Reavis Ranch - Ladies Only - Beginners Trip

 

This will be a fun beginners backpacking trip in the Superstitions geared to helping women learn how to backpack.This moderate hike is 18.6 miles round trip (9.3 miles each day) with a total of 2,824' of elevation gain..

Here's the plan: We'll talk ahead of time to coordinate what gear you’ll need, plan a group dinner, and ensure that everyone's pre-trip questions are answered.

On Saturday morning, we'll carpool to the Reavis Ranch Trailhead in the Superstitions and start hiking on the Reavis Ranch Trail #109. We will eat lunch about the halfway point, and then continue on to the beautiful apple orchards at Reavis Ranch.  Just past the orchards we will set up camp, gather firewood and prepare for a nice dinner together.   There is a small creek with reliable water near the campsite. On Sunday we'll follow the same route out in time to enjoy a late lunch at Tortilla Flats.

We'll have a great time and will have the opportunity to talk about backpacking skills and practices with the goal of helping you be comfortable in the backcountry.

    Thanks, Kym, for leading us on a great trip! Hope to see you all on the trail soon! Also, I exchanged my water filtration system already. Maybe this one will last longer.

    I was so looking forward to this but I broke my ankle canyoneering this weekend so I don't think I'll be backpacking for a while! (I had surgery and it looks like I will have a full recovery). Have fun ladies and I hope to be on a trip with you sometime after I heal!

    I am going to bow out and let someone on the waiting list in. I wanted to do this with my daughter but I haven't gotten her out hiking enough.
