Reavis Falls is in the heart of the superstitions and at a towering 196 feet, is taller than the Niagara Falls... and we're going to rappel it.
Starting from Rogers Trough we'll hike 14 miles on Trail #109 heading north going through Reavis Ranch and continuing on until we peel off the main trail and head down the steep canyon towards the creek where we'll set up camp. Once camp is set up we'll hike up the creek approximately 1/2 mile (no trail) to Reavis Falls.
Optional Badass route.
Those that are up for the adventure will leave the main group approx 10 miles into the hike and start the off trail section to the top of Reavis Falls. From there we'll set the anchor and descend nearly 200' and meet the rest of the group. Hopefully the falls will be raging for better pictures.
At camp we'll cook up Canyon Carne Asada Fajitas and Margaritas.
The next day we'll head back out on a steep ascent for the first mile back to trail #109 and trace our route back to the car at Rogers Trough. We'll stop for cold beers and burgers after.
30 miles RT.
6400 ft of total accumulated gain.
