Superstitions Water

Post by SJFL »

Hi. I hope everyone is doing relatively ok amidst everything.

I have a question about water in the Superstitions.

I gather the Supes just opened back up. It's hard to believe that between the last two summers of fires, the place is completely burnt. It's sad to know this. But I want to go in and check it out for myself.

I saw there was a posting that indicated that there are three reliable springs in the Supes: Charlebois of the Dutchman trail, La Barge Spring (around Dutchman and Red Tanks intersection), and Reavis Creek at Fireline.

But I also know we had a bad monsoon this past year. Does anyone know if there is reliable water in there now? And if so, what the sources are?

Thank you for your time.

Had to cross over water at least twice when hiking to Reavis Ranch from Rogers Trough trail head. The water was clear and cool on Oct 14th. One of these attached pictures was at the Fire Line Trail crossing and the other a few hundred feet before.

@BuzzingMantis
We must have passed each other. I was in on that day too. The water went up the trail towards Roger Trough for at least a half mile (away from the Ranch). And along the trail (back towards Rogers Trough) I saw some coming in from a side canyon which was at least a mile away from the Ranch.

FYI: water in Campaign Creek too.
