BUFFALO TRAIL SCOUT RANCH
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Davis Mountains in West Texas, this 9,000-acre ranch is one of America’s premier Adventure camps. The camp is nationally recognized and fully accredited by the Boy Scouts of America. In operation since 1947, this beautiful ranch has met the needs of Scouts, Leaders, and their families for over 70 years.
Millions of years ago, volcanic activity sent the Davis Mountains 6500+ feet above sea level. Erosion these volcanoes left the rocky peaks 2000 feet above the valley floors. The igneous rocks formed some of the most beautiful canyons, highest peaks, and tallest cliffs in Texas. Tall century plants, Spanish dagger, pinion pine, juniper, big tooth maple, yucca plants, cacti, and all kinds of wildlife fill the valleys and peaks of this beautiful ranch.
Opportunities abound for the newest Scout, the oldest Scout, and the Venturer. Quality advancement, nature study, backpacking programs, horseback riding, rifle and archery, swimming, lifesaving and amazing first year camper program name just a few of the exciting programs possible at the ranch.
We thought that this would be a good practice trek for Philmont, turned out Philmont would have been good practice for here.
