Yup. Hiking into Reavis from either side and up to Circlestone and then back out again in a day, even in cool temps, falls pretty close to death march status. I suppose it can be done but it'd be more of a fitness hike than an enjoyable experience. Besides, both the ranch area and Circlestone are neat areas that deserve more than a rest stop.teva wrote:Some time ago I plotted the a trip to circlestone from all trailheads. Nothing was within my day range. 14-16 low grade miles is all I can hack. Possibly in 70 degree weather but not in the middle of summer.
iirc, Joe's first backpack was into peterson ranch (also apples) back in the day. man, it's been years! i never really thought he'd start out with a 1.5 lb tarptent and a 15° marmot down bag but he went big and got the right stuff. second BP was kendrick with the gang, correct?nealz wrote:I've often thought that Teva's first backpack trip should be into Reavis and Circlestone. Waddya say, Joe?
