The Cottonwood Gulch Prairie Trek began in 1926 when our founder, Hillis Howie, learned of plans to pave Route 66. He wanted to make sure that his students learned about the American West and Native cultures before it was too late. This 5 week, all male Trek will inspire and challenge young men through wilderness backpacking, local service projects, rock climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, and exploration of cultural and scientific sites around the Four Corners. Prairie Trekkers spend a large part of their Trek traveling from site to site, bound only by the road and their destination. The remaining time will be spend at our Base Camp property located in the Zuni Mountains. Here Trekkers will work on their personal legacy projects that may include forest restoration projects, organic farming projects, or special carpentry additions to Base Camp. Prairie Trekkers have the highest rate of return and represent a 90 year legacy here at The Gulch.

Mountain Desert Trek is an experience unlike any other. Are you ready to spend 6 weeks backpacking through desert canyons, up mountain peaks, across rivers, and into the wilderness? Do you enjoy ghost towns, Native American cultures, local artists and musicians, service learning, and organic farming? The Cottonwood Gulch Mountain Desert Trek is our longest and most intensive Trek designed for young men and women ages 16-18. This Trek will spend much of their 44 days exploring sites like a Colorado 14er, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, The Great Sand Dunes, and many other world class destinations. MDT Trekkers will develop leadership skills through personal projects, planning expeditions, demonstrating expedition mentality, and communal living. Most importantly, Trekkers will learn self-reliance, compassion for their peers, and how to overcome personal challenges.
