Annual Reavis Ranch "C" Overnight Backpacking Trip. TD: 12 mi EC: 1300 ft Pace: Mellow. We do this one every year! We will carpool to the Roger's Canyon trailhead in the Eastern Superstition Mountains. From here we hike up Grave Canyon to Reavis Saddle and descend a long shady easy descent into Reavis Valley where we camp for the night. This beautiful valley was once the home of Elisha Reavis, somewhat of a hermit who grew fruit and vegetables to bring to market. There are lots of great campsites and places to explore once we get there. This is for backpackers with some experience backpacking. You will need your overnight gear and a water filter. There is always water at the site.
Meeting time is 7am on Saturday, October 23 at the Home Depot at Power Road and US 60. Exit the 60 at Power and go south. The Home Depot is on the right. Please RSVP is for plan to come, if you just show up you will NOT be included in the outing.
