Re: Reavis Ranch Fri-Sat

Re: Reavis Ranch Fri-Sat

After sleeping on it :wrt: and thinking about it :scared: I've decided to just go into Reavis and directly back out. This kind of mileage in a day and a half, although humanly possible, would be unpleasant. The factor of hiking in the dark, unfamiliar trails, numerous creek crossings, possible bould...

Re: Reavis Ranch Fri-Sat

O.K. finished mapping it. The planned hike is way too long at 38+mi. I decided to cut it to a more manageable 31.7. What I did was cut off trail up a canyon to connect from Reavis Ranch trail south of the camp (south of the saddle) to Frog Tanks via what is marked Roger's Canyon on the topo. However...

Reavis Ranch Fri-Sat

Trip 2/12/10-2/13/10. I'm planning to go to Reavis Ranch Friday afternoon (hopefully leaving the trail head by 1:00PM) and spend the night. Saturday, coming back via Reavis saddle, Rogers Canyon, Frog Tanks and back on the Reavis Ranch trail. I haven't mapped the whole mileage but it looks like a lo...

Re: Backpacking gear

A pillow. It's a backpacking variety. One that you blow up with padding inside. I need the extra height or my neck kills me in the morning. Stuffing clothes in a stuff stack isn't the same. It's one luxury that I appreciate greatly. :D

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Going up Hieroglyphic instead of down makes a big difference. Although going down Siphon Draw, tired at the end of the day, was work; it was still way better than going down that steep upper end of Hieroglyphic canyon. There's a flat rock section (on a 50%+ grade) with some loose rock on it that wou...

Re: Researching GPS

I have the Garmin Colorado 300 (which might not be available anymore). You can adjust the screen brightness and load maps from a memory chip. I got it because it has a high gain antenna. Besides hiking in AZ I use it down in Central America hiking in jungle. It picks up signals through heavy forest ...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

The more I look at the elevation profiles of both the steeper one doesn't look too bad. It appears easier to find and now that I hear that it's doable I feel better. Besides, I didn't like idea of tromping through a bunch of cactus just because it's slightly less steep. I'll have them both loaded in...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Rick - Some concerns with the route up Heiro past the pools where you were to the Ridgeline (anybody who knows please advise). Pulling both the Ridgeline and Heiro GPS routes I started mapping it out on the a couple of topo programs I have (I like using tracks). On the Heiro connection where I draw ...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Any chance to start earlier… say 6:30am ? Rick - This sounds like a good idea, starting earlier. It gets light around 7:00. It may be too late to change but It's a good idea instead of being rushed along the hike to get back. Days are shorter now and the sun goes down fast at the end of the day. If...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

In response to Rick Vincent: I'm in. I wanted to the Ridgeline for some time but all of my hiking has been by myself. To go alone, first time, seemed like a bad idea. I've been averaging 12+ mi day hikes for some time now. Last week I did Reavis Falls and the week before a loop through Terrapin and...
