I was there a few weeks ago. There was plenty of water in the creek near the ranch. I even spoke to a friend who said that water was running at Angel Basin. I'm wondering if still is? Mary

Just wondering... Did you get out to Reavis? I was thinking of heading out that way in the next few weeks... my brother moved down from Montana and he wants to hit the wilderness... is it swimmable?

I don't think Reavis would be swimmable. You could play in the water a bit but thats about it!

I was at Reevis this weekend, the 14th and 15th. The water was just over ankle deep in most of Reevis Creek. I do not think you could swim at Reevis Ranch.
You could swim in Rogers Canyon.
There were some 3 to 4 feet deep pools down Rogers Canyon, where it meets fish Canyon (just before Frog Springs),

The bugs were really thick.

On a side note when did the forest service remove all of the buildings and farm machines from Reevis Ranch?

Thanks

In response to tkknc's reply:

According to "Hiker's Guide to the Superstition Wilderness", the stone walls of the ranch house were removed in January 1994, having been damaged by fire in November 1991. It has a picture of taken in November 1993 that shows the walls more or less intact, but the roof and windows gone.

As of two years ago, there were still a few implements to be found scattered about.

I was out there a few weeks ago, and yeah, he's still there. Very stinky.
