FS 212 - Reavis Trailhead

Post by Mr_Squishy » Jan 12 2015 7:41 am

I'm heading to the Reavis Ranch TH this week and wondered if a passenger car could negotiate the FS road.

Access via the north is never a problem.

From the south there is a thread with very recent posts on this topic.

FS 212 was fine for sedans back in September 2014. Haven't seen it washed out in recent years.

@joe bartels
I was there in November in a high clearance 4WD and thought it seemed ok for lower clearance vehicles. Just wanted to check if there was more current info. Thanks, Joe.

@chumley
Unless you have to drive back to AJ in the dark in a big ford 4WD van....gotta love those narrow Apache Trail roads.

@Mr Squishy
Unless your big Ford van doesn't have headlights (or an engine?), I think driving back to AJ at night should pose no problems. Hundreds of people do it at all hours of every day. :-k

@chumley
I did the drive back in November of which I speak, praying that I wouldn't meet another vehicle coming the other way as I headed up the long narrow hill. (Fish creek hill) I've driven many such roads in my big rig, but I'd only been on this road on the way to FS 212, so it was a bit unfamiliar, especially in the dark. And I am thinking it may be time to get some headlights for Old Bessy.

@Mr Squishy
Drove the road in my VLC (Very Low Clearance) Saturn Ion with no problems - it had recently been graded. Lots of tourists driving on the Apache Trail Friday afternoon when I headed back to AJ after my Reavis Ranch/Circlestone/Mound Mountain trip.
