Re: Current conditions in the Superstitions

@Alligatorjoe Wish I could help - but the best I can tell you is that I have a SUV that I couldn't get too much past FR 650 near Whitford Canyon, and I remember the hike up to Rogers Trough and that is one really rough road. I suspect snow will not be the big issue, but water crossings and mud coul...

Re: Current conditions in the Superstitions

Just got back - yes it was COLD on Monday night, and Reavis Creek had lots of water (maybe shin deep and flowing fast - but very doable crossings). There were a lot of downed trees and branches as we approached Reavis Ranch from the north, and we did not go much past the ranch, so can't comment on t...

Re: Current conditions in the Superstitions

Sandy - I would agree since you are going from Picketpost. My brother in law just attempted that and had to turn back after the first day because of all the water crossings. That made me worry about my plans (we are going tomorrow) - but we are hiking in from the north on Reavis ranch trail, so that...

Current conditions in the Superstitions

Has anyone been up to Reavis Ranch Trail 109 from the north (from FR 212) going to Reavis Ranch since this last storm? Just curious how the conditions are - both getting to the trail and the trail itself and any water crossings getting to the ranch. Looking to go out after this weekend and hoping fo...

Re: Passage 11 - Santa Catalina or Pusch Ridge Bypass

one cyclist asked if we needed anything. One of us jokingly said a cold beer would be nice. Well, like magic, that cyclist pulled a cold pint of ale out of his pack and gave it to us! Well, THAT settles it then. I take back my comment about cyclist. Bring em on ;) And I also do mountain biking so I...

Re: Passage 11 - Santa Catalina or Pusch Ridge Bypass

So it sounds like the "official" route is the way to go for less people and better scenery? Is that what you are saying? Since I'm not familiar with that area I'm not sure what the bike route implies. . . but I'd rather not have a bunch of mountain bikers zooming past. And Wilderness of the Rocks ar...

Passage 11 - Santa Catalina or Pusch Ridge Bypass

I am planning to do passage 11 and 12 at the end of May and was looking at my datasheets and see that there is now an option of doing the 11.7 miles on passage 11 or doing the Pusch Ridge Wilderness bypass that takes a different route and ties back into passage 12 at Oracle Ridge Trailhead. Does any...
