Great view of PTC and nice challenge with the catwalk at the end which explains the difficulty rating. Other than that the journey there wasn’t strenuous.

I hiked parts of this trail on my 1st trip to Philmont. We were dropped at the Kit Carson Museum and stopped by Zastrow for some duct tape ball, and then hiked to the Rayado River Camp.

Fantastic trek! Lots of great activities and it gets rugged the last two days. Just beautiful.
