you still get to try new things like rock climbing and rappelling, or you can jump in the swimming hole and warm up in the sauna.

  • Ideal for: Younger Groups, first-time backpackers, trips less than 4 days
  • Ages: 13 and Up (can be modified for younger groups ages 10+ as well)
  • Dates: Year Round


New Mexico Peaks

New Mexico is often called “Colorado without the crowds”. While peaks in Colorado are jammed packed with “peak baggers”, New Mexico has dozens of peaks to choose from with no crowds and is one of the best-kept secrets in the Rockies. Climbs above tree line will reward you with views that will take your breath away and give you pause to reflect. Take your time, chances are you will be alone on your summit and your group will experience true solitude.

  • Ideal for: Classic Trek Groups, churches, schools, small groups, family groups
  • Ages: 13 and Up
  • Dates: Spring, Summer, Fall
  • Packages: 2-6 Night Packages Available


The Pecos Wilderness

A favorite area of famed trapper Kit Karson, the Pecos Wilderness includes peaks such as Pecos Baldy and Truchas Peak as the primary goals of the trip. Truchas is the second largest peak in New Mexico (and the most remote) and to many, offers the most spectacular vistas and views. Shhhhhhhhh!! This beautiful wilderness area is one of the best-kept secrets of Northern New Mexico and gets climbed less than 2 dozen times a year.

  • Ideal for: Groups who want a summit attempt on their trip
  • Ages: 13 and Older
  • Dates: Spring, Summer, Fall

Basecamp Adventures

These adventures stay at our base camp where numerous fun resources and activities are available including the waterfront, zip lines, drift trikes, coffee shop, home-style cooking and more. In between, we hit the trail to take in the breath-taking Glorieta mountain and wilderness scenery.

  • Ideal for: Groups who want to sleep in a bed every night but still have adventures during the day
  • Ages: 13 and Older (this can also be configured for pre-teens ages 10-12yrs old) 
  • Dates: Summer
  • Packages: 3, 5 & 6 Night Packages Available

Individual Trips

These special backpacking trips are for individuals not attached to a group. These trips are on specific weeks and can be enjoyed by anyone. Whether you are by yourself or with a group of friends, this is an experience that will not be soon forgotten. All trips start from Santa Fe, New Mexico. These trips are great for people who want to go on a great trip but don’t have anyone to go with. You will have plenty of opportunities to meet others!  If you have a group of at least 6 friends and would like to try one of the other trips. Give us a call.

  • Ideal for: Individuals who want to experience Trek but do not have a group to come with
  • Ages: High School ages 14-18
  • Dates: June 16-22 or July 21-27, 2019

Pack & Paddle Adventure

Pack & Paddle is a popular combination of one of our 5 or 6-day backpacking trips with a half or full day of white water rafting on the Rio Grande river outside of Taos, New Mexico.

  • Ideal for: Groups going on a classic Trek who also want to raft
  • Ages: 13 and Up
  • Dates: Spring, Summer, Fall
  • 6-7 Night Packages Available
